If you’ve lived with me the phrase “clean your room” is one you probably don’t want to utter, unless you want my room to look like a bombs hit it before it gets clean. My idea of cleaning a room is to pull everything out and sort through it, then pack it away neatly… effectively making it look like I threw a tantrum at being asked to clean up. The picture on the left speaks a thousand words.
Recently I moved house, and I didnt have as much space as before. I did, however, manage to tidy some things and have a little fun with it…
This is my clean closet now. Beforehand all of my things were just tossed into the crates willy nilly, and I had six more boxes of stuff. I’ve eliminated four boxes, and 2 crates, and pretty much organised everything else. I still have some sorting to do yet but it’s a lot neater and more organised.
This picture cuts out my school bag and the HUGE suitcase I’m using to put socks and things in until I get a chest of drawers, but it shows how awesomely my stuff is stacked!
This picture is a close up. My labeling may be a little silly, but it made it a lot of fun and I worked faster so I could write a smartassed comment on a piece of tape and put it on the box…so I think it was quite an effective way to label things. I also know what’s in each one, so it’s not like they’re “mislabeled” ;). I’ll explain the labels below:
I wish I were a tub: Junk I need to sort out.
Puter Crap: Basically exactly what it says, games, software, CDs, USBs, peripherals, etc, etc.
Medical Supplies: (In case of: medical emergency, apocolypse, boo boo’s, zombie invasion, and other non listed events) Has everything from band aids to heat packs and toiletries.
This tub feels so empty: An empty tub.
Art Crap: All of my art supplies.
I lost this tape for a whole week: Stuff I have to keep but can’t really sort. IE: Fabric and teddies.
BunnyRabbitSex Crap: Everything for my website BunnyRabbitSex.com, from merchandise to competition prizes.
And I almost died!: Stuff I have to sort through.
School Crap: all of my school assignments that I’m saving. I’m going to make a portfolio of the good ones so I can always look back :).
Fish Tank + Nintendo: Since I can’t use either in my new place yet, they’re both together in a box. Normally though, I’d have a fish tank box, and an electronics box, which would also fix the I almost died! box right up!
I REALLY LOVE THIS TAPE!/This label isn’t very helpful: Practically empty, this just has some things I need to ship to my mother. She’s too stingy to send me money 😉 (Kidding mum, I love you!)
