Sometimes I think it is a sickness

I read a lot of blogs about all the yard sales and thrift shops all you ladies are making it to. I read about the love of spray paint! I also read about how you are all decorating for fall.

What I haven't read about is an aisle I just can't walk by without buying something. I wonder if I am the only one with this sickness!!!

I like ......are you buy, hoard and yes even use plastic storage containers. On Tuesday I stopped by the grocery store to pick up some salsa and left many dollars later because I saw some plastic storage containers on sale!!!

This is my favorite. It is a photo storage box by IRIS.

It comes with six containers inside of it. I would love to go back and buy about 100 more of these!!! I love them!!! Seriously, I love these containers!!!

One of the things that really makes this a sickness is with the hundreds of storage containers that I have, whenever I find something new that I like I want to replace all of my old containers so they match!!!!

This morning at 3:30 my hubby woke me up tugging on the covers. At 4:45 when I was still awake I decided to just get up. I walked on my treadmill for 30 minutes this morning already. I know by the end of the day I will be too tired to try to make up the 10,000 steps. Yesterday I got in over 11,000! I've decided to keep track on the side of my blog. I hope to get 10,000 in four days a week. Any thing beyond that will be a bonus!!!

take care,

That is too funny over storage containers. But hey, we all have our little quirks!! So, what all are you going to put in that kind of container?

GREAT job on your steps and yes, putting them on the side is a great job....cheer, cheer!!!

I think you catch this from being a teacher. I used to buy containers too....and yesterday bought some at the Dollar tree while in there looking for those little pumpkins everyone raves over! LOL

Have a great day,

Go, Dawn, Go!!!

If you have to have an illness, at least this one isn't harmful. And, I really like that box, too. Did you buy me 100, too?

I have the organized illness but not the plastic storage container illness.

You're doing great with the walking!

Dawn, thanks for your comment on my post this morning. I get so emotional about our country.Especially 9/11.

Advice, stay away from the container isle. Smile.

Encouragement, keep that treadmill going. I am proud of you. Smiling big.

Love you girl, Jeanne

Oooh, I love those photo containers...I've never seen any quite like that before. I can definitely understand why they couldn't be passed up!

11,000...see, I knew it was going to be a good day for you! And I bet today is going to be, too! Way to go, Dawn!

Dawn, I wish I was so organized. I also think it's a teacher thing ; )
My best friend is also a Weight Watchers girl and she managed to loose over 100 lbs. I know you can do it again. She also gained it all back once, but this time she said it's gone for good. It is a battle, but you sound motivated and I'm a cheerleader all the way here in Canada for you. GO GIRL GO.
P.S. I have insomnia but 4:45??? YIKES!!
Oh I nearly forgot. Are we having a Foto Friday???
