As I have mentioned before, I’m a lateral organizer. My office organization system is The Carpet Credenza. To the uneducated, this might look like piles of stuff on the floor. But really, people, it’s a system.
I inherited The Carpet Credenza from my dad. His office often has neat piles of folders lined along the wall. I have taken The Carpet Credenza to new heights … new heights of sloppiness. However, I’m coming to realize that along with putting my own spin on The Carpet Credenza, I have also passed down this lateral organizing system to my kids.
Lil’ Frankfurter is really pushing the limits of The Carpet Credenza. He’s so dedicated to lateral organization that he freaks out if his toys are actually inside the toy box. He watches me put all the toys away, then spends about five minutes distributing the toys around the floor – as they should be.
Dad? Do you see what we’ve created? It’s a proud, proud moment – kind of like watching your kid accept a Nobel Prize … but with a lot more fiberfill strew all over the floor.
Also, I’m not sure if many Nobel Prize winners don fiberfill in such an adorable, decidedly Colonel Sanders sort of way.
