I consider myself an organized person. Ask me for anything, I can put my hands on it in under five minutes. Birth certificates, immunization records, insurance paperwork, Mo's second grade report card. I know where it all is, at all times.
The flip side of being super organized is that I'm also a tremendous piler. I know it seems like the two of those things would be at odds but if you don't have time to put it away correctly then you should set it aside until you have time to do it right.
I have lived in this house for two and a half years. Mo and I moved from a two bedroom apartment into this four bedroom house with a basement and the hoarding gremlins are taking over. The sad part is that I'm a purger. Anytime I'm stressed I purge, I load the car and take everything I can fit in there to the local thrift store, still my cabinets overflow.
My kitchen was someones really bad idea. It's poorly designed and has almost no usable cabinets. The ones that are actually usable are organized, the others are nightmares. Why am I telling you this? I'm hoping to embarrass myself into cleaning these out.
