    Some of these (*cough* the grass) are a bit much. But having worked retail I can tell you that some of these are great boredom busters at work and most of these just make me so happy to see order there…. Maybe I need help 😂

    Maybe a bit over the top but keeps workers busy.

    I see it as just being organized. Okay a few may be perfectionism.

    I call it perfection. The only bad thing is when someone will come along and take one and ruin the whole thing😕

  8. What an amazing collection, and so many! Been saving up for this one for a while?

    There are two kinds of people in the world. Seeing a carefully-stacked pyramid of canned tomatoes in the aisle of the store, one type will take a can off the top. The other will try to find the key can to cause a jenga fail. I confess, Lord forgive me, I have been tempted…

    • Those perfectly-arranged displays in the grocery store make me reluctant to take one at all, because I don’t want to spoil the symmetry.

      • Go ahead. It’s symmetry designed to be spoiled.

        You’ve likely seen those grocery displays where a bunch of cases of sodapop are stacked up to be a great big image, for the Big Game, or Hallowe’en. Saw a snippet of vid somebody posted of one of those displays going up. Disappointing: to see those aren’t all full, individual cases carefully stacked by the clever kid at the store; they’re just cardboard facades, already glued together for the display.

    I don’t care what it’s called, I find it very satisfying … with the exception of the books. They MUST be in alphabetical order by author … which is another kind of perfectionism/OCD, I guess 😀

    Nice collection, BoB 🙂

    I am only really interested in the cake displays. They always get me in any great cake shop. Those books are not owned by a true book lover. Must be in subject grouping or alphabetical author if it’s fiction.

    Ps if I always refold the towels after my DH has attempted to, am I ocd?

    Isn’t this the way things are supposed to be?
    btw, I organise my clothes in the wardrobe by colour – hadn’t thought of it by books, but all our books are subject specific, so not applicable (a good thing, I’m thinking).

    • One of my daughters used to organize all her clothes by color, in spectrum (spectral?) order. Her closet was a sight to behold.

      I organize my books by genre and/or subject, or in the case of children’s books, by age level. My music is organized chronologically, beginning with the middle ages and progressing through the twentieth century. It’s easier for me to find what I’m looking for that way, and ensures that the Moody Blues don’t end up sandwiched between Monteverdi and Mozart. 🙂

  16. Some of these give me the warm fuzzies. Others don’t because I know they’re ephemeral.

    I can appreciate a really good display well done and organized, I think just about everybody does. The Extra Mile, y’know…

    I love all of them and feel so satisfied looking at them, but the t-shirts at the bottom, the colored hangers, and the file folders at the top are all totally me.
