So, to continue with my nesting series – or ‘attempting to be organised although I hate the process of organising’.
Once upon a time I had reached an admirable level of organisation in this cupboard. I had sorted collage, paints, craft materials etc. into boxes. However, in the last few months, the temptation to stuff them into the cupboard without putting them in the correct box became too great, which then led to the inability to get to the correct box because of all the clutter. Which led to not putting the boxes back away (due to extra clutter that had accumulated somehow during a craft activity) and the boxes had been stashed around the house. It’s just a downward spiral really…
And even after my latest organisational efforts, I’m left with a whole heap of
crap bits and bobs that I can’t throw out or don’t know where to place. Here’s what I still have left. This is why I hate organising. This basket stresses me out.
So, I re-organised the boxes. Took away some boxes that had just become dumping boxes and sorted them into new boxes. The top shelf had never been completely pleasing, but I’ve decluttered it a bit, thrown out some things and boxed the children’s games in a new more accessible box. Made a huge difference.
So this is what it looks like now.
|One box is full of bigger kid puzzles, 2nd box is kiddy games. There’s a stack of boxes of grown up games up the top.|
