What I'm Not

So I went to the store yesterday with my Mom.  One of those big warehouse stores where people with big families shop so they can buy in bulk and save some cash.  I do not have a big family, and in my house it is a miracle if a 1/2 gallon of milk gets used before it expires.  But I went with my Mom anyway, because she asked me to and sometimes I like to do things to keep up the pretense that I am a good daughter.  One of the things I will buy at these warehouse stores, besides larger than normal bottles of alcohol, are magazines.  They are discounted, you see, so I can buy two or three or seven and not feel too bad about it.  Unfortunately, I already had a lot of the magazines that they were selling, but I had to buy something, and that's when I saw this.
This kind of magazine speaks to me, because it is what I want to be.  I want to tackle clutter in every room!  I want to shop smarter and stop paper pileups today!  In other words, I really, really, really want to be organized.  I want a place for everything and everything in its place.  And I try.  I really do.  Last week (and thankfully this week too) we are on spring break.  Slowly but surely I have been cleaning my house.  And by cleaning I mean making piles of junk that are now residing in my hallway.
Anyway, I wish I could be more organized, and have neat little gadgets and things for all of our stuff.  I can't see that actually happening any time in the near future, but one should always have a goal, right?  In the meantime, I will content myself to look at other people's beautifully organized spaces.  Here are some of my favorites.

I love that last picture.  Is it weird to say I even love that toilet?  As far as toilets go, it's pretty, don't you think?
Well, we are off to Disneyland today.  Hopefully.  I could really use a dole whip!  You know, to celebrate all this spring cleaning that I've been doing.

  1. These spaces are gorgeous! Love the organized inspiration!

  2. I get a little tingle whenever I see a well-organized space! As a kid clutter was practically my middle name, but as I got older, I realized how much better I felt when everything was in its place. Luckily John and I are on the same page, since our little home can't take too much!
