Finding work for idle hands: making, baking and more.

Getting organised December 29, 2008

I like to get the house in order before the new year starts – I feel a bit better about things if I know there’s no clutter lurking around the place. Clearing the clutter is not necessarily a good excuse to buy new storage gadgets, but sometimes having a pretty shiny place to file things in makes the difference… and so I’ve been enjoying the Independent’s guide to the 50 best storage ideas. It highlights a few UK-based shops to try, which is helpful – when I’ve been in the US and visited places like Storables and the Container Store I’m always disappointed that there’s no easy way of bringing all those wonderful goodies home…

    Thanks for those links. I’ve already got my eye on a few things which could help us be a bit more organised.

    I’ve found a few things too – don’t spend too much! (Or perhaps we should – we can justify our shopping now in terms of ‘keeping the economy afloat’. Any excuse works for me!)
