Saturday 9: Organize This

Here's my answers to this week's questions from the Saturday 9 Meme:

1. Are you an organized person?
Organized, yes; tidy, no.

2. What is one thing about your home that has to be just so or it drives you crazy when it comes to organization?
It always has to be in the same location. Apart from that proviso, I'm willing to give it a lot of leeway.

3. Do you have one little nuance about your organization that most people consider to be a little over the top? What is it??
I have a tendency towards organized chaos (hey, why fight entropy?) which some people consider to just be laziness on my behalf (when in fact there's also a certain amount of apathy involved).

4. What is your favorite organizational tool? (bins, closet organizers, etc.)
My brain, my computer. I also quite like the floor, which tends to be a lot nearer, and therefore convenient, than other storage places. Sure, you can only store things there for so long before the floor gets full, but then you just start building a new level, looking for the right-sized gaps for whatever you need to deposit there, like a big giant three-dimensional game of Tetris (which quickly turns into Jenga when you've got to find something).

5. Where is your favorite place to buy organizational needs?
I prefer not having organizational needs. Sure, I could buy storage boxes and the like, but there's nowhere to put them amongst all my junk.

6. Are you more organized at work or at home?
At work.

7. Are you more or less organized than your significant other?
I haven't got a significant other, but if I did I'd hope she'd be more organized (which this meme seems to equate with tidy for some reason) than me. Also, probability practically demands that that would indeed be the case.

8. Does your significant other help or hurt organization?
Her continued non-existence definitely doesn't help with the tidying up.

9. What is the most important recreational items that you organize?
My CDs (although organizing them only amounts to feeding them into iTunes).

Good answer on #2.
#7: You're right. Organized and tidy have nothing to do with each other.

Thanks for the comments, Rikki and NurseExec (glad that I'm not the only one who mistakes tidy for organized) and to you too Blog In The Rough - I'm sure we'd get along well, at least until the floor gave way :)

#2 is hysterical! Yeah, I like mine in the same location too! LOL

The floor is a great place for stuff too.
