I am trying to figure out if I’m deficient somehow. I have tried to come up with myriad types of “organization” methods…and not a single one has worked so far. I don’t know what the problem is; whether I’m delusional in my attempts or it’s simply that none of these is a right fit for me, ergo, they all fail.
I am surrounded by clutter and chaos and I don’t know how to tame it and/or deal with it. I’m trying to convince myself that I have to focus on one small part of the mess at a time — trying to view the big picture just makes me hyperventilate. But even then, I don’t have a clue as to where to start. I look at my living room (for example) and think, well, these things all need to go in places X, Y and Z… but X, Y and Z need to be reorganized before the extra items from the living room will even fit…
Really, it just makes me want to curl up in a corner with a bottle of Peach Schnapps and cry. Honestly, I don’t know what to do. I have to remind myself that there are no quick fixes. This chaos did not truly appear overnight; it will take time to get it under control. I just hope my sanity lasts until then.
Do you have any tips for taming the household beast?
