Jam jars with red gingham-print lids. I can’t resist them. They’re perfect for holding all my erasers.
Wait a second…
Why would I own so many erasers?
If I don’t need something, then I don’t need to container-ize it, or label it, or make a list about it. Sometimes I forget that when I see pretty editorial pictures.
It’s organizational eye candy.
If you’re feeling like your efforts to organize aren’t really paying off, try looking for ideas that solve a problem, not just look pretty or add to your possessions. Too many containers can make a home feel…bloated. (I’m trying, but I can’t think of a better word.)
A lot of people wonder, “When will I finally be organized?” and “When will I be de-cluttered?” It’s a process that is ongoing. You’re never really through, but one sign that you’re close is when you start giving away your old containers that you don’t need anymore.
