I took Mini-Me to The Container Store with me yesterday for the first time, and this is pretty much the look on her face the entire time we were there.

Can’t say as I blame her. That’s what I look like when I’m shopping there too. I guess life really is more FUN when you’re organized. Who knew? Unless FUN is one of those wacky professional organizer acronyms like PROCESS. Oh my God, what if FUN means “Frumpy Underachieving Neurotic.” That wouldn’t be good. I don’t think I want to be more of any of those.

Seriously though, that place is amazing. It makes me want to containerize my containers. Even the people who work there are fanatical. You know that crazy “Target Lady” on SNL (as played by the hilarious Kirsten Wiig)? Her twin sister was working the checkout.

Hand to God, the lady who rang up my goodies became partially apoplectic when the customer ahead of me returned a special organizer rack for hangers. HANGERS. She was all: “Oh my GOSH, you’re returning THIS? BUT WHY?!!! I LOVE THIS!” It was kind of cute, actually. I truly enjoy seeing anyone enjoy their job that much. That kind of enthusiasm is just contagious, isn’t it?

By the way, I have an organizer for hangers too… it’s called a closet rod. I guess I’m not as into organizing as I thought I was.

Wishing you abundant enthusiasm and joy, today and everyday!
