I have been dying to tell you this story for months. In fact, since March I have been aching to tell everyone what an amazing find I had scored, but the problem was that I had not yet obtained it physically. Then, Victoria wrote this post about her Craigslist find, and I wanted to cry. “It’s not fair! I want to share my amazing coup and I can’t.” So, I waited, because I too had found an amazing wardrobe on Craigslist, but I was not able to pick it up yet.

Someone asked me recently if anyone has ever visited my house twice and found it exactly the same. The answer to that question would be no. Even Douglas rarely comes home to find things the same every day. I like change.

Last weekend I went to Burlington Coat Factory for the first time. Did you know that there are more than coats at Burlington Coat Factory? I had no idea, but I am sure that you, a much more experienced shopper than I, knew that. While my friends were shopping, I wandered the aisles looking at all of the things that tempted me and that I was not going to buy. Then, I saw these.

To maintain organization, it helps if everything has a place. It is necessary to cull your possessions regularly, so that they do not take over your life. I know this, and yet somehow I still end up with this.

Messy bedroom

I sometimes struggle to put everything in its place every day. When I am stressed and tired at the end of the day, I often pile my clothes on the nearest piece of furniture rather than put them away.

Second Bedroom Redesign

My house was so messy by Saturday last week, that I could not believe so little time had passed since the last cleaning. I was particularly dismayed by the state of the second bedroom. Two weeks ago, on Labor Day weekend, my friend Nga came to visit, and the room looked like this.
