"For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned."
Oh the time I've wasted searching for that one piece of paper I didn't file right away, or that craft item I purchased and didn't put in my craft closet!
Organization is on my brain this week as I'm co-hosting a Bridal Shower for a very special someone here in my home this Friday evening. My desk is piled high and deep! Well, not as high and deep as week before last! I remember now that I hurriedly shoved some papers and catalogues in a drawer when I heard someone was coming over! Now that stack is still in that drawer and I have a new, fresh stack of paperwork to contend with crowding my mind this week. I'm not the type to normally hide and shove items in closets and drawers. I'm a firm believer of EVERYTHING MUST HAVE AN ASSIGNED PLACE AND EVERYONE MUST RETURN EVERYTHING TO ITS PLACE. I have some pretty shelves I want hung and some pictures I need to arrange but being the perfectionist that I am, (I'd like to be able to type "Recovered Perfectionist" here!) I leave stuff out, lying in a corner until I can put it in its proper place. I know it doesn't sound very perfectionistic, but if you observe most perfectionists, they are also great procrastinators! We don't want to attempt any projects until we are sure we have time to do them correctly and completely. Therefore, many things go undone, which can make us appear AND FEEL very unorganized! That drawer full of old mail and catalogues is heavy on my mind, so I'm now off to purge it! Maybe then I can sort through this fresh stuff on my desk before Friday night!
