Order out of Chaos
I recently looked around my studio and especially over at the hanging shelves just next to my desk. It looked like hoarder lives here (at least to my eyes). Boxes stuffed with "I might this sometime" things, and more stuff stuffed here and there for lack of space in existing boxes.
What's a girl to do but get in and start sorting, and sorting and sorting. I don't have a lot compared to others but this took all day long. There was the taking out and putting back or setting aside for donations and trash -- and then the putting saved items into proper boxes. Of course there was a run to JoAnn's for newer, bigger boxes to replace the smaller, now scruffy ones I had been using.
Today I can look at these shelves and see nothing but neatly stacked boxes, each holding things I just know I need to have!
