I am sitting in a small room, laughingly called my study/craft room/occasional bedroom, surrounded by boxes of food and kitchen equipment. We are having a new kitchen fitted later this week so until that happens, my ideas of being organised are just dreams. I can't wait to put things in their proper places. I will also use the exercise to get rid of "stuff" which has already been helped by the bottom dropping out of a box when I picked it up resulting in the breakage of several items of crockery which are not essential.
Normally, I too rank my fiction books in alphabetical order of author's surname and dvds are also in alphabetical order - it just makes it so much easier to find what you are looking for.
I have learned not to tidy up after Mr Ara because he leaves things out of place to remind himself to do something.
Maybe by next year I will have an organised house.
