I said it.
I’ve always been messy. Organization never came easy to me. The average person would take a bookcase and make it somewhat presentable. Whenever I’d receive the same bookcase, no matter what, it would come back not nearly as organized or nice looking.
Something came over me, and I tore apart our bedroom closet, and reorganized everything. His dresser has his socks, and his boxers all neatly stacked together. The baskets in which my undergarments were located in were altogether in a variety of baskets, now each basket has one item in it: socks, underwear, lingerie, bras, etc.
Every hanger had clothes hung on it, and shoes were neatly stowed away in their correct areas. Clothes were refolded into their apartment compartments, and in my folding area, I organized it into 3 areas: t-shirts, shirts I could wear for work, and then shorts, dresses, and anything else that didn’t fit in the above categories.
I then moved to the bed area. I cleaned around my half of the bed where books were scattered all over. I cleaned, and finished by making the bed.
And then I moved to the Christmas boxes that were stacked on the floor and the desk areas. I gathered all the books around, put all my art supplies and scrapbooking supplies together, and began to organize the desk. One drawer was all art supplies, the other drawer was computer related and battery related items.
It was a good start. I’m just thankful I only live in a Studio Apartment. Although it’s a HUGE studio that feels more like a 1 bedroom apartment, it was a mess, and it was NEEDED.
But one thing I truly walked away from is the feeling of accomplishment, and the feeling of how things are so much easier when everything has a home to go to.
Now, I just hope I can get the other half to keep this neatness thing going for awhile 😉
The kitchen and bookshelf area will be tackled later on this week. I have to keep this motivation going and this new found cleanliness up. Once you start, it’s easy to maintain. *crosses fingers* I don’t end up lazy again.
