O.C.D. or Organization ???

The beginning of the end for the Christmas decorations. This is a third of the boxes, not counting the trees, that are packed, labeled and ready to be put into the garage. I ask myself "Why did I spend so much time making the "labels" ?! I even took time to customize the ornament colors to match what is in the boxes. It didn't seem weird to me at the time, and I do like looking the "organized chaos", but wouldn't just the descriptions alone be good enough? Oh well, I enjoyed making the dumb labels and I guess that is all there is to it.

I think your OCD is endearing

OCD "Oh ... you Cute little Devil".

It's just one of the many things about you for which I am envious.

I like to think that a little bit of your OCD has rubbed off on me. I look at that and think, " Of course you would organize things like that." But than my laziness shows through and I just throw everything in a box...figures!!

That's SO me. I think it's both OCD & great organizational skills. I have to make labels AND lists of what is in each box AND count, re-count, make sure everything is really in the box ten times. It definitely is OCD for me, but I enjoy it. So I LOVE seeing your fabulous boxes and labels.... and knowing I'm not alone. :)

Well I am certainly impressed! My entire house's Christmas decor fits in about 4 1/2 of those big boxes :) I guess I'll be accumulating more as the years go on; currently they are not labeled at all since I can see what's in there and there aren't many to choose from! I think your labels are lovely :)
