Do you have a well-organized home or room? How often do you clean your home? Do you have a place for every thing and every thing ineach place? Do you like this idea? Can you maintain the cleanliness in your house? For me, I can not maintain but at least I exerted some efforts to clean especially in the weekends.

Same with me here. It is not so perfect but I am trying to keep it clean and organized. It is just easy to disorganized things but difficult to put it back in the proper place. But we will make it a habbit.lol.

My room isn't too well-organized like a hotel room but its clean nonetheless. I have my books properly placed in the bookshelf,the clothes are in the wardrobe and the study table is also clean. So I think I should be marked as an organized person! It just gets a bit disheveled during exam time when I often leave books open here and there but we have our mothers for those difficult times,isn't it!

Good for you lahari for having good skills on organizing things at home. Well, during exams or if we have some reports or anything that keeps us busy, it is really expected to have some clutters all around. I also love my late mom for keeping the room clean when we are too busy to do it.

Yes, I am a well-organized person. And I clean around the house a lot. I think I got it from my father. And it is really an advantage. Except that, let me tell you, I just hate it when my family starts misplacing the things that they use. They don't know how to return the things they get to their proper places. And it is so tiring, to keep up with them. I have been teaching them to follow order but they just look at me. It is so annoying. They just cannot cooperate with me. And then, when someone misplaces something, they ask me where it is. How else should i know, if they did not return it to its proper place... Argghh!

Hi Atebuds I can feel how hard it for you to maintain your home's cleanliness while other members of the family are not cooperating. I remember my late aunt who used to model us and do the cleaning at home and even tryin very hard to keep the house tidy but most of the children like to messed things around.

I have a very good system and everything has a place but I need help to carry out that system. I will need someone to get me this and get me that and also to put it back where it belongs. On my own I find it cumbresome to do those chores and so if help is not around my house does have a cluttered look!

Yes, when it comes to cleanliness and orderliness of my room I'm always strict about it. I have book shelves for my books and souvenir items, cabinet with divided drawers, each drawer contain specific item e.g. top shirts only, pants only and etc. I have bin for dirty clothes, boxes for candies and chips, container for personal grooming accesories, box for jewelries and watches and others. I thoroughly cleaned my room twice a week.

Good for you. I really salute people who can maintain cleanliness at home. Some of us have also those organizers but failed to keep the place tidy. I think it is more of a habbit or what we used to and also the parents' trainings,disciplines and exampleor models to their children.

It is a good principle, if followed sincerely the living place will be neat and tidy, and required things can be accessed within reach. I cannot live in the place which is dirty, as I believe in the saying "CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS"

Yeah, also believe this principle in terms of cleanliness at home and at work. But keeping neat and tidy all the time is not that easy too especially if the family is large, e.i., children, cousins, nieces, nephews,etc. Asyou keep cleaning, other members of the family also will make it untidy.

My husband likes things to be just so in our room. He really has trouble adjusting to big changes, and so I usually let him do the rearranging. However, when it comes to cleanliness it's my department to dust and do all the chores that we're required to do because he's the one working and I am not. So he's the organizational specialist and I'm the cleanly specialist. It's only our room that has to be organized just so, our bathroom cabinets do not need to be organized as that's a daunting task.
