So I forked over the deposit this weekend on the new apartment. Hooray! Only one thing left to do now: move into it! Since I'm sitting pretty for at least a few more days, I'm not in a huge hurry to move. Especially considering I just moved. It's a highly unappealing thought to consider having to carry around all those boxes that are so neatly stacked and stored right now.

You see, in case anyone forgot, the new place is small. I've started calling it Smallville. But it's cute and clean and a great fit! Just the right size for me, but NOT the right size for me and any junk I've been lugging from place to place for three years. So, I think what I'll do is plan to get my big items in first: bed, dresser, TV, etc so at least I can stay there. Then, I need to weed through the rest. I'm planning to throw stuff away, take stuff home with me and as I already mentioned, donate stuff as well. (Side note: when I got to my car after my event last night, the bar with my hanging clothes had fallen down. There weren't even that many clothes hanging on it! I don't get it! That makes two bars that have fallen down as a result of my hanging clothes. Terrible.) Then, as I weed and sort, I'll move what makes the cut into the new apartment.

Which means that I get to buy stuff to get myself organized! And I don't mean tidy, I mean ORGANIZED. No clutter. I've already visited OrganizedLiving.com, the ContainerStore.com, Organize-It.com and of course Ikea.com to browse for things I want/need.

First step, bed risers. In the mean time, if you have any storage strategies or solutions that work for you, let me know!


  1. Does this mean no more wasps?

  2. Funnily enough, I pointed out a large wasp's nest outside the door. She said she would have her maintenance man take care of it ASAP. Don't think I won't look again when we meet there Friday.

  3. Another great blog - www.unclutterer.com.


Oh goody!
