The Crazy Suburban Mom: The Purse Monster

The Purse Monster

Last week I posted Too Dirty for Words, a post about what works and what doesn't around here, organizationally speaking.  I found  most things continue not working  no matter how many times I reboot them but two things are always organized, my utensil drawer and key chain station.

My plan was to take small areas, assess why they don't work and implement something that will work forever and ever.  I reorganized my purse first since it's a daily pain and I learned something important after tackling the purse monster.

P.S. I even changed purses thinking maybe it was the purse and not me (It's so much easier to put the blame on inanimate objects) but in 24 hours all the neat little pouches were unzipped and empty;   the contents strewn with all the organization of a dollar store clearance bin... And that's when it hit me; I don't put anything away.  Not  in my purse, not anywhere.  

I worked this theory hard, concentrating on replacing things and after a week,  my purse is still in good shape.

Which is monumental.

  I'm going expand this theory beyond the walls of my purse and this week my plan is to concentrate on putting EVERYTHING away after I'm done with it.  

My how to be neat rules:

1.  If something isn't working, take the time to assess why before organizing it.
2.  Put things back where they came from.
