    If It Ain't On The Floor It's Lost!

    A classic example: I just realized my camera is flat. I keep the charger in a box with all it's other bits and things for my phone. I tipped the box out on the spare bed and it will stay there! I like to think of it as an organized mess. I know exactly where everything is (When...

    In terms of tidiness elsewhere I can tidy the

    best I can but somehow it ends to havoc again. My floor is a mess. I never know where to put things! Tidiness means boxes and searching if I want to find anything. I like tidiness but it ends up back to a huge mess again. I actually find tidiness annoying sometimes because it...
