I have been on Pinterest . . . and neglecting all you wonderful readers. Man, I didn't expect it to be so dang addicting. Did you?
One of the things I saw on Pinterest that I am definitely doing is this!! I know, right? I have an entire Rubbermaid bin full of a tangled mess of cables that I don't even know what half of them are for . . . but this way they will be accessible and organized and not like a snake's nest.
I am so geared up to re-organize my house!
That's just one of the things . . . it didn't help that I watched almost a whole marathon of Hoarders - Buried Alive, while we were off from work. That show makes me want to throw things away for sure.
I started looking at my book shelves and realizing that I didn't have any more room for movies. We are HUGE movie fans (we have over 800 DVD's and BluRay's). So finding a place for all of them is a challenge.
Santa suggested that we box them up and if you wanted to watch one, you could just go to that box and get the movie you wanted. However, I realized we pull and watch movies from this library quite often. So instead I decided to get rid of all the books (covered in dust) on my shelves to make room for the movies.
The books are not being accessed, as I said they were all covered with dust. What with the iPad, Santa reads and downloads to it instead of pulling the actual books. So I dumped them all out of the shelves and got rid of them.
(*whispers* she's a book burner)
I didn't burn them.
Come on people. I did trash some of the really stupid ones . . .like Joel Olstein and Kevin Trudeau . . . I'm not passing garbage on to my friends. . . how cruel?
The good ones ie: Santa's entire Stephen King library, we donated to one of the girls in the office. She loves to read, but more importantly her mother is on dialysis and likes to read while she has to wait for her treatments. So most of them are going to a very good cause.
More to come on my progress as this will be an ongoing project. . . are you reorganizing after Christmas? I would love to hear your tips and tricks.
