i think i can officially say i have stopped being messy. lets just hope i don’t go back.
You might wonder how, and i’ll tell you how i did it, although i don’t know if my formula would work for anyone else as it is fairly unique.
first, i got married. to a messy man. you don’t know just how annoying messiness is until you live with another person’s messiness.
secondly, i have my own house to keep clean. i think underneath it all i was always a clean person, i hate a messy bathroom and kitchen. they are clean except when in use, and are cleaned as i go in using them. the rest is very organised.
which brings me to my third and final point. God bless storage. i went to a storage shop with my husband and used some of our wedding gift money to buy various shapes and sizes of storage boxes. they come in plastic, in various bright colours which seems to make being organised fun in a weird way. my office is very neat and tidy, with a box for every item category (ribbon box, paper box, pencils box, etc)and it just looks so cute i actually want to keep it looking like that.
and with all the new wedding gift furniture, the rest of the house is looking a little like a small version of something you’d find in a furniture store add. i say small because it’s quite a small house, thus the need to be very organised, and also very strict when it came to sorting through all of my possessions deciding what to keep and what to discard.
so here’s to not being a messy packrat anymore!
