On the topic of being messy, how messy are you? Do you like things neat and spotless all the time?
**Side note: Stay tuned for a fun Poll Question at the end of the post!!**
For me, I like to think of it as … Organized Chaos!
I know where to find things in the midst of chaos, except for my work badge, that I can’t keep at one spot. Somehow I manage to keep my purse, car keys and work bag and the same location, but work badge, I am constantly on the hunt for it every morning!
My husband and I are both work full-time. By the time we get back from work, on weekdays, we mostly don’t have the energy to clean up the mess.
Most days, our kitchen is a mess. We usually just take some time on the weekend to clean it up. Then bam, Monday rolls around, Tuesday piles up, Wednesday we try to clean a bit, maybe half of it and then Friday comes around we usually go out and eat! =P
Also, the other thing I sort of understand, but not really, is making the bed. I did have this mentality of “If I made my bed, that is one thing I completed this morning.” Yes, that lasted for about a week. Why do we keep doing that everyday? We are just going to mess it up and repeat the whole cycle everyday?

OK, I like my bed all made occasionally, but everyday feels like a lot of work. Over the course of let’s say 365 days, suppose it 5 minutes each day, you have spent a little over 30 hours a year making your bed? LOL. Do you still want to keep making it? 😀
Another thing for me is my closet, and organizing clothes. I also do that just once a week.
I mostly buy clothes that don’t need to be ironed, hang up the going-out or work-clothes right after. It is mostly about saving time. The T-shirts and stuff, I roll them and usually don’t fold them right away.
I do however like my living room clean and my home-office =) Hey, I got my priorities!
This is all to save time to do what is more important to me, sometimes it is relaxing after a long day of work, going on a walk, reading, talking to a friend or family, writing posts on Word Press. If I obsess about keeping everything clean all the time, I feel I would be too stressed out to enjoy the little things in life.
Also, the other day on the radio, I heard – people that are a little messy are more intelligent! They are using their time wisely doing what they like. I will chose to believe this for now! 🙂
How about you? How messy are you? Are you a bit messy? Very messy?
Do you like to clean things up right away?
Are you someone that manages to keep things clean all the time? How do you do it? How do you prioritize?
POLL QUESTION: On a Scale from 1 to 5, 1 being the least messy and 5 being the most. How would you rate yourself?
Feel free to write in the judgement free comment section below. Mess away! =)
Stay Curious and Have a Peaceful Day!
