2010 Resolution: Weekly blog updates!!!
My thinking behind this is two-fold. As it currently stands, my mentality about updating is that it should be as much as possible. Yeah. That hasn't happened, and frankly, it needs to change. So that's one thought. The other is that part of what I've been trying to 'force' myself to do more regularly is create a cleaning schedule. It occurred to me earlier this week (when I realized I had not fulfilled my promise of an update) that the schedule should include updating the blog. And since cleaning (to some extent) happens here on a weekly basis, it makes sense that weekly updates are necessary and doable.
So, here's to no more broken promises!
On a lighter note, there was a Target trip today! My Target trips have a tendency to turn up an interesting ratio of 'practical' vs. 'impractical' items with a heaving tendency toward the 'impractical.' But not today! I was inspired while at home for Christmas with my family when my sister received a gift card to The Container Store. Upon perusing their website, I came across dresser drawer dividers/organizers. Now, I had seen something similar to this in an article somewhere (of course now that I'm mentioning it, I can't give credit where it's due!), but small baskets were used.
I immediately thought of my underwear drawer. Anyone else's underwear drawer a disaster? Mine is horrible and stems from a couple problems.
- My dresser drawers are wide, but not deep.
- I have way too many socks (because I never throw old ones away).
- Same problem with underwear.
- I have an aversion to folding undies.
Basket selection? Blech. So it was a good thing my heart wasn't sold on the basket itself. Especially since I found something better. Have you found the itso section of the storage and organization department at Target? If not, you should check it out. Here's what I purchased (photos courtesy of Target):
A clear, itso 'narrow tray' (definitely not orange) for my bras...
Till next time...
