Containery Goodness

in Home, Organization

I interrupt your regularly scheduled blog with a little maniacal organization and a massive purge unlike any other in Runner Susan history. This is what travel does to me, I can’t help it – a little late to call it spring cleaning – perhaps mental breakdown would be more accurate – but late is better than never, I reckon.

I’d post the before pictures but some might say they look the same as the after – I assure you there is a difference, maybe not in neatness but in quantity. It’s called minimalizing for Napa.

And yes, I own TWO shiny red bags – it’s my birthright as a woman. Bite me.

Coming soon the new and improved running closet and the ever-so-thankless office reorganization.

I think your sister is trying to tell you something. I have never thought to put my make up in a drawer – hmmm now you have me thinking. Nothing feels as good as getting your shit organized.

And somehow I thought this post would be about flowers… in pots.

I saw an empty spot in the shoe section next to some brown sandals – time to go shopping!

Oh Miss Susan. Why don’t you wait to downsize until *after* you move to Napa? Then I could get your castoffs! :)

Nice 9 miler Susan!

When you’ve finished over there you can start on my house. Those 5 rolls of paper towels are telling me something.

I’m definitely jealous. All that room! I think your pantry is bigger than my apartment.
Of course, parting with some of race t-shirts would probably go a long way to making room for my wardrobe…

I love the shoe wall…most of mine are in a heap on the floor…not good, not good at all!

I do love those velvet hangars that nothing slips off of. They are THE BEST INVENTION EVAH!

Nothing quite like having more than one of everything.

I’m drooling. I’ll take anything that you don’t want.

I’m about to fire my nanny. Neither my pantry nor my closet look anywhere close to being that organized!
