Are you an organized person?

2009 is about to end and yet my no.1 new year's resolution for this year I was not able to practice religiously. I promised myself to be more organized but no, all my things in our bedroom are still scattered. Our clothes are still not properly folded and kept in the cabinets. My drawers are still a mess. There are lots of things to be thrown in the garbage but has not find time to do so. Now I am wondering if I am the only person who is like this. Anybody there who is the same as I am?

I ask my husband though, and he is a fast worker. I am ashamed actually because he is more organized than me. But don't you get tired? What is your tip in being organized?

Last night I moved my room around. Threw out tons of garbage. gave away some clothing and washed all of my clothes. All before the ball drops. I have nothing left to do in the bathroom either. The kitchen is done except the stove and fridge. I will do them tomorrow or tonight. I am organized a bit more than I like. i have my bed made and everything has it's place. I am also tired from clearing out so much.

I get tired easily that is why when I clean, it is for a limited time only.

Yes, I have my year planner and monthly planner to be organized and not to forget special dates of my loved ones. This help me be reminded of my objectives for the year. My plans and even knows If I had made it successful or not. There I can evaluate all the things I did and what more to do for the coming year. This gives me a good time management skills and be alert always with my plans in life for the coming year.

Hi aileen2008! I'm an organized person. I just don't like to see clutter in my place. It would be easier for me to find something if it is well organized. I regularly clean my household and if I am very busy, I just call the cleaners. I think you just needed more time to fix all those things in order. Happy mylotting!

There are portions of my house as you have described your's and for the same reason--lack of time. However, in the living where I work at, I am somewhat organized unless I'm heavy into research. The problem here is lack of space. But generally I am organized--provided I put my stuff back where I got it from after I used it!

Good for you PastorP. I really have to discipline myself to be more organized.

My condition may be worse than yours.I organize things in order on every weekend, but they would return to mess on monday,because i don't put things back after using them. I think i should wrirt "put things back" on my list this year.

To be honest I think I should be more orginized too. My locker has food in it from months a go adn my book are every where, and I dont want to even talk about my room :)You are not the only person who is un organized I have lots of friend who are. I think you should try agian this year to be more organized but get your friend, family and others to remind you. I think i'll try this too :) But somtimes I think you should keep things un organized because its better to find things for some people.

yup im not very organized either. My room has all my work scattered across the floor, cloths hanging around. But its not always like that. When i can be bothered i can be really organized and tidy my room and put everything into nice neat piles :) But then a week later everything will be back to how it was :)

I like things to be tidy, looking at a mess will make me go crazy lol. But I'm not request tidy for every minute. I often do some cleaning and house keeping on weekends. If it's sunny and warm, that'll be a very pleasnt thing to do, makes me very happy and satisfied.

I used to be an organized person. I used to want everything very neat and tidy. Now im very weird. I became a perfectionist but in an unorganized/pointless way. Haha I always want things neat, but in a messy way. If something is sticking out, I have to make it stick out but at a specific length or position. If something is not in their right spot, I leave it there but I have to make it look weird until I am comfortable. I am not sure if you understand me but there is a lot more weird things I do. Haha Dont worry, you are not alone. I want to be neat, but its just not as easy as before. Now my room has clothes laying here and there. There are a lot of papers and just random things on my desk. Dont worry. =]

I am somewhat organized, but I'd like to be more organized. All of my clothes are neatly put away, but I'd like for the kitchen to be more tidy - a couple of the cupboards are getting really messy.
