There are so many factors in life you can't control and that bothers me.. I am bit OCD when it comes to this. Not day to day plans, not even what we are eating but more organisation and planning.
I concentrate on fitting in exercise, work and looking after the house and my family every day.
I need to use every moment of my day to the best of its abilities so wasted time faffing around looking for things I have lost annoys me. Knowing I had an ingredient for a recipe but couldn't find it in the pantry would drive me potty. Having to find everything for my kids when they can easily get it themselves?.. well that is a constant battle for all of us BUT I often win as if I can direct them to an exact spot I can stick to my guns and off they go.. Why is that? Because I am mega organised.
Its simple and easy to do and just comes down to storage and placement.. My local Officeworks is about 100m's from my local Vinnies and between the two I have everything I need to mix old with new and keep things sorted.
My house can get trashed and messy but at the end of the
day it all goes back in set places and I can rest knowing order is
restored and that makes me feel good.
Later in the week I will show you how I did my pantry as it is the one place people always comment on and I dare you to try and do the same.. It is sooo rewarding (and actually fun)..
I suppose if I show you my "anything spare" draw in the kitchen you will get where I am heading..
tell me I am not alone? share with me your OCD'ness (is that a word?)..
