I've been working on quite a few projects around the apartment all weekend with my parents & Bryan. I'm getting super excited about Spring & my apartment clearly shows it. I'm feeling the inspiration that was leaving me starting to come back & I'm so pumped to have things starting to come together. & I think it has everything to do with the thought of having all of the apartment sorted again & organized & clean-cleaned.
I'm a very messy person, naturally. Like really messy. Bryan says I'm like a hurricane. Everything around me is destroyed & in complete chaos, but in the center, what I'm focusing on, is perfection. Hah, it's not the most flattering of images, but probably enormously accurate.
It's just hard for me to keep things organized, really. (I know you're probably shocked, hah) But it is! So with that in mind, I've decided the best thing to do is tackle it little bit by little bit. One room at a time, one day at a time. I'm starting to clean/straighten (as needed) each room once a week. This sounds a bit silly, as you all probably are incredibly organized & would unfriend me at the state of my apartment. But for me, I have a bad habit of trying to leave the cleaning to the weekend because I hardly have time in the week.
But all that did was make my weekends miserable. It'd take FOREVER to clean everything. So now, I'm assigning rooms to days. Monday is kitchen day. This is where I hardcore clean everything in the kitchen.
Then comes living room day, then office day, then bedroom day (my least favorite to clean/straighten, weirdly enough.) and then kitchen and bathroom all over again. It makes it feel more manageable to me. Spreads it out into bite-sized chunks & helps me stay motivated to doing it.
Does anyone else seem to be this insanely unorganized? Am I the only person who struggles like that to keep an orderly home? What do you guys do to keep it all under control? Teach me your ways! xo
