Just wondering- anyone out there a reformed messy person? I love a clean house, and I do a “big clean” on the weekends but it NEVER makes it past wednesday. I’m due in July with a baby bee and getting married next year, and although hubby to be is super fantastic and loves me flaws and all I want to be a good mom and not lose my baby in a pile of laundry or craft supplies! I work so hard on the weekends and enjoy sitting back in a clean, dusted organized home but then I’m a wrecking ball as soon as I get going on a project and mess everything up again! I know it should be as simple as putting the stuff I use back where it belongs but it creeps up on me (honestly in an afternoon I can destroy the whole house while I’m in a creative mood looking for stuff to do)
Suggestions, or other anonymous miss messys out there willing to confess? LOL I need inspiration!

Hello, my name is GreenBean and I have a problem. I’m messy. Not dirty mind you, just messy. There are shoes kicked off by my front door, sometimes dishes stay in the sink a few days, and that towel that needs to be washed? The floor is doing a damn fine job of holding it in a steady place for me. Thanks, Mr. Floor!
Thankfully the ways I am messy and the ways SO are messy are opposite, so we balance eachother out and between the two of us we manage to keep it fairly tidy. Now that we live together, we are both more motivated to stay tidy but we both work long, oddball hours and it doesn’t always happen. I tend to shrug it off and do a big clean on weekends, like you do (Sunday is officially chore day in our house!)

@MissGreenBean: Ha! omg you’re my housekeeping twin! LOL That’s exactly the way to describe it. Not dirty, just messy. Like my toilets and sinks and shower sparkle but theres damp towels on the floor and curlers all over the counter sort of deal. Thank you for your confession 🙂 LOL

oh, I’m in the same boat (although not pregnant, congrats!). I’m naturally super messy as in just dropping things where I feel like it and being a hardcore procrastinator.
What I found out about me is that when I have a system that I like, I use it. I’m working on giving everything I own it’s place, which sucks because we don’t have much storage, but I gradually try to change things up. My closet is the bane of my existence because I never put my clothes away. It’s just too awkward/small and I know I need to come up with a solution, I just don’t know what it’ll be yet.
I try to organize things while thinking about how I use them. I had my nailpolishes the bedroom with my vanity, for example, but I always paint my nails in the living room while watching TV. Needless to say, they ended up all over the apartment. Now I keep them in a bin that goes into a shelf in the living room, much easier.
