Depression comes in many shapes and forms.
In all of its forms, it’s a beast that wants to take over your life. This is not a fairytale cartoon. You can’t just kiss this booboo.
The beast is not waiting for a rose petal to fall so that life will return in full glory. Sadly, depressed people often make their spaces into dark cocoons. Closing the blinds. Letting dust gather. Piles of put off decisions gather. This might make the sufferer feel better but… Continue reading
Organizing our precious memorabilia can be a nightmare. Between knowing what to save, how to save it and who it was from. You can find yourself swimming in a sea of emotions. This can make dealing with our memorabilia very stressful.
Spoiler Alert: LOTS -possibly even your sex life… (I’ll put a link here for that special post – I have to “cough” research some more first…)
Everywhere you look there are things that you have but you don’t really use them anymore. Why are they still there? Why can’t you just give them away or throw them away?
While I think it’s magical to toss junk to the curb, there are plenty of items that are quite necessary in today’s world we must keep.
Twist ties, cable ties, zip ties, paperclips,husbands, that penny that you picked up that special time with so and so.
You get the idea.
You of course have it under control. You’re a brilliant human being who understands everything has a place and you know where it is. Your problem is that you live with other human beings who expect you to find that place for every single little item to walk the face of the earth.
Sadly we can’t just hug these items, thank them, and toss them in the trash. So we do the next best thing we put them in the drawer of delayed decisions. Also known as…. (sad trumpet sound – wa wa wa)…. the junk drawer. The drawer with batteries and that last stick of gum.
Yeah, let’s do something about it.
I promise you’ll feel super human or at very least productive. I’d make us all t-shirts, “I cleaned my junk drawer and it changed my life” but I’m not sure it will catch on.
No matter, you’ve got this.
To start, watch the video linked below.
Gather up your choice of supplies. Either the over the door organizer, the cereal boxes or ice cube trays. Then toss your junk on the counter and go!
The over the door organizer can easily be hidden in a pantry or attached garage if your junk drawer is located in the kitchen. Hang it with nails or 3m hooks instead of the provided over the door hangers to get it to lay flat right where you want it.
Use the ice cube trays in the drawer or just as a handy dandy tray for a project. You’ll look like a genius doing it. Smile and feel magical, accepting compliments. You’ve got this!
Look back on what you’ve accomplished and realize that not once did you need to thank your batteries for the service they provide.
