What I Need To Be Better Oganized

A super fantastic friend of mine sent me a link to a blog post that made me feel better about cleaning.  Then I realized this blog had tons of posts like this.  And other stuff, too.  For the last two days I have been reading and reading her stuff.

I really like the way she talks about things and tackles problems.  And I like her solutions to problems. 

I've come to realize a few things.  I don't have a lot of clutter in my home.  Everything has a place.  When my house is totally picked up and clean the only eye sore/thing that bugs me is this bin that has all of the bills/important things that need to be filed away.

Why can't I file them away as I get them?  I don't know....  I guess the first time I put the bills or receipts in the bin was due to laziness.  Didn't want to walk over to the cupboard, grab the filing folder dealy and put them in their respective folders.  The next time and so on when one came I didn't put it in it's folder because it would have been out of order!  And from then it has piled up.  It's so easy to put it in the bin, it's out of the way and we are so used to it being there that it doesn't look out of place to us.

But it really is.

We have too many for one of my little mini filing folders.  I need a filing cabinet.  Jaren mentioned getting one.  We have one down in the basement but it's locked and there isn't a key or something like that.  I'm going to try to find something that will work and will look good out in the open.  Lately I've really wanted design to my home.  Jaren doesn't quite get it... but he will when he see's the finished product.

Besides, they make much better toy's than a filing thingy.

So, I'm file cute file cabinet hunting.  And thank you thank you to my dear friend, Ali for thinking of me.

I once did the same thing as Sarager did but instead of using paper for the drawer fronts I found cute, natural woven placemats and cut them for the fronts. It went really nicely with the baskets I had for the desk shelves. Can't wait to see what you do.
