|As seen in my master closet.|
|A peek inside.|
This is part of my collection of reusable bags - the rest are in the trunk of my vehicle so that I have them on hand for the grocery store. They look very innocent, don't they? Many times I find them to be an excellent organizational tool.
|This bag stays packed and stored in the master closet or laundry room.|
This bag may be unlovely, but for $0.10 at a yard sale I find it to be the perfect thing to keep towels, bathing suits, shampoo, etc. corralled in one place for my youngest's swim lessons.
|A well used and much loved storage solution in our house.|
But there is an insidious side to my love of - and reliance on - bags. They can be found hanging all around my house and, in the spirit of being honest in this space about what I am working on, here are some photos that I took this morning.
|Bag of random things (knitting, books, opera glasses from our last trip to the theater, etc.) hanging on the office door.|
|A bag of stuff that I am giving away to a specific person from my master closet clean up and a child's coat that needs to be hung up in the coat closet - this is hanging on my linen closet door in the hallway.|
|This one is really embarrassing. It is a bag full of toiletries and random crap waiting to be put away from a trip in January. This is hanging on the closet door in my bathroom.|
|Remember that box of stuff that I mentioned from my closet clean up needing to be dealt with? Well, here it sits - with a bag full of stuff on top, of course - untouched and at the end of my bed four days later.|
|In my daughter's room.|
Does anyone else struggle with tucking stuff away for later like this? What has helped you break the habit?
