I would much rather organize closets and rooms than to actually clean. I find cleaning to be really boring actually, and it really disturbs my allergies-no fun! With organizing you come across things that you forgot you even had and memories come back to you:).

I love both. Here's why: I enjoy vaccumming and have the fresh febreeze air effects scent fill the room. I love dusting and having my shelfs and desktops look like new and so clean! Organizing is fun too! I love buying home decor and organizing picture frames and candels and mirrors around my house. I love my walk in closet - therefore it is labeled and organized *my husband can only go in there to get his things I never allow him to but things away because I don't want him to mess up my system* I love to organize the game closet and blanket closet too. Even organizing dressors is fun! My true passion is to organize all my rooms! The guest room and office with perfect accents of candels, pictures, and art. My husbands weight room with weight accessories and football. My basement is a bar haven with artwork and dart board and pool table with fun accessories! I love it!

I dream of being organized enough to be able to push teh hoover round without falling over something. Sadly it seems as if its not my purpose in life to live somewhere tidy, I'm just going to have to learn to live with a messy creative household I think.

I like both...but I think I like organizing better. I really like trying to make rooms clutter free and more functional. I live in a really small apartment so I have had to get creative with space and organization. In fact I feel like I try some new way to organize every week. Lately I've been tryig to get rid of (either trash or donate) things that I haven't used in say 3 years, or clothes that I know I will not wear again. A recent tript to IKEA also gave me a lot of ideas for organizing. They have tons of storage options, and things I wouldn't even think of, like raisers for your bed, so you have more under bed space. I might be giving those a try. Besides, having a higher bed will make me feel like a princess :-)

I personally like to do both,because i consider them both to be a part of cleaning, but since i have to state my preference im gonna have to say cleaning, like dusting and vacumming..cause when too much dust collects it bothers my allergies and i just dont like the site of it.
