Organization Swoonfest

7.16.2014
So tell me if this scenario has ever happened to you.

You have an extremely long day at work. You are dead-dog tired.

You dream about the moment 4:59 ticks to 5:00 to pack up and head home.

On your way home all you can think about is face-planting into your fluffy ocean of pillows.

You agree to forget the laundry, the dishes, the clutter.

As you unload your dirty dishes into the sink you see the pile is getting high and say, "okay, well maybe just one dish... just one. I don't want this quinoa to grow into a solid rock formation onto my plate of course. It's necessary".

And one dish turns into two...

Then before you know it you are in a cleaning frenzy like your husband just came home and told you your in-laws are coming to stay the weekend.

Everything in your pantry is pulled out, purged and reorganized. The tupperware cabinet you couldn't open before without ending up under a pile of lids is now perfectly straightened out and each item has a home. Your linens are folded and stacked instead of tossed into a drawer. And you find your teaspoon measuring cup you've been looking for for months.

Has this happened to you?

I had no time to take pictures before the madness began because I didn't even know it happened before I was knee deep. And even if I did, I wouldn't have stopped. This frenzy happens once in a blue moon so I have to take advantage while I can. The minute Jon saw me he groaned and walked away. Not because he hates when I organize, but because he will now have to re-learn the kitchen cabinets and drawers all over again. And all the husbands in the world said, "amen!".

Now for a bubble bath!

The junk drawer is now clutter-free!

It's nothing glamorous, but it's home and it's clean.

  1. Haha - love it! Yes, I think this is something that is just part of being a woman and especially a wife that "nests". Sometimes you have to purge and reorganize your life (or pantry or whatever!). Now go relax... you've earned it!!

  6. Wow! Super impressed with your organization skills (and let's be honest, pretty jealous of your perfectly neat utensil drawer). I tend to do the exact opposite when I'm tired, haha!

  11. Go you! Hah this totally happened last night. Pulling a measuring cup out of the drawer of random cooking tools turned into pulling everything in the drawer out, washing all of the organizers, drying them, wiping out the drawer, then putting everything back into their own little places. Needles to say, dinner was a little late ha.

  16. I go on organizing sprees periodically--it's relaxing in a way!

  17. I have so been there! It can be oddly relaxing, and once you're in the cleaning zone you just want everything to be perfect!
