POkay I am such an idiot when it comes to neatness and or storage. Attatched is a photo of my nice hutch in my dining room. Hutches are usually used to display/store knick knacks and or dishes/glasses. Well I have few odf those itmew sin mine for some reason. As you can see, just on the main shelf I have, a flashlight, light bulb,light globe cover, candle holders, potpourri burner, grape juice, bread, an empty bowl and plate, a hammer. screwdrivers, various screws nuts and bolts etc, pruning shears, dog food, binoculars and other hidden items. Why do I set everything there is a mystery. So does your Hutch etc look at all like this? Are you a messy individual as far as storage etc? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

i'm not exactly a clean freak, but i would have to clean up that hutch. lol i'm pretty good at putting things away, and having a certain place for things, even if it's just a basket to toss it in until i put it away. it keeps the total house work down to a minimum, which is good now that i'm having to do things one-handed for the most part.

I also am not a clean freak evidently. Things go wherever I find room for the most part most times. Now canned goods etc have their specific place here though. Go figure huh? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Oh yeah, we're like that too. We have a shelf in our bedroom that is a catch all for everything, its a poor sight to see, I've been meaning to go thru it and throw things away that don't need to be on it, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Well my husband divided it up between us, he said I could have two shelves and he would take two shelves, but if you look at it, he has almost 3 shelves, and all my stuff is crammed onto 1 and a half...lol. Theres everything from books, to makeup, to perfume, to Cd's, to fishing lures, to tools, to fly fishing stuff, to picture albums, to a globe cover also...you name it, its on there..lol. We're messy individuals when it comes to storage, if its a flat surface, you can bet, that there will be alot of stuff stacked on it.

The front of mine is fine....the bottom shelf on one of them is where things tend to accumulate. I buy the quarters...and new dollars for the grandkids and I toss them there until I send them off. I also have other papers etc...that I want to keep handy. Otherwise most of it does just have pretties in it.

Tried to call you yesterday. I got the home phone. But your cell number, I couldn't read it all. My writing was quick at that time. Anyhow........ My wife has those book things and she has all 100 quarters now. She has a customer that travels and he always makes sure she has the P and D of each State that was released. My desk gets the same way as the hutch all too often with papers/notes etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Not me as you can see. I just set things down wherever theirs room evidently. The inside is somewhat organized. No food anyhow inside the hutch. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I don't have a hutch but I'd love to get one some day. I have some very nice, extremely old dishes that I'd love to display in it...their tucked away in my cupboards for now. Other than my desk getting kind of cluttered I'm pretty good about putting things away. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG AND TRUST IN GOD**[/b]

Flat surfaces just cry out to be covered in things... Maybe just put your tools in the toolbox where they belong so you can find them when you need them, and the hutch will look a lot less messy. The bread and juice, plates, etc. actually belong there, now, don't they?

Thats normal to me. I have a shelf unit and it seems to catch all the ends and ends too. I wish I could be more organized, but I am not.

I say why be organized, it just causes a reason to be messy. I can be messy without the thinking process of being organized. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yep, like I said, it looks normal to me. I have a system, its called the pile system, a pile here and a pile there.

I think you're very organised, GB - after all, you know where everything is, don't you? I like to think I'm an organised person, but we have a LOT of stuff, and to other people it probably looks like clutter. It's all in its place though, and I know exactly where things are when I'm looking for them.

Man, that's nothing. Have you seen that episode of the Simpsons when Marge goes away, Homer and Bart are left alone in their home and they do "snow angels" on the trash? That's me. I feel tempted to post pictures of it, but it would be too embarrassing. Rich

My entire family is just like that. We don't have counter space in our house. It's used for our storage area's. I do have a curio that is neatly organized but that's the only organized place in our house.

We have a bad habit of putting things on the coffee table. Ever so often I take it all to what we lovingly call the junk drawers and in it goes. I have places for all the misc stuff but sometimes the coffeetable is the catch all lol

If my hubby left my hutch like this I would kill him Bob. I am a very tidy person. This does look like my Dads house, only he has saw dust and model aeroplanes every where. He is just like you, but he knows where everything is, so I guess he does not mind. If you know where everything is I suppose this is your way and you will not change it.

I am not a neat freak either. I take things out and don't not put them back right away. If I had a hutch it would look like yours minus the dog food. I don't have a dog. I do clean my mess up once in a while. Happy Holidays GrandPa Bob.

Grandpa Bob, You should see my office. I can hardly walk with the way I have filed everything. I am to the point to where I need to clean it out. I need to get motivated and get busy. I just cannot seem to get myself to move the crap around and put it in some kind of order.

My hutch - THis is my hutch right now
Lol..I have to laugh as my hutch needs sorted out as well. Some of thinsg I have. I plan on giving to a friend if she would ever come over to my new place. Once she does I will be able to clear some things out. If not, I will probably put the things on Craigslist and tell someone to come get them.
