One of my favorite Friends episodes is the one where Ross dates a beautiful supermodel, played by Rebecca Romijn, and she ends up being a hoarder slob. Spoiler – the end, where Monica comes over and tries to clean her place, is priceless. I met a guy early in quarantine who was like that. Fit, liberal and when I saw his house on Zoom I was appalled. It’s not that hard to clean up the space behind you! I’m the kind of person who shoves sh-t in drawers with a loose organization system and values a clean space over perfectly organized cabinets though. Not Courteney Cox! She recently shared this video on Instagram of her pantry, with the caption “Tell me you’re a Monica without telling me you’re a Monica.”
OMG her spices! I am so jealous. I have my spices laying down in a drawer (lined with contact paper, that makes me fancy) and sort-of alphabetized. As for my dry goods, some are in plastic containers, some are in their original packaging, but they’re put away and I can find stuff so it’s neat enough for me. I don’t think I would have the wherewithal to set up a system like this and maintain it. Did she get professional help with that? It reminds me of Khloe Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen’s amazing pantries, both of which were professionally created. I’ve watched so many YouTube videos (Do it on a Dime and Clutterbug are some go-tos) and feel like I’ve made enough progress with my house. However this week I lost the whisk attachment to my mixer and was digging through things trying to find it. I’m more of a Rachel though.
