As if the closet wasn't enough... I got sick of looking at the opened and rummaged through boxes of stationary and desk supplies that have long cluttered the top of this desk. I also got sick of sending out letters on scraps of paper with homemade, taped up envelopes!
So, I set to work. Sorted. Organized. Decluttered. And EVENTUALLY, triumphed.
This desk is actually an old sewing desk that I converted into my writing and bill-paying desk. I bought the desk, full of dust and older-than-dirt spools of thread and sewing notions, at an auction for $3.00. Yes. THREE dollars. Therefore, you have no right to judge the single solitary knob that decorates despite missing its' three other siblings. Someday, perhaps it will no longer be an only child, but for now I just say "what do you expect for THREE dollars?!?!"
Now, I am REALLY putting my self out there for all sorts of scrutiny by posting this next photo.
Essentially, I am revealing myself to be the O.C.D freak of nature that I really am. Colored sorted paperclips?!?
Can you say obsessive? Or maybe....PATHETIC?!?
Matt took one look, chuckled and said... "NESTING!"
But overlooking that: isn't this old spool holder a handy way to organize "junk drawer" stuff? Rubberbands? Clips? Paperclips? Safety Pins? Tape? They all have their own little spots! No shuffling required!
I love that.
Because I am an obsessive-compulsive organizer who has apparently too much time on her hands in her last few weeks of pregnancy...
