Organization is like a Drug

Organization is like a Drug

When I was growing up, my room was almost always a mess. Seriously. I hated cleaning–and I was definitely one of those that felt that if my room was clean, I couldn’t find anything when I needed it. Of course, it would only take me 2 seconds to find something in my own chaos. When […]
