The first month deals with getting the pesky paper piles pulverized (or filed, whichever you prefer, but pulverized makes for better alliteration).
I've got in mind a certain desk in my house that sits next to my filing cabinet and close to the changing table, and it somehow serves as a catch-all for papers, toys that need batteries, changing table supplies, and everything else that needs a real home. Wish me luck. I'll post before pictures if I can find the camera. :)
Here's what I HATE about organizing things - - - well TWO things I hate about it:
1) The whole process of doing it - - - I could be doing much more meaningful things like watching football or taking a nap.
2) As soon as you get it organized, someone starts piling the same exact kind of stuff right back in that same place - - - so all that effort to organize was just wasted.
If only it would stay organized, right? BTW, you were right; I did not intend to imply that I was going hog wild when I turn 50. Shows you how things can be misconstrued in print!
Keeps -- I hope there is a difference between cleaning (what you said) and organizing (creating a system that makes keeping order easier). Don't laugh if you come over to my house and my system isn't working, though. :)
Linda -- Glad to know I'm not crazy.
Ha ha if you can only find the camera :) I'm always losing the camera CHARGER! Other than that, my husband is OCD about organization, so we're always in check!
There is FOR SURE a difference between cleaning and organizing... I know that because I obsess over one and totally neglect the other (I'm not telling which is which).
