Sugar Bowl Mix: Consumed by stuff

Consumed by stuff

We're contemplating a move at some point in the next year.

"Can we take all our stuff if we move?" was the first thing Katherine said when we told her and Caroline.

"Of course," I said, quickly reassuring her. But now, trying to sort through our stuff in preparation for a pre-move garage sale, I realize that no, we will not be taking all our stuff. Not even close to all our stuff.

I'm a neat freak. I like things put away. But I'm not organized. So on closer inspection of our stuff I made some frightening discoveries.

Like this drawer that is supposed to hold coloring books but now has random papers, stickers, a lone sandal and a shirt.

Or this drawer in Katherine's room. It has various baby lotions left over from the dresser's previous life as a changing table eight years ago, as well as random stuff like Ariel pictures, a headband that never fit and letters.

Or this horse barn in Caroline's room. I'm pretty sure there's not a single horse in there.

Or this catch-all bin and charging station in the kitchen. A purse, swim goggles, crayons - and that's only what's on top.

It's official. I'm consumed by disorganized stuff!

How do you organize all your random stuff? What systems do you have for controlling it and making sure things are put away where they belong?

My random stuff looks a lot like yours. We have several drawers dedicated to holding stuff.

On the off-chance i do go through the piles, it is a pretty great feeling of accomplishment.
