Could I be more disorganized?

Last November I bought a 12-pack of C size batteries. Today, when my flashlight gave up the ghost, I looked for that package which should still hold 9 batteries. I've identified many places where it isn't; logical places like with the other regular batteries or even with the rechargables and illogical places (any flat surface I may have set them)...nothing.

This isn't the first time I find myself growling in frustration as I hunt for something I know I've purchased. I just wish I would learn to be more careful and, dare I say, organized.

Oh, if I listed everything I've "put somewhere" and can't now find! I don't think it's so much a need to be more careful or organized than it is the fact that our minds are seriously on overload these days and can store and then call back up only so much . . . like where I put that new bra. Hmmmm, batteries or underwear, batteries or underwear . . .

Well, if you were more disorganized, you would be me. I am renown for putting things in a 'safe place'. The only thing safe about those places is that I will never find them. And let's not forget finding them AFTER you've replaced them. Sheesh.

Organisation is definitely key.....I have to admit I'm a bit of a stickler for putting things back where they came from...or just wish everyone else would in the house would do the same thing!! Of course they are bound to turn up when you don't need them...only to be lost again when you want to put your hands on them...such is life!!

For batteries, I have one of those dollar, plastic shoe boxes. I keep all my batteries, small screwdrivers, battery checker, and related odds and ends. The problem is my kids and grands also know where I keep my batteries.
