Big Old Fat F on the First day
Target had one for 70% off, cool deal, it was worth the $5.29. But you see I needed more than one, in fact I figured I would need 5 or maybe 6. Lowe's home improvement is in the same shopping center, better check it out. Nope they were sold out. Home depot is less than a block away. Struck out again. I was on a mission at this point. On to Wally world, PAY DIRT!!! Six wreath holders were loaded in the cart. I did at least use a $25.00 gift card for this purchase but still.....
OK so I fell off the wagon. I dropped the pass. Missed the pop fly. Threw a gutter ball. Missed the basket. But I am not out of the game. No way am I going to give up. Tomorrow is a new day Scarlett, time to try again.
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this purchase!!! Tomorrow I will be crawling up in the attic to pull out all of those wreaths taking up room and being abused by whatever gets thrown on them during the year. You see one of the many things on my "bucket" list this year is to gut the attic. Cleaning up and or organizing ain't gonna cut it anymore. Our attic fan blew out this summer. Hubby can't repair/replace it with all that is piled up there. We need to add more insulation to the attic, again you gotta be able to get in the attic before you can make those upgrades. Today's purchase is my first step on the attic project. Once the wreaths are in their cool new containers they can be labeled then stored in the garage.
What is it about organizing that makes me giddy? Each and every store I was in and out of today searching for the durn wreath holders had the most amazing displays of organizing containers. Every size, shape, and color. From plastic, to baskets, colorful file folders, planners, and calenders. Be still my heart. I walked away. OK I did look over my shoulder a time or two, the wheels were spinning but I did walk away.
Anyone else get a little bit crazy this time of year wanting to have a place for everything and everything in it's place? I tell you my OCD kicks in big time come January 1. I didn't get very far today on the FMQ for Tyler's quilt but tomorrow...Well tomorrow is a new day. I have until 6:00PM to surprise our big little man.
