What's your OCD?

Do you eat foods by threes? Do you have to have the toilet paper a certain way on the roll? What's the one thing that drives you nuts if it's not the way you like it?

I can't let the baggers at the grocery store bag my things. I have to bag it myself. I feel they can't do it right and its just easier to do it myself. My husband won't go to the store with me for this reason.

  • Tp goes OVER.
    No one is allowed on my bed unless you are my DH, or I gave birth to you.
    Sheets and blankets are washed weekly, and NO person gets in bed without a bath/shower first. NEVER do you sleep in a bed or on a pillow that has no sheets or pillow case.
    I don't go to bed until toys are put away, dishwasher is churning away and everything is neat and tidy. Hate waking up to a messy house.
    Dirty coats are disgusting! If I can't get it clean, it goes in the trash and I buy a new one. My kids will NOT wear dirty coats, or clothes. Dirty finger nails or long nails on boys/men are disgusting! They are NOT allowed.
    I have many more, these are the first to pop into my head lol.

  • I must have the toliet paper going the right way (over, not under) and will take it off and fix it even in public restrooms. I also have my canned goods lined up in rows, one row for corn, one for green beans, etc and those rows have to be in the right order. I nearly went nuts when I came home and my MIL had completely rearranged my cabinets! That was the last time she was allowed to stay in my home without someone else there watching her.

  • Oh here is a BIGGIE! No gross crusty crap on the tops of condiment bottles ie katsup mustard etc. It is disgusting! I have also become very OCD about recycling. If I think it can be recycled, it goes in the bin. I replace window blinds often too, I hate dirty or broken blinds.

  • All cabinet drawers and doors must be closed. My husband and especially my son when he is home, leave them open! Drives me crazy! So my job is just to go around and close them all.
