What A Mess!
I have boxes designated for 'things and stuff'. I have jars which show the 'things and stuff'. I have drawers in which to store the 'things and stuff'. I have shelves which actually hold 'things and stuff'.
But there is a corner of my desk that defies any organization that I might practice. Underneath it all is a metal basket which I put there to hold the items that I might be working with at any given time.
But then there is this. I can hardly see the basket, and like a tidal wave the 'things and stuff' are spilling out over the edges. They are piling up on top of each other. And of course anything I might need is buried deep within this pile.
As I 'glean and gather' it all gets put in this same spot. Oh well, its spring and perhaps the spring cleaning bug will bite me and I'll get it all nice and organized - or not!
