Extreme Organizing

There's been a whole lot of trends going on, some of which I have hopped on board (high waist jeans, say what?), some which I don't wish to know anything about (shutter shades, really?).

One of the most recent trends that have caught my fancy though, is things that have been organized neatly.

I don't know what it is. I can't put it into words, and I'm almost 75.68% convinced that it dates back to the time when Cher decided to rearrange her face.

But first, I have to be clear. When I mean organized things, I simply mean looking at high-resolution photos of things that have already been organized and enjoying neatness vicariously. I don't want you getting inspired by me for nothing, you know.

There is just something all-consuming about looking at things that have been arranged! And I assure you I'm not the only one, because there is an entire Tumblr blog dedicated to this obsession, appropriately titled "Things Organized Neatly", that exploded all over the interwebz which is not created by me. Also, the IKEA Minimalist Baking Book. Life changer. 

And as with other trends, you would expect it to disappear into the back of our crowded minds, but I'm pretty sure this is here to stay for a while. Swiss artist Ursus Wehrli is just releasing an entire book filled with pages of everyday things being organized into magic.

Do you see how things as ordinary as Alphabet Soup can turn into a colossal success when lined up like army soldiers? Doesn't that just torture you? (In a good way).

I foresee the next generation of youth spending their days stacking pencils according to lead tip pointy-ness. It's part of our future.
