My Kind of Organization

OMG! I just found this article on the internet and was simultaneously thrilled and shocked. This guy must have OCD (yeah, takes one to know one) or no children. I no longer have any Legos in my house, but I so could have done this when I did. However, I would NEVER, EVER let the kids play with them ever again! Not if I put that much effort into organizing them.

I do, however, love plastic ziploc bags for organizing toys. I can separate toys into baggies like no one else. Then all you have to do to keep them neat is to place the baggies into neat little stackable bins. The hardest part about it all is that the children don't quite seem to "get" the concept of keeping their toys nice and neatly organized. Especially that Katie. She keeps unalphabetizing her books, and I can't tell you how many times I've put her tea set back onto the tray the way it's supposed to be.

I saw this on my "goody blog" link. A man with way too much time on his hands.

OH. MY. GOSH. How do you have time to do something like that? I used to have complete OCD when it came to the kids' toys. Every night, I would sort them out and make sure all the pieces were in the right places... And then one day, I realized that I was slowly going crazy. I was obsessed. So I just quit altogether. I now throw it all in a bin and walk away. It still bugs me, but I just have to tell myself to walk away.

Ahhh! I love it. That kind of organization makes my heart go pitter patter! Thank god I don't have lego's around here to have to worry about.

You sound like me Melodie...my husband complains because I'm always following him through the house organizing behind him. Even stuff he lays on the counter gets straightened before he moves two feet away.
