It Started with a Container….


Today I opened one of my kitchen cupboards and a plastic container fell on me. You know, the reuasble containers that like to get messed up so much?! As I recalled, this same plastic container fell on me yesterday. So, I decided to re-stack and re-arrange the plastic bowls and containers. And that’s how it started.

The plastic bowls led to all of that cupboards’ contents – Which led to the cupboard next to it. I then decided that I could store some of my large appliances that I used mainly for Winter. That led me to another cupboard – which resulted in the pantry being next.

Before I knew it, my entire kitchen was disheveled, anything and everything on kitchen counters and on the floor. It didn’t stop there though. After all, if I was to store some appliances in my basement laundry room, I needed to make room in that space. But that meant moving the board games to another area. Which led to off-season shoes and jackets.

PlasticAnd so on. And so forth.

2 garbage bags of trash and another 2 for donations.

Who would have thought that one little plastic container would perpetuate an entire day’s worth of cleaning and organizing of a good portion of my house? An entire day! When all was said and done I went back to the original cupboard and threw that cursed plastic container in the garbage. Take That!

  6. Oh my goodness… I have the same crazy gene! One small thing turns into a huge project that takes up the whole day! At least for the next little while you’ll be able to get enormous satisfaction from opening your kitchen cupboards and seeing how nice they look… and you’re safe from attacking containers!

  7. A little off topic, but I hope some of your trash was able to make its way into the recycling bin instead? =)

  9. I have tried tackling the container/tupperware cupboard. It only works and lasts if every single container and lid and bowl is in there. When some are in the lunch boxes, dishwasher and fridge, chaos resumes. It is a full 5 minutes of accomplishment though 😉
