New Years Resolution

This is a photo of my pantry. 


I wish this was a photo of my pantry. 

I wish this was a photo of my closet.

However, it is not.

Organization is not one of my better traits.  I'm not even sure it is a trait that I posses. 

Open a drawer, glance in a cabinet, look in a closet and you will see what I'm talking about.  I have trouble with organization.  I mean really, how do you truly know where to find that paper if it is filed somewhere.  What do you file things under?  I find myself trying to create a file for a file. 

Organization gets me flustered.  And that is why I look at the Container Store website and dream a little dream of what could be.  Or, I do what I did this weekend.

My husband and I went to the IKEA store and browsed for hours.   Who came up with this place??? If you have not been to one, you must find one and go immediately.  They know what kind of place they have built.  It has a restaurant in it!!!  Seriously, you don't place a restaurant in a store that you don't expect people to wander around lost and who have also lost the ability to tell time. 

It had to be one of the coolest stores I have ever been to.  Just how it was set up to look like all of these model rooms.  All of the kitchens, bedrooms and closets.  Oh my!  And just to prove to you my total lack of organizational skills, I left with a milk frother and two ice cube trays.

 Yep, sure did!  Two ice cube trays! 

Well, guess my ice will be organized and pretty!

  1. I found this to be a very funny post. Knowing you and having cleaned your house for a while, I found the pictures especially funny. I'm not sure I'd know how to react if you organized and had your house look like that. Heck!, I consider myself to be organized and mine doesn't even look like that.
