Came up with a Plan yesterday, for getting the house organized, one room at a time. It obligates us to get one room, completely organized, nothing in it that doesn't belong in it, everything in its place, over the course of a week or two, depending on the room. Kitchen will probably be three. We've started with the easiest, the bedroom. Mostly it involves finding a place to put loree's bedside books. We've found a nice, if expensive, modular cube system at ContainerStore, which we'll go try out and buy tomorrow. And a new dog bed has been ordered. Now we just need to dust the top of the dresser, get some crap out from under the bed, empty a laundry basket, and figure out where some of the extra remotes should go.
And we've already made some plans for the bathroom, so that'll probably be next. Best part of the whole Plan is that we don't have to do it all at once, or all in one day, so there's a lot less yelling and stabbing.
There may be stuff to give away at the end of this. Stay tuned to twitter, if you hope to profit by it.
