Tidy mind, tidy stitches - Day3 2KCBWDAY3

Tidy mind?  Tidy stitches?  Huh?  They can't be talking about me, the most disorganized woman in the knitting world.  Tidy, my foot.  The miracle is that I actually do finish these babies sooner or later.  Some are way later.  Some get frogged.

My method of organization is to have a project bag, plastic bag, large humongous plastic bag, paper bag with handles, baskets for every project I've started.  Snort.  Howl with laughter.  No, I do have each and every project in its separate container, and occasionally I include my notes and charts.  The problem is that I have too many bags.

Brace yourselves. Here come the pics.  

And this doesn't include the projects in bags in plastic tubs that I may or may not finish. I'm going to do a load of laundry and hide while you are snickering.

To all of you who are as disorganized as me:  Isn't it grand?  You never know what you might find in any project bag!  I do sort of know what I'm working on at the moment.  At least I know that those bags are not in my tubs. 

Vivianne - I don't remember what's in each bag.  Given however that at least 3-4 are current and need to get done, I know that those bags are on top of other bags or in the scrimmage on the chair (4th pic from the top), although that's not always true.  Memory?  What's memory?  I don't remember.

fig - I guess those bags do organize it a bit.  At least there is one project/bag.

I have lots of wips, too. :) I have a short attention span.

Oh thank god I am not alone in my "organization". :)

I was still feeling guilty until you ended with the tubs. Oh yeah, I can so relate!

You are a brave woman to show all of that. I don't want to know all that I have, much less let others know...:-)

How do you find anything ? How do you remember what is in which bag ? My memory is too bad for that :-)

You've got some gorgeous bags! I tend to do the same thing. This is one thing I forgot to blog about today--all the bags full of WIP's. That's a certain form of organization, right?
