Getting Organized

My papers have been sprawling disobediently over my desk along with clothing spilling out of closets so I went to the Container Store in downtown Walnut Creek today. I wanted to see what containers were available and also get ideas for better storage.

Wow, that store is such a temptation! Clean, bright, and chock-full of containers of all sizes in fun colors, not just the typical white or black.

It might have been better if I’d shopped online rather than going in person because I think I spent more money this way. Not to mention time… I wandered from aisle to aisle, pondering a container here and another there, even retracing my steps a few times to reconsider.
