It’s no secret that I’m not the neatest person ever. My definition of “clean” is not gross, germy, no food left out on counters, etc. I’m good at that. When it comes to keeping things neat, though, I usually fail. Not having everything put away really bothers me though, and it can become overwhelming at times. Today is definitely one of those days.
My problem with cleaning is unless everything can go in a place, it frustrates me. I hate putting things in piles until there is a place for them and it bothers me way more if our house looks clean but things aren’t put away in an organized space than it does if our house is just messy. Maybe other people are the same way, maybe not. Someday I want a big house so that there’s plenty of space to have everything perfectly organized, because then our house will be clean too.
One of the things I’m most excited about for when we move is starting over with a clean slate. I’ve already started a list of things I want to get in order to organize our next place better. I will be there for the unpacking too which I think will make the initial organization go much faster. And we’ll actually be starting out with furniture to put things on/in! Now that’s truly exciting. For now I’ll just focus on being organized where I can in places like my planner.
What are your favorite pieces of organizational furniture/bins/storage devices I might want to add to my list for our next home?
