Can you blame my heart palpitations when I see something like this?
Thus, for the past month I've been squirreling away every little cardboard box that we used. I would cut them down to size, and would tape up the open end as well so that I got two boxes out of the deal.
I cornered my husband into helping me decide what we needed to keep and what we could toss. He didn't want to toss anything, protesting "You can never have too many cords and cables! You never know when one might break and you need a replacement. And I may need to cobble together a gaming system or connect three computers together to a projector." He safely tucked away whatever cables that we didn't use ALL the time into his box full of cords and other computer peripherals. That one is right next to his other box full of RCA cables and speaker wire. I never new such boxes existed in the world until I married my husband. And thank goodness for his geeky ways! As I like to say, "I'm sleeping with my I.T. Guy"
Back to the declutter. I arranged the little boxes into the drawer and neatly wrapped all the cords, and this is the result!
I'm feeling MUCH better now!
