An Inconvenient Truth

Raft3r is an obsessive compulsive.

That’s my confession for the day.

My things are well organized. All of them are arranged by color, by category, by collection, and by date. 

Hit me in the head. I’m insane. I know.

Raft3r’s DVD and CD collections used to be displayed in a mounted wall cabinet. Since I am a neat freak, I normally spend half of my weekend dusting off my collections. I lived a sad life back then.

That ended when I decided to just place all my DVDs in cardboard boxes. Properly labeled and categorized, but of course. 

But cardboard boxes rot and even their contents can get damaged. So Raft3r took to the mall and found a better alternative.

I replaced my cardboard boxes with plastic ones. I found these really cool recyclable containers. They are also great space savers since you can stack them up. Raft3r bought more than a dozen.

During my weekly grocery at Walmart, I saw my acid free storage boxes on sale! Raft3r wanted to buy more since they are sold much cheaper here.

The only thing that stopped me from purchasing these babies is the travel baggage limitation. Damn those 50 pound restriction on luggages.

While you're arranging stuff in your recyclable box, leave room for your VCO bars and bottles. I've reserved some for you already:)

sonnet's, Pre-ordered na agad? Hehe

Raft3r I know exactly what you mean...I've spent so much money on organizing boxes and shelves and containers it isn't even funny! (and I hang my clothes according to type, style, and color too)

unfortunately, I'm too lazy to stay neat for long...LOL!!

My dear lola used to nag us with this line: A place for everything and everything in its place. Sounds like an OC motto to live by.
