I am organized, yet really unorganized. I collect so many things that just have no place.
So I mostly box things.
In small boxes, large boxes, sometimes colour coordinated.
My favorite thing to find is a great box for storage.
There is nothing like a useful container.
Where do you normally get your things?
When I was in Winnipeg I mostly got my stuff from Value Village. When I moved to Brandon my things came from MCC thrift store, which I think is probably the best thrift store in Manitoba. Winnipegers should take a trip out there just to visit this store. Now that I am in Montreal I find the best way to find things is on garbage days!
What is your prize possession/”thing”/collectible/tool?
This is a tough question. I have so many things I love, but not sure how much! The buttons and beads my Baba gave me when I was a little kid are meaningful to me. I use them sparingly in my work. I just don’t want to let them go.
