My Messy room

There aren’t many points in my life when I recall having a perfectly tidy bedroom. I think I could count them with both my hands… I have never had a problem with my mess – altough it seemed to be very unorganized, I always ended up finding everything I wanted and always knew where I had left what thing behind, or what pile I had to lift in order to find it. Lately it has gotten a bit out of control though^^.  There have been times I just couldn’t find my stuff anymore, even though I thought I knew I had left it somewhere around that corner. Sometimes I literally even lost things, never to be found again…
I realized  I was in deeper trouble than I thought and wanted to do something about it. I set myself a goal – to have a perfectly tidy room by Christmas 2014. I started taking a picture of my bedroom every night before I went to sleep, to see the so-called-progress… After a while I realized there wasn’t much change to be seen, and my goal to be done by Christmas, what with all the Christmas present preparations to be done, another unreachable thing to do.

I told myself I didn’t want to stress myself out and decided to swap the whole thing into a fun project. It could take me forever, yeah, but wouldn’t it be nice to just see the small progress I’d do day by day? To be honest – sometimes I don’t really see much progress at all… but I know it’s there – like when I managed to file all of my bills and papers into my binders – finally! You wouldn’t be able to see a difference in the pictures, but knowing that I managed made me somewhat feel a bit proudish 😉
So this is my endless straighten-up-my-bedroom project 🙂 My goal would be to have a nice and tidy bedroom sometime during this year (2015). Maybe I’ll manage, maybe I won’t. But at least this keeps me focused on my task and who knows – maybe we can share one or the other tip together? Like, how do you keep your home tidy? Is there any special trick you’re using or anything like that? Keep me updated 🙂

    1. Haha, what a great plan 😀 ! I’m not sure I could trick myself to that plan, but if it works then it’s great! I just try it the hard way – pushing myself and telling me I should keep going… 😉 Thanks for stopping by 🙂


  1. Whoa! Awesome idea!
    It made me remember the times when I would get irritated for having to spend so much time on searching something just because the shelf was a mess.
    Just last week, at mid night I was in tears because I couldn’t find my marksheets of last year.
    I am really inspired and going to take up the challenge myself 🙂

    1. Wow, what a comment – thank you so much 😀 !!! Yeah, do take the challenge and let me know how it’s going :)!!! I know how you felt – I usually end up having to search for things in a rush because I have to run to get the tram or bus, and I HATE it because most of the time I don’t find it, leave without it or even miss my bus… 😦 It definetly has to stop !!! 🙂 Thanks for commenting ❤


  2. I would say I live in “organised chaos” – my room’s a mess, but I know what pile of stuff to look for things. I’ve been trying to de-clutter and am happy I stumbled across your blog (via Opinionated Man). Challenge accepted XD I look forward to seeing your progress 🙂

    1. Hey Sandy, I know exactly how it is… My mum used to be stunned when I’d put some paper and things aside on the floor to reveal what she had asked me for… I usually always know in what spot I can find something! But it’s a bit out of control now as sometimes I can’t find things at all anymore 😉 I’m very glad you took the challenge – keep me posted!!! I’ll drop by your blog in a second 🙂 And yes, be prepared, I think this week a massive change might happen here at my home and I’ll blog about it shortly… 🙂 Thanks for stopping by 🙂 !!!
