It Depends On You

It doesn't matter if you have a complete set of cleaning tools and supplies and put it in the kitchen and toilet where everyone can see it and use it, it doesn't matter if you have trash cans visible and labeled, when someone's mindset is, one, it's not their personal space and, two, it's not their job. There are people who are messy and disorganized at home, but would never litter or use and break things when they're outside. There are people who take pride in their house and yard, but don't care about leaving a mess in public places. Is one better than the other?

Outside, we take great care in never leaving a mess. At home, we do tend to be messy on the whole but are actually organized in certain areas. The kitchen is always organized for some reason - maybe because I know we have to use it everyday and efficiency must be there?

I'd say it's more important to respect shared areas than your own home, but obviously it's better if you can respect both. I'm not a litterer and never have been, and my house is always clean and occasionally I even have the time to make it tidy

My husband probably belongs to the first set there... He's not always organized at home and tends to be messy but he also cleans really well when he does at home. Outside in public places, he's always very cautious and would never do anything that is dangerous, harmful or simply an inconvenience to anyone...

I try to be organized at home, but I made sure the cleaning materials are put away from the kitchen, have my trash segregated in separate trash bags, and do not leave mess even when in public places. It is true some people do not mind about cleanliness and order when in public places.
