Okay. One of my goals for this year was to take control of my life. This definitely encompasses getting control of my personal files. Right now, they are in a paper shopping bag in my closet. I would like them to be neatly filed and easily accesible instead.

With this in mind, I purchased two new IKEA JONAS storage drawers to go on either side of my desk. I figured one could hold my important documents and my bills and the other could hold my writing notes. Perfect, right?

I bought them at the end of November and had been lazy about getting my filing sorted out. So last weekend I decided that the time had come and that I should get to work putting all my file folders in the cabinet. I had gotten regular size folders, not thinking anything about it.

WELL. And forgive me if I come off as ignorant, but I had NO CLUE that Europe apparently has different sized filing folders than the United States. I mean, seriously, file folders?? I understand different outlets to plug things in, and different measurement units and all that...but FILE FOLDERS????????

I actually had to go on google and type: "WHY DON'T MY FILE FOLDERS FIT MY IKEA CABINET." The size needed for the Ikea cabinets are A4....and of course, I can buy them at IKEA...but geeze.

So, my files are still in a paper bag and I'm not closer to getting them organized than I was in November.

Thanks, Ikea.


  1. Don't want to be mean, but hehehe...

    Also, where did you get the template for the blog? I am thinking of getting the new template or maybe even changing my blog address and name.

  2. Laugh! I bet you didn't know either!!!

    I actually made this template for my blog after much tinkering, but there are plenty of sites on the net that offer templates for blogger, just google "free blogger templates" or something and they'll pop up. But I definitely think you should do something new with your blog! It's a new year!

  3. Sure. My blog is too plain. I need more color. Something exotic. ;)

    Also, as I walk around the Ave, I saw this thing that I know you will like. I was going to send it to you, but your b-day is coming. So, you will get it on your B-day. Don't worry. It's not expensive, I just think you will like it very much. :D

    If you want, I can send it to you now.

    Gosh, I can't keep my mouth shut until your b-day.

    Shut up, Cat!

  4. hehehe, you send it whenever you feel like it, lady.
