Heads or Tails #7 - Stack

This week's topic or word is stack. I have to admit that this one has had me stumped. I don't have any fun photos or stories involving stacks or stacking... I'm trying to think creatively but so far I've got nothing.

Let's see what happens if I try some free association. "Stack of" - paper? books? Hmmm, I definitely have lots of those. Maybe a photo would help - wait a minute while I run downstairs and see what I can do about that.

Talk amongst yourselves...

Ok, I'm back! Well, I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to find some inspiration around my house. And more stacks than I thought I'd find. Yikes.

Here are a couple of photos of my bookshelves downstairs - can you tell I have too many books and not enough shelf space?

While I was downstairs, I glanced into the computer room. Big mistake! That room is a mess but thankfully it's generally Ron's problem. About the only things I'm concerned with in there are the stacks of plastic bins that hold all of the girls' outgrown clothing.

And when I came back upstairs, I caught sight of the stack of unread magazines on top of my curio cabinet - I'm a bit behind in my magazine reading... oops.

And lastly, I looked in our pantry cabinet for a snack and realized that it's full of stacks as well - we are lacking cupboard space as well as bookshelf space so it's hard to find the room for everything when we try to stock up on things like cereal. And notice that I had to put the girls' arts and craft supplies in there too since we had nowhere else for those to go...

Anyone want to come help me organize my house so we can get rid of all the stacks?? :)

I love organizing. I don't think I could be in your house and not try to organize something ;-)
Happy H/T! :P

Where do you live again? I love to organize. :)

Our bookshelves look very similar.. overfull. Art supplies with cereal? Why not! LOL

You had more stacks than you thought! LOL

Misty Dawn said...

I can definitely relate to not having enough room for all of my collections. I found myself squinting to see what types of books you read ;-)

oh I loved the arts and craft supply rack :)
nice idea :)

My bookshelves look equally over-populated. I think most homes harbour several stacks.

great pics.
That stack of books reminds me how behind I am in reading.
Must have had high hopes a year ago, bought too many new books and there they sit ....

Lately I've been realizing that no matter how much storage we have, we simply fill it up and need more! It's this compulsion, I think, to save for a rainy day! It is for me!!
