I'm in an organizing mood lately - at home and at work. I'm certain it will dissipate, just like all the previous organizing moods have, before I get things organized.

Whenever I'm in an organizing mood I eventually stop because I reach the same conclusion every time - I don't have enough room to organize my things. I can hear those of you who are organized folks getting ready to hit those keys to tell me to throw things away.

Yes, I have not used my large stock pot to make soup in the past year. However, I don't want to have to go buy another one when I do want to use it. I don't understand that at all. It seems ridiculous to me - wasteful of money, resources, etc.

I know the one year rule. I just don't agree with it. In fact, I think it's insane to keep discarding things and then repurchasing them because of some arbitrary flip of the calendar.

So, here I sit with too much stuff in too little space. I wish I had a solution, but I don't. Other than I need a bigger house.
