I like things sorted, classified, ordered. I like to know where to put things, and where to find them. Amazingly enough, I have found a like-minded partner in Steve. Early in our wedded life, when we were so broke that we sometimes sold books in order to pay for the groceries when funds ran low between paycheques, we got very excited about buying colour-coded hanging files and tabs, so we could organize the filing cabinet that we painted bright red.
What? Well, of course we still have it. And of course, it's still colour-coded.
Today, while I was at work, Steve had the day "off" - which means, he worked plenty hard on stuff around the house. Top of his list: putting drawers into the kitchen pantry. This pantry was narrow and deep and virtually impossible to find anything in, beyond the first couple of cans or boxes. It made making a grocery list very hit-and-miss.
But now? Look!
|Well, I'll be. He's labelled the drawers.|
