I am so excited to be inspiring some of my friends and readers to be more organized. Check out the recent comment by the elusive “An Elf” on this post. By the way, Elf, I’m 99% sure I know who you are…but keep leaving clues in your comments, I do enjoy a good riddle.
Another case in point: this morning had potential to be a totally crappy Monday. I haven’t settled into a good groove yet with this whole working mom thing, which is tiring and stressful (more to come on that later this week though), and I was wondering how I was going to get through the day, let alone the rest of the week. But my friend and co-worker LBR cheered me right up when she said Keep It Neat inspired her (and her husband) to do a kitchen pantry clean-up and reorganization project over the weekend. They even went to The Container Store to get fun new storage containers. I got so excited just thinking about them purging old stuff and organizing the rest into nice neat rows, and I don’t even have a clue what her kitchen looks like! It made my cranky morning much more tolerable. And the fun didn’t stop there. Later in the day LBR told me that her husband called, and I quote her from intercompany IM, “he said he was feeling a little stressed at work, but when he thought of our newly arranged cabinet, he felt a lot better.” And that’s coming from a dude. Love it.
