I don’t know about you guys, but if I could choose to be one thing in life, it would be: a dinosaur.
Oh, and: organized.
Before Barb came around, I had no problem with organization. I kept all my shit together, knew where everything was, and then BAM– Barb was born and for one reason or another, organization is now something of the past.
In all honesty, I do feel that I operate better when things are organized. Barb’s room is a great place to go if you need an instant panic attack or a quick trip to the emergency room to have a Lego, Barbie shoe, or some other toy, created in Hell, surgically removed from the bottom of your foot.
This morning I walked into Barb’s room and I told her “Today is the day, my child. Today is the day we clean and organize your room.”
She was equally as thrilled about it as I was.
However, I knew that without my help, it would never get done and I’d hear moans and groans about it ALL day, so I decided that we would work as a team and organize “Barb’s Pink Dungeon” into something a little more…well, organized.
This is what we were faced with. So, I decided to start drinking. Kidding, I took an anxiety pill.
Well, as luck would have it, my friends at Ganizer have come out with a new product to help you organize your shit.
“Ganizer is a home organizational product that is completely a portable storage system that cuts down on clutter. The Universal Hanging System can be fastened over a wall, door or rod and is portable. It’s great for seasonal items, toys, garage storage, sporting goods, etc.”
Cuts down on clutter? SOLD!
Ganizer had sent one of these to me a while back and I decided to make a deal with my little Rastafarian. I told her: “You can have the Ganizer, if you promise to use it to organize your room.”
Seeing Barb is a kleptomaniac and likes to steal anything that comes in the mail for me (I found FOUR Birchboxes while helping her clean her room. FOUR. All of them MINE. All I’d just assumed never made their way to me), I knew this was the ace up my sleeve. I showed her this picture, and said “LOOK HOW ORGANIZED THIS PERSON IS!! SHE LOOKS SO HAPPY BEING ORGANIZED!!” to which Barb replied, “That’s a garage, mom.”
Nonetheless, she caught my drift. She wanted the Ganizer solely because it was sent and delivered to me, in my name.
Barb dove RIGHT on in. I told her the best way to organize with this particular form of organizer would be to use it for things she likes to take places with her. For instance, Barbies. She takes Barbies with her to my parents house for sleepovers. So, Barb went through and found three groups of items she wanted to organize into her three detachable Ganizer zip-up totes, and she was ALL over it. **Side note, I am feeling like a total winner today–I mean seriously, LOOK AT THIS.**
It did take us a couple hours to get everything together, but we did. We organized all the items she wanted to keep in the Ganizer to take with her on the go–which some things I totally do not understand, for instance, a wireless computer mouse that doesn’t work. However, I wasn’t going to question her logic. Nope. Not today, because I WAS WINNING AT PARENTING TODAY!
The results ended up with a trash pile, a donation pile for Goodwill, and most impressive, THIS:
What’s awesome about this form of organization, with the Ganizer, is that it comes with the necessary parts to hang on the back of the door—so you can’t even see it, unless you shut the door.
Not to mention, you can easily take one off and take it on the go with you– or, in Barb’s case, unhook it to play Barbie’s. Bet’s on how long the Barbie’s STAY inside the Ganizer? Yeah. Here’s to hoping.
Alright, so now that Barb’s room is clean, I have some good news for you guys too.
First off, Ganizer if premiering TONIGHT, Sunday, September 13th at 6PM EST on QVC’s “Now That’s Cool with Jane.” They are selling both the Large version of the Ganizer (which is the one Barb and I have) and the Extra Large version. The prices are excellent–so check them out and watch.
If you are in Canada, you can check out the Ganizer and their different options on The Shopping Channel.
EVEN BETTER? I not only have ONE to give away, but I have TWO to give away!
One will be given to my American pals, and the other will be given to my CANADIAN pals! Seeing my Canadian buddies always seem to be left out on the action because shipping is so damn expensive, I worked something out where we can pull a winner for both the US and Canada.
How do you enter? EASY PEASY, muffins. Leave me a comment on the Facebook post that brought you here, and tell me where/how you would use the Ganizer in your place, and let me know if you are CANADIAN or AMERICAN. (I must know that part so I know what fancy kitchen bowl to add your name to for the drawing!) You must be 18 years or older to enter! Barb and I will pull the Canadian AND American winner Sunday September 20th 🙂
That’s it! So, American friends, check out the show TONIGHT on QVC at 6:00pm EST with “Now That’s Cool With Jane” because, clearly, anything that leads to potential organization IS COOL. Trust me. I feel much better now–or, that could be the Xanax talking. HAAAAA. Kidding. 😉
