I have a confession!

They say that the first step to getting help is acknowledging that you have a problem. Ok, I have a Container problem. I just keep buying more and more containers, in hopes to get my stuff organized. My family has known about this problem for years, yet no one is willing to get me help :) I guess if it really did keep me organized then it would be working's not. When the container gets full then instead of getting rid of something... I just buy more containers! I feel like I have to confess this to all of you who think I am so organized, my family knows I'm really not. I make huge messes and most of the time, I can't find could be my age or it could be my CONTAINER PROBLEM!
For years we have talked about this issue as a family, every now and then my girls can't take it any more and sit me down, and make me go through all my boxes and donate lots of things. I don't mind doing that if I know someone else could use it. But as soon as I get rid of something...then I find that I need it! I guess my problem is well hidden most of the time, but since Jeff and I were cleaning out our garage this weekend, the PROBLEM came back up again! :(
I am not sure where to get help for this exactly? I really do use most of my things, it is rare for me to buy a gift...I can usually make it out of my stuff ( important stuff ). Oh well, I guess there could be worse things but I feel like I have at least admitted, put it out there and acknowledged it... that is a start right?
Maybe some day I will find someone who just loves to come over and go through my stuff  and will willingly teach me how to store and sort through things. Especially papers, I write my ideas and thoughts on every piece of paper I can get ahold of. I guess that is another problem that I have OK... I have PAPER PROBLEMS! Whew, I am so glad I got that off my chest.

Need to run and keep trying to sort through more stuff, because guess what I got this weekend? More containers! :) I hid them from Jeff at first, then I realized that I really had a problem ( if I was hiding things). When we talked about MY PROBLEM on our Date Night, Jeff reminded me of how bad my problem is....yet he figured that me buying a couple more $6.99 containers was .... cheaper than counseling! :) So glad we worked that one out, I feel better now! :)
Good night dear friends!
