Creating Your Own Organizing Style
Cleanliness and organization have a certain expectation that comes with it. Imagine a clean room. Is it sparse with everything perfectly spaced out? Or, are there lots of things out - yet everything has a place? Everyone’s vision of “clean” is different; there’s nothing wrong with that.
It’s time to let go of the stigma that’s stuck to “clean.” If it’s nearly impossible for you to keep your home or office together, perhaps you need to reevaluate what your idea of organized is. It may look like chaos, but is it organized chaos? There’s a difference between knowing where everything is and your space looking like a magazine photo shoot. Don’t organize in a way that you feel is expected; organize in a way that works best for you.
There is no right and wrong way of organizing. The whole point of it in the first place is to help prevent you from forgetting and losing things; you know where everything is. Stop trying to live up to someone else’s standards!
