1 mom liked this

It's good it did though :)

Quoting katiebug840204: It was expected, unfortunately. It wasn't by my choice at all....but it stuck with me!

Quoting hugss:

Bet your parents loved that?

Quoting katiebug840204: Yep I always have been an organized person! Even when I was a kid my room stayed neat and clean and organized.



Quoting hugss:

That is great!
Have you always been organized?

Quoting katiebug840204: I'm very organized. I am always on time, everything in my home has a place, papers get filed immediately, clothes are separated into their special sections, I write everything down in a notebook so I will not forget anything, shoes have a home....you get the picture.





It drives my husband crazy sometimes...but for the most part he is very happy I am as organized as I am.

I can understand when like you say one is so busy,
As well as with work ..
Surprised to hear not at your home though ..

Quoting Sister_Someone:

Really depends with what.

Over the years, I've become very efficient at organizing my life and my time, primarily because I didn't have a choice. When you're attending college full-time, working full-time, AND have a toddler, organizing everything down to a minute is a life-saving skill.

Now, my stuff, not at all. I keep my workplace pristine, for one because I work in a lab and it's kind of important to keep it neat, and for two, because I think that anything less would be unprofessional, but I just don't care about the stuff I own. If it's not in my way, it's good enough. My car, and to a lesser extent my home, look like a tornado blew right through them at any given time. That's why I sometimes can't find stuff.

Quoting lapcounter: Very, cannot stand unorganization.

I guess burn-out's got something to say in that conversation. It's exhausting enough to juggle work, life, and everything in between, that I just don't have any energy left to care where I put my stuff. The way I choose to look at it is, well, it's stuff. It's not like it's going anywhere. If I just put it wherever, chances are that's exactly where I'm going to find it an hour from now, or a month from now.

i dnt know lol.
i know i was messy as a teen.  but it seems like the older i get the less 'stuff' i can stand cluttering up my life lol.  i feel at ease and relaxed when there isnt much stuff and there is a lot of space.  i love CLEAN. lol.  airy and bright. 

Quoting hugss:

Good for you!
Have you always been so organized?

Quoting Its.me.Sam.:

VERY VERY.
i do not like clutter at all so i dont have a lot of "stuff" (no unnecessary decor - like knick-knacks and stuff).  so it is very organized.  and i like space..open floor.
if it is unnecessary i dont buy it.
