I’ve decided that I need to get moving on the disaster spaces in the house – namely the sewing room and the basement. They’re a perpetual nagging at the back of my mind. It’s just not acceptable that there are things that I can’t find. As an example, I have absolutely no idea where the tin snips are. I know we have a pair but I have no clue where they’re currently hiding. I realize that I’ve got the rest of my life to futz with the house, but the current state of those spaces is annoyingly unacceptable. I’m not talking about "perfect" or even "done." "Usable" is what I’m aiming for. The ability to root through the clutter and find the thing I want, as opposed to rooting through unopened, not yet unpacked boxes and thereby creating clutter while not finding the thing.
