It’s rare that a piece of furniture can excite me this much. But my card catalog has really made organizing so many things so much better.
I thought that after I put the yarn and jewelry in it, it’d be a while until I found a use for all those empty drawers. But then the other day, I realized it’d be the perfect place for my nail polish.
In the last month, I’ve accumulated a lot more nail polish because of a Christmas gift and also a great sale on Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. I kept it all in a toiletry bag in the linen closet and when I went to polish my nails, which I try to do weekly, I’d dump the bag and pick through the colors.
But not anymore. I can see it all clearly lined up. I just had to remove the inserts I made for the drawers so they fit and there is plenty room for more in those two drawers.
I still have plenty of empty drawers and I’ll keep thinking of ways to organize. It’s really nice how something so simple can make me so happy.
As for those goals I set up last year, I’m never doing that again. Two of the three things on my needles are still on my needles but I am not ready to frog them just yet. And of the four items I wanted to knit, I managed to do one of them twice. I’m much better at deciding as I go because what I want and who gets gifts sort of gets decided along the way.
