Organization Tuesday: The Mini-Bar

This weekend I was finally able to sample The Standard Hotel in Chelsea. While I am usually very good at resisting the temptations of the mini-bar, this one was too well-stocked and organized to resist. Anything my heart desired was in there. While I was able to resist the Smartwater, Absolut, and all the recipes for delicious cocktails. I gave in for apple juice and chocolate chip cookies. What am I, five years old? Bravo Standard – this was too fabulous.

In other news, as I continue on my organizing journey, I found a rolling rattan chest of drawers in the back of a deep coat closet. One of the drawers was weighed down by all of my soundtrack CDs that I didn’t have room for in my case logic binders. Today I’ll be tackling the alphabetizing and inserting. I know with all of the iPod technology out there these days I probably don’t even need the actual CDs anymore, but getting rid of my jewel cases was traumatic enough. Seeing as how I still have a stack of albums and no turntable, I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of the CDs for at least another decade, though during my last move I did part with all of my cassette tapes. I hope some lucky dog out there is enjoying my Echo and the Bunnymen and my Scritti Politti music.

P.S. That Office Space soundtrack is awesome. I still picture them destroying the printer with a baseball bat whenever I hear the Geto Boys.

    I’ve been lurking this blog for a while but was finally compelled to comment because of your Veruca Salt CD. One of my favorite albums of the 90s :) Hope there’s some Juliana Hatfield or Letters to Cleo buried in there too!

    Too funny, I have both of those, and I remember discovering Letters to Cleo because they would play it at the end of Melrose Place episodes. The old Melrose that is! While Juliana survived, the Blake Babies were lost in the cassette dumping!
