Organizing in the hizzouse*

In CategoryHome Schooling, Navel Gazing

The state of my office is not good. I have so much stuff in here – knitting stuff, home schooling stuff, craft stuff, stuff to occupy the kids for one freaking minute so I can check my email…it’s driving me nuts. I have been trying to organize it, but it feels like I am just shuttling stuff from one corner to another and then back again. However, I am a big believer that if I only had just the right basket, my house would magically transform itself into a clutter-free picture of organization…

So, in an effort to corral the all the crayons, markers, alphabet magnets, stickers, etc. that are all over the place around here, I surfed the internets until I found these

They are fantastic. AND they got here in less than twenty-four hours! I order a lot of stuff off the internet. A LOT. I might be single-handedly keeping Amazon afloat. I don’t think I have ever received something that quickly. 

Check the cuteness:

All lined up:

Could they BE cuter?

* This blog post title clearly a feeble attempt to communicate my hipness. Who even says “hip” anymore? I probably could have snapped my fingers and said “Groovy, Daddy-O” and gotten the same result. Which is that it is painfully obvious No One Hip Lives Here.

    SO cute! I have an organizational tool fetish, I’m not gonna lie. I totally know where you’re coming from.

    Hey, are you on Twitter? Tried to look you up but couldn’t find you. If not, git yo’ ass on there. That’s an order!

    I don’t know from the Twitter. Plus also, I have one of those pay-as-you-go cell phones, and I don’t know if I want to pay twenty cents to read about the kind of bagel Ashton Kutcher had this morning.

    Give me more reasons why I should try it, dude.

    Well, I must be just as un-cool as you, because I saw your title on someone else’s blog and clicked right over here! 😉

    Oh, Deb. Twitter is on the interwebs, not just phones. I’m sorry you have a pay-as-you-go, because I give GREAT text and was just thinking that we should start up that sort of relationship, but you know, whatever. My feelings aren’t hurt or anything.
