1) I got this...in the dark blue color. I am going to wear it with a skinny black patent belt and patent flats...then add leggings when it is cold.
2) This looks like the shirt I got this summer...but better...love it with a skirt, tights and boots.
My name is Cathy, and I am addicted to all things J.Crew.

Every Sunday I promise myself that I will plan out meals for the week and try to organize my shopping trips to Trader Joe's and other grocery stores/markets. My sister gave me this planning worksheet where you can write out what you are eating each day and they write your grocery list. What do you do to keep organized and minimize the trips to the store?

Do you all buy in bulk? If so, what are your favorite bulk items?
We typically only "purge" out of necessity as we have moved every few years of our relationship. Now that we have been in the same place for 4 years - too much "stuff" has just accumulated.
Do you all ever take the time to toss stuff out or do you wait until you move? And, who has more stuff - you or your spouse? I always thought I had less, but after 8 years of living together, I would say we are approaching equal amounts of stuff at this point. Yikes.

Also - did you all know (I would guess you do) that Mad Men's "Salvator Romano" owns a home assessories store in New Orleans? Bryan Batt and partner Tom Cianfichi own Hazelnut on Magazine Street. Makes me dig the show even more!

Anyway, the post on Apartment Therapy features our beloved Telluride Freebox. It is located just up the street from where my office is and I try to run by there as often as possible. While I haven't scored anything too noteworthy, I did find an old globe in there one day. It now resides in our messy little home office and I love it.
The worst was when I was recently at the dentist, the window of my examation room looked right out onto the Freebox. I watched as a man dropped off this really cool metal lawn chair that I was determined to grab. I sat in the chair as the technication poked & proded my gums and gave passerbys the old "stink eye" as they gave the chair the once over. After the appoitnment, I ran down there to grab the thing and it was gone! I was quite depressed.
The great debate in town is over the ongoing maintance about the Freebox. The town says it is messy, an eyesore, and is costing money to keep clean. Concerned citizens are fighting for its protection. What side would you fall on? Would you use a freebox?
I first made sure that Ikea sold a frame that would fit them....so now I will have a wall of bugs in my house. I may save them for the day I have a powder room, or I think they would be awesome in a little boy's room....
Do you guys like this whole "curator" look?
