How organised are you?

Do you have good organisation or hardly at all ?
Does ‘SA’ make it difficult for you to organise or does it not?

Day to day things.

Pretty bad, but I'm good at winging it if I have too.

And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I'm very bad at it. Plus I seem to have some weird sort of OCD thing going on as well, don't know what's happening there. It takes me ages to get organised and moving.

My wife is like the opposite of me - she likes to re-organise everything in her house to within an inch of it's life. (over and over again) It's terrifying.

A little too much to be honest. I think learning to let go is good.

I tidy up but 5 minutes later it is a mess again. I heard a man in the hallway today and thought it was the landlord coming to empty the electric coin meter. I was like quick tidy haha but it wasn't him, phew. Someone said to me when I mentioned that I cannot keep my place tidy said that's a bit autistic. Before anyone ever comes over they need to let me know in advance so I can tidy up lol. The landlords just come whenever, they just turn up, and one time I have been in and I was so embarassed ha. He was making conversation with me and I was just thinking when is he gonna leave. He said that the cleaner who usually cleaned the communal bathrooms and hallways had contracted Covid-19, so they got another company in.

So long as I can remember where I place an item, however inconvenient, I'm fine.

I am horrifically disorganized but diligent so I end up turning the simplest tasks into huge productions. gotta keep the goal in mind, develop tunnel vision to a certain extent. it's hard, and it's not for everyone.

I'm so disorganized that I sometimes actually prefer it if things are unorganized, for aesthetic reasons.

I enjoy organizing but I don't like cleaning. Organizing is fun. Like what goes in which closet. How everything should be arranged in the kitchen cabinets and fridge. How furniture should be arranged.

Actual scrubbing is a drag. I hate doing the dishes, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, dusting, doing the laundry. Boring and tedious. When I was growing up our apt/house was like that. Organized but not terribly clean.

I like reorganising things and trying to keep them that way, but if I get a few new things at once, sometimes I'll leave them on my chair or table for a little bit too long while I try to find a good place to put them.

To be well organized in tight spaces, you either have to spend a lot of money or you have to be really creative. I have lots and lots of junk and pretty much nowhere to put it. I have one small closet. I have no drawers or cabinets. I have a bed that is probably bigger than it needs to be that takes up a huge chunk of my room. I also have a desk that's probably bigger than it needs to be taking up a huge chunk of space. And the chair!

I barely have room to walk. Things can be somewhat organized in here in an "organized chaos" sort of way but it never lasts long because it's super high maintenance. Anything I need tends to be buried and requires moving other stuff out of the damn way and then putting everything back. I take it and use it and then have to move everything again and put everything back again.

And right now, my room is a super disaster area because every now and then I take my PC apart and clean it and put it back together. My PC weighs probably 30 pounds and is pretty big. Everything about it is big. I literally have pieces of it under the bed temporarily because I don't have any flat surfaces left to put stuff. The PSU is on one side of the room, the motherboard is on top of the refrigerator.

Wildly disorganized. About halfway between a hoarder and a slob. But considering hoarding runs in my family, I'm not doing too bad. I have siblings who are worse.

Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there.

I'm cursed with both the hoarding and sorting/categorizing aspects of OCD (diagnosed), and they're in a constant struggle with each other. In some things I'm quite organized, in others I'm a complete mess. ;_;

My messes often have a trace of order to them, though. "I know that book is somewhere in that particular stack...and I'm pretty sure I last saw that missing item in the general area of this pile of junk."

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

That's sort of what happens with me. I like things to be slightly messy but they have to stay in the "right" place. Even books etc need to be at the correct angle on my desk - I don't like them straight but they have to look right. It actually drives me a bit nuts tbh.
