I am thankful to have married a very organized man. My husband proved to me that some men know where the hamper is, that blankets should be folded after usage, that papers should be piled and labeled properly.
I used to be a little disorganized as that is how I grew up. But like in many other things, practice makes perfect. I am not saying that I am always organized now. I can still be disorganized, specially with my thoughts. An everyday reminder to myself of the things I need to do, clean, throw, etc, keeps me going to the perfect path. Of course, tidying will never be possible with the use of tools. I have tons of folders and envelopes for paper stuff. I have elastics for everything that can be tied. Organizers like those from kendall howard are found in almost every corner of our home.
Some say we are too strict with regards to how our things are organized. They may be right. But for us, we just want to keep everything tidy, neat and organized.
