“If a cluttered desk is sign of a cluttered mind, what, then, is an EMPTY desk sign of?”
Eh, eh?! An EMPTY MIND! HA!
And thus I stay happily contended in my disarray.
But you know what? There is something particularly unthrifty and complicated about mess. Having to buy more balloons simply because you can’t find your existing 5 million. Spending 6 minutes every morning foraging for bobby pins to hold your quiff together.
A Thrifty Mrs explains the importance of having your every day things accesible and your rarer things tucked away.
Taking this principle I found a better place for the pens (er, the desk drawer?) and the coins. I got rid of makeup I will never touch and divided up make up, jewelry and hair stuff into seperate tins.
In two tea cups I placed the bobby pins and hair clips and earrings I wear most days, and in my box I placed bigger things I need every day like deodrant and my hair brush.
I realise probably none of you struggle with mess like this (and I am even a bit embarrased blogging my mess) but I am pretty stoked with this new organisation marlarky. I feel quite evangelical about it (hence the blog!)
