While organizing our back room, I was left with stacks of shirt boxes, ribbon, bows and rolls of wrapping paper from the holidays. I looked around and couldn't see any good place to keep these things, and I couldn't find a reason why it needed to be out all the time. We have an unfinished basement where we store all of our stuff (junk) and I had a bright idea.
Why don't I take a big box, organize everything inside and store the box in the basement?
So my (ridiculous) idea ended up looking like this:
And I was proud of myself over it.
That's right people, I was PROUD of a box of wrapping paper. PROUD. I felt like I'd really accomplished something. I'm not kidding. Maybe I'd had too much coffee... or not enough.
So I photograph my box of boxes, put it down in the basement and start planning the blog post I'll write on simple ways to organize. (You're either laughing at me or calling me stupid. Or both. It's okay, really.)
The following Monday, I open Blogger and Centsational Girl was in my reader with a post on her DIY Wrapping and Ribbon Organizer. A DIY Wrapping and Ribbon Organizer that looks like this:
I laughed out loud and realized I am way out of my league in the blogging world. WAY OUT OF MY LEAGUE. So if you're interested in a REAL organizing project, visit Centsational Girl. She's way better than me.
