My special organized chaos

Do you ever look around your home and wonder what the definition of organized chaos is? Ah yes the, I put my keys down somewhere and they can be in one of four places. You see, I'm at the other end of the spectrum because my things seem to always have an exact place. In fact I can tell you right now where my ten-year-old birthday gift is. Scary huh? Isn't that my own kind of organized chaos?

If your having trouble getting organized with small spaces try getting this fab book Sorted! It has tons of colorful ideas especially if you hate organization. Bite your tongue sweetie!

I love how these rooms have a simplicity of chaos. They still have a homey feel without it feeling messy.


I'm sure this models closet at home doesn't look like this, but isn't this closet every woman's fantasy?

Have you ever been to The Container Store? I heard the angels singing in my head as I roamed the aisles filled with boxes, hangers, sock boxes, hampers and toiletry bags. Oh a girl can dream can't she? This really is a sickness!

I feel like this room is a little too contained. Wait is there such a thing?





And this is what a bedside table usually turns into, but what happens if company comes over? Well, who doesn't shove everything into a drawer!

Why do I suddenly feel the need to go and clean up a little? Did you enjoy my organized chaos examples and were you nodding your head while looking at the pictures? I can't wait to read your comments about if keeping a neat house is important to you. Enjoy your day sweetie!

I'm definitely going to have to check out that book. I remember before kitties and puppies my place was always spotless. Now even though I live alone, I seem to always have things out of place. Ugh!

Dollface: Me too sweetie! You'll have to send me a picture xoxo

Heather: Ah yes animals do change the game, but their apart of the family for sure. Thank you for your comment :)

this book sounds awesome. and I LOVE the closet, LOVE the closet!! I have to have things organized, but I usually only do it very late at night, when I can't sleep or ten minutes before company arrives. Otherwise, I just let things go until it annoys me, and that mostly happens because I got sleep

Laura said...

Cafe Fashionista: Let me know if you like it!

Laura said...

Namine: I love your honesty sweetie, And i too always seem to be cleaning up late at night. No wonder I can't sleep :)

The Container Store has always been my own personal Mecca. In fact, you just reminded me that I need to go tomorrow! (The key will be to spend no more than I need to.) I love the organized chaos look, but I've discovered that the only place I can really handle it is with books -- the rest needs to be nice and need, but that's just me. And that book? I'm so tempted to buy it.
