I took a picture of some storage shelves downstairs because they need work, obviously, but it brought to mind some comments I wanted to make about my and other people's cleanup habits. I noticed that some people buy a lot of containers so they can just stack everything they have. I'm trying to get to the point where I need fewer containers. I already have a lot of my buying under control. There used to be a time when my favorite place to look in a thrift store was the shelves where all the little ceramic figurines sit. I wanted to have loads for my curio shelves on the wall, and pretty soon I had to put them in those storage containers you see above. I still have a lot but I try to get a couple a year instead of a handful every few days!
Not much progress has been made since my last entry. I forgot that when you move the big things, like furniture, you have to find new places to stack the little things. So now I have that little problem. Not a terrible thing, but I think I know a way to take care of it for the time being. I'm going to have to make use of some of those cardboard boxes I showed you before.
I feel like I shouldn't even be writing here today. My thoughts have been with my friends on the east coast all day. I just wanted to make myself do something just a little bit constructive that I have some control over.
