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.
