Spring Cleaning! What!?

You know how Hawaii doesn't have much of a noticeable season change like the continent? Well growing up, I certainly didn't notice, so spring cleaning didn't mean anything to me back then. But as I got older and started my own family, reading about spring cleaning and getting organized in magazines was a new thing for me because growing up we just cleaned things out as Mom saw fit. Now, if you say 'spring' to me, I'm deciding what things I need to clean and/or discard!
Currently, I'm cleaning my workroom, discarding, giving away, cleaning off plastic container tops etc... I went to PriceBusters and found these collapsible containers and decided to use those instead of the mismatched plastic containers that I have now. I ran into a couple of challenges, one, it's getting costly to change all the containers I want to change, and two, I've had DH driving around the island with me in tow to all the PBs looking for my color choice. It was explained to me by one of the PB clerks that when they get products in, it's shipped as a lot, so they get a whole bunch of colors and styles at once; like opening a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
Anyway, I'm off to visit my SIL in Vegas, hope I find more collapsibles there. My work will still be here waiting for my return (yuk), so I'm not too worried about the mess. Unless of course House Beautiful or Where Women Create sneaks into my house and takes threatening photos to expose my packrat workroom!

  1. I love containers too, I'd love to have all matching containers, all lined up nice and pretty like they do on the organizing shows.

    But I keep telling myself, they have a bigger budget than I do :/
