I know I am. At least a little. (CDO) thanks for getting it right.

Um, no, I'm not that bad...well I wasn't until...darn you!

My books aren't alphabetical - don't give me any ideas. Actually, I volunteer at our town library. My books aren't exactly in Dewey Decimal order but they are by topics. At least I haven't put the call numbers on the spi.....hey, that's an idea!

I will confess to arranging my tops by sleeve length (shorter to the left, longer to the right) and then arranging each sleeve group by color. I have my own special quirks.

Come to think of it, I bet a thread dedicated to personal quirks would be a blast!

Come to think of it I never got a catalog with an order. They always come in the mail separately. We're probably all getting one in 6-8 weeks

When I was single and living on my own, I had things alphabetized, arranged by size etc..

When I met my partner and invited him over, he was almost freaked out a bit, he is a generally messy person, not at all organized at home (but at work he is).

I keep my possessions culled with regular trips to the thrift store to keep down clutter and keep stuff organized. He asked if I had a storage unit somewhere with the rest of my stuff,

We've found a way to co-habitate, the kitchen is mine, the den is his, he can be messy, I can be neat and organized!

SO tries to help by emptying the DW for me. When she does, I spend extra time looking for where she put stuff because it's not where it's supposed to be.

This is me (except I'm not a woman):

I'm the organized one, but my partner will reorganize the dishwasher for maximum capacity, . It looks like there is too much in there, but by some miracle it all gets clean.

But when he empties it, stuff is put in all the wrong places. When my mom is visiting, the same thing, I can spend a month looking for stuff!
