The Neat Freak
When I first started dating Justin, I realized just how much of a neat freak that I was...and how messy he was! Don't get me wrong here--I'm not trying to throw him under the bus! However, he will admit that he leaves things laying around for days (and even weeks) at a time and it doesn't bother him at all.
Clutter is my enemy. I can't handle it. It's like my brain literally breaks down upon the first sight of it. In college, I always had to pick up my apartment and put all the day's stuff away in its proper place before I could even focus on homework. My neatness might be a bit much, but at least I always know where everything is and even a stranger could find something if they had to! But after combining households with Justin, my preferred level of neatness no longer exists...however, I'm USUALLY able to find what I need to!
Ideally, I would love to have my entire pantry done in these OXO containers. One, it would be such a nice sight everytime I open the door but most importantly, everything would be super organized and easy to identify! But then I could almost guarantee that Justin would come along and undo any order I had established ;-) Gotta love husbands!
