Little Boxes Made of Ticky Tacky

I've got my life all sorted out.  Not really, but I'd like to start pretending so. 

Wouldn't it be great if you could sort your life into neat boxes?  Not your everyday life, but the parts of your life that creep up regularly, but not often enough to warrant a spot on your bedside table.  

I'm going to sort my life into boxes.  I've already made a list of all the boxes I'll need:
  1. box for jewelry 
  2. box for medical records
  3. box for cards, letters, etc. - received
  4. box for stationery, cards to be sent, stamps, address book, etc.
  5. box for anthropology, research ideas, articles of interest, grad schools, etc.
  6. box for college stuff, papers, grades, etc.
  7. box for random keepsake items
  8. box for inspirational tags from my tea bags and beer caps from Magic Hat beer
  9. box for bank or financial related bidness
  10. box for receipts
  11. box for purses, bags, containers
  12. box for electronic items, cords, warrantees, etc.
  13. box for things in limbo
I should probably go ahead and get some boxes for: 

a) life goals - ignored, neglected 
b) lists - crumpled up, thrown away, etc.


  1. If you have any leftover empty boxes, send them my way.

  2. My neglected life goals box is more like a moving crate.
