I'm not an organizer like I thought...

Blogger World, have you read the blog: i heart organizing? 

As you've probably guessed, it's a blog dedicated to organizing. The author provides tips, products, and pictures of her super organized house. Some might find this inspiring; I found it depressing. Below are a couple pictures of her super organized closets. 

Beautiful, huh?

You see, all my life I've always thought of myself as an organizer. I feel that every item has a place, and I like for those items to always be in their place.  For the most part, I keep all items in their place. True, that place may not make sense to you, but it makes perfect sense to me.

I say all this because a few months ago I tackled a closet in my guest room; the prize closet. In my house, I have a closet dedicated to items I buy for presents. This allows me to buy items throughout the year; which in return saves me lots of money. After the holidays, the "prize closet" usually takes a beating and needs to be re-organized. Below is a picture of this year's organizing. 

I'm so embarrassed! 

This is not organized! This is more of a staking approach, and not even a good staking approach!  

If you scroll back up to her pictures, you'll see the difference. 

You see the difference, right?

I see what needs to happen. 
I need to visit a Container Store and buy lots of containers to store all this stuff. 

But then, aren't I just buying more crap? Crap that will soon need to be organized?

Maybe my stack method isn't so bad.

You're not alone dear. You should see my office desk...well you can't because it is covered by all my paperwork. We do the stacking/piling method of organization here. It's really terrible. :p

You bought Monopoly for someone? Um, do me a favor, don't get me anything for my birthday this year ;-)

(Although Boggle would be acceptable.)

Monopoly is a game for all ages!
