When the madness began...

Some of you who have commented on If Clothes Could Talk have noted that I must be slightly crazy. I usually respond with an anecdote about how I really like to organize information...and have been doing so ever since I was a kid.

Well, now I have proof. My mum has been going through some old files, and she found an excel spreadsheet I made when I had just turned 13. It's an inventory of all of my stuffed toys (I had quite a lot). 

Here is a snapshot of it (with spelling mistakes preserved):



And yes, I had a Leopard named Cheetah.

I'm actually REALLY glad I made this at that time, because I wouldn't remember the dates these days. So, I'm quite proud of myself for recording this seemingly useless information before I forgot it. :P

That's too funny. I also like to categorize things, but I don't think I ever went as far as to organize by stuffed animals. Of course, I never really had a lot of stuffed ones, so there is that. But I have listed out my CDs, DVDs, vinyls, I even categorizing my jewelry. So yea, I totally get the need for inventory listing.

Yeah, I have a friend who bought a wicked program that creates an inventory/library-system for her books, and I am crazy jealous. (I am also jealous because the majority of my books are stored on the other side of Canada).

Inventories are fun! :P

It is so comforting to know that I am not the only one who does that. (or did that). I have lists upon lists of things. Thank you for sharing.

Adorable!!

I had a lot of dolls growing up but I'm too lazy to name them. That seems to be the trend for me LOL

I love it, especially the aptly named Rooster and Red the lobster. Really, this is just doggone adorable. I bet I've got a pretty similar unicorn of about the same vintage named Galahad. Did you hang on to them? I think mine are mostly in a box somewhere in our understairs storage.

Haha, thanks. The funny thing to me about the unicorn is that I'm sure "Cote" is a spelling mistake, but I don't know what the heck I was trying to spell.

I hung onto some of them. Velvet the raccoon is next to me right now, actually. Some I gave to altogether, and some I gave to my nieces...but I still have a fair number. They are back in storage at my mother's house.

That is adorable. <3

I made analysis charts more so than cataloguing, but there's probably a common element in there somewhere.

I think Frogee Frogee Flop Flop is my favorite. :D

I still have him! I'm not sure where exactly he is - but I know I've got him somewhere. He is rather small.

Ooo analysis charts ;)
