I'm here to kick your ass, and you know it, and everybody here knows it, and above all, you deserve it.

I didn't make any resolutions this year other than really trying to organize a bit better and perhaps to use a wallet and stop pulling 20's out of my bra at shops like some deranged Miss Havisham sort of lady.

One of the first things I seem to organize in the new year is toy mess. We have a Thomas the Fricking Tank Engine lover here and they are everywhere. I went to some large office store and picked up these wall mounted plastic holders. (I am sure they are designed to hold brochures and the like, but they work just spiffy for small wooden trains.)






I feel better already. Take that Thomas! Take that Percy!

Ok, this is just brilliant. Never occurred to me and I consider myself the queen of organizing toys! Love this idea. Want to line the walls of our playroom with these things.

Some Kind of Wonderful! Even as a teenager I was horrified by how he spent all of his college money on diamond earrings for a girl that barely noticed him. Not much of a romantic I guess...

I love your org system for the trains! Brilliant!

oh you are so smart!! I too have a house of little tiny crap!! mainly tiny horses, dinosaurs and dolls!!

I love your comment about money down your bra!! I DO THAT TOO!! But I try to remember before I get to the check out.. so I am rummaging around in the isles looking for my money.. I usually do this when I ride my bicycle to the shops and dont want to carry my purse.. cause I seem to have few clothes with pockets.. hmmm maybe I just need some pockets??

Holy bleep, bleep! I can't believe you pulled Some Kind of Wonderful out...I love you! That is a hilarious part....and pulling 20's out of your bra made me laugh so hard and this organization - well all I have to say is thank you for the tip from a woman who is feeling like life is out of control!

Oh the frickin Trains!

I love this idea if I could get the kid to leave his trains in one room! They travel all over the house (and he sleeps with them) with him so I bought him a purse to put them in.

That's right. My son has a purse.
