Unclutter me.

Today over at The Inspired Room they are talking about home organization. This topic truly warms my heart. I will never tire in my pursuit of being more organized at home. It's tricky at times, with two little ones, but it is a worthy endeavor. I am always trying to find warm, loving homes for all of our clutter. Nothing can kill the look of a beautiful room more quickly than piles of stray clutter. And I should know, because I regularly kill the look of my rooms with mounds of un-filed mail, art projects, magazines, you get the point. Boom! You're dead.

One of my most hated forms of clutter is electrical cords. And I have now read that last sentence exactly 13 times and cannot figure out how to make it right. Someone, help!

Back to the hated cords...they are just sooooo un-vintage. Such a reminder to me that I do not live in the 1950's. Such a slap in the face that I am not and will never be Laura Ingalls. Or even Nellie Oleson.

Here's what I have come up with:

Pretty tins, right? I love metal that is painted blue.

Now, open the lids and you'll find my junk in one and Cory's junk in the other. I was nice and gave him the one with the lid that opens without the use of a pry bar. I wasn't recently crowned Queen of the Castle for nothing...

Charge away, baby!

Ah, that's better.

I'm off to the mercantile now! I may even stop and say hello to Doc Baker, while I'm out.
