Yesterday I was unloading the dishwasher, and while putting away storage containers and lids, I had to pull the lid container off the shelf. The shelf where I keep all the plastic lids is kind of high, and some of the lids are taller than the shelf, which means I kind of have to cram. Plus the container was overstuffed. Which meant by the time I jerked the container off the shelf, about 15 plastic lids fell on my head.
I’d hit the breaking point. My lid dilemma had been going on for months, but I’d ignored it. Being on deadline means I ignore a lot of things that irritate me, but having all those lids fall on my head was the last straw. So I took all the lids out of the container, and removed every plastic container from the cabinet and did a match up. If there was a container without a lid or a lid without a container, I pitched it. No mercy. I threw out a lot. No wonder shit was falling on my head. No wonder my cabinet was a mess. And, where do lids go without a container to attach to, and where do containers disappear to without their lids anyway? Inquiring minds want to know. Now my cabinet–and my stress level–are much happier.
What’s one minor but you know it’s going to be irritating project in your house that you’re dreading, but you know needs to be done? Go ahead…vent to me.
