Are You a Clean-as-You-Go Person?

Paint Closet

Are you a clean-as-you-go person? Or do you have a tendency to set things down wherever you are when you finish using them?

I hate to admit it….. I don’t know why I’m like this….. I’m pretty organized in my life, in general….. You see, how I’m having a hard time even saying this?

But it’s true. I have a tendency to set things down instead of putting them away. Most especially when I am working on a project.

Take yesterday for instance. I wanted to move all of my paint supplies into a small closet in my craft room. The closet has an angled wall on the right side, so I had to figure out the angle at which to cut the shelves. That took a lot of measuring and figuring out. Then I had to actually cut the shelves. Next came the installation of the shelving track system, and of course I needed tools to make sure everything was level.

It didn’t take long, maybe an hour or so, and at the end of that time I had a great little storage place for the paint and supplies I use for furniture refinishing or repurposing.

Of course, then I had to think about rounding up my tools and putting them away. The part I just do not like at all.

On the other hand, if I leave them out long enough, my husband will pick up after me.

Such a dilemma.

What about you? Would you be the person who ends up with a closet full of shelves with all of your tools either put away already or right by your side? Or would you be the person who has to hunt for them?

    Lol! I’m a lot like you! I try to be so organized but then I get in a hurry sometimes and I set stuff down and before I know it I end up with a mess and can’t find what I’m looking for when I need it! Even some of my drawers are just an organized mess!

      That’s pretty much it! 🙂 Glad I”m not alone. Once you set one thing down, it’s easier to set the next one down, isn’t it?
