Losing Time And Money

Being unorganized not only looks bad, it is a major waste of time. I have been meaning to sort my stuff for months now and I have used one excuse after another...too hot, too tired, not enough time...etc. Now I want to find something and I just wasted 2 hours digging through boxes and still no luck.

See, I have a watch that I want to sell on ebay. I was going to sell it in the Spring but I decided to wait until Christmas time because I thought I might get more money for it. So, I put it in the mobile home with the rest of my stuff...at least I think I put it there. Today I was chatting with a co-worker about watches and he said he was interested in buying another watch. I showed him what mine looks like online and he said to bring it in on Monday. When I got home I started searching, and searching, and searching.

Now, I am messy but I can usually find things. But this time I have added all of the stuff from my rental house, moved everything around to block off the doorway when I got the dogs, and then moved everything again when I put the cat in there when the air conditioner broke in the RV. It was 95 degrees today and I was sweating and miserable as I opened box after box and racked my brain to remember where I put it. I have no idea.

If I didn't have to work this weekend then I could find it but since I do have to work I don't have the time or energy to look for it now. Too bad, he was going to pay me $150 if he liked it. Maybe he won't mind waiting for 3 weeks until I have some free time to do a thorough search.

That happens to me too. If someone else wants it then I cant find it or even if I want it, I end up buying another one. Definitely time for a clear out.
and hey look, I can comment again!

Very frustrating. Unless he is in a super hurry, it sounds like you will still be able to find it in time. Good luck.

Yea Lizzie! Glad your computer is behaving.

Over the Cubicle, he will give me a very hard time because I can't find it. It is embarrasing. After another 2 hours searching, I'm beginning to wonder if I gave it to the goodwill by mistake.
