Here we are again with little content and many beautiful excuses as to why. I’d like to blame my recent move but it’s been months at this point. I will say that I have several potential articles of organizational advice that move beyond the usual well-meaning but frankly irritating suggestions to get rid of anything you haven’t worn in six months, etc. But I’ve bored myself just typing the summary, let alone an entire post.
Plus, I’ve pretty much mastered procrastination in unpacking by way of perfectionism. This goes a something like: if I don’t have the exact most efficient layout for my drawers then I can’t possibly put anything in them, so why don’t I wait a week to see which one feels the most intuitive when reaching for that fork? And then I just so happen to have all manner of disposable forks at the ready, easily avoiding commitment to any specific drawer. Then I scour minimalist blogs for clever, practical tips, followed by design blogs for artistic inspiration and then it’s on to online shopping for the right tools. Eventually my eyesight blurs and I abandon whichever vintage Ebay listing I was watching, too tired to unwrap silverware. And now reaching into the box that holds all the forks has become sadly intuitive, so there’s that.
