I am not an organized person. I never have been, and try as I might, it will never come naturally to me.
I have accepted this. I really didn't have much choice BUT to accept it.
This is made worse by the fact that I enjoy doing all sorts of different hobby things. The current BIG one, which has taken over most of the others, is crochet. I have tons of yarn, tons of ideas, notsomuch time, and even less natural ability to keep it from taking over the HOUSE as well as my free time.
Add in the school stuff, and two VERY active children and my first floor looks like a disaster zone.
Soooooooooooooo, in the next month or so, I am planning on getting things cleaned up. Once we can afford to, the school area/my desk are getting a major overhaul, but I need to get stuff thrown away/donated/stored before that can happen.
I just hope the overhaul can come sooner rather than later. Thing 2 has taken to climbing up on Thing 1's desk and turning the monitor on and off because it has a button. (We've had to disable the power buttons on all of the computers because Thing 2 has a major love of buttons, and my desk chair can't be pushed in because otherwise he wreaks havoc on my entire desk)
But the current motivator is to at least get things manageable in the meantime.
When I can drag myself away from my crochet. (I seriously have five skeins, 3 different TYPES of yarn on my desk, including one attached to a project I'm currently working on)
