I would like to talk to you now about ways of living with people with different levels of organization. I believe everyone has a different comfort level with order, that means some people are very comfortable living in the chaos of clutter, and some are not. I am sure all of you have lived with a roommate or a sibling some time in your life that they haven't had the same style as you. How did you deal with it? It's really no different living with a partner or children. For an example, I bet you can find which level of order you are comfortable with, with this example. Are you most comfortable with a towel bunched up on the floor, or a towel piled a table, or a towel folded a little messy on the table, or are you most comfortable with a towel folded neatly? You probably can pick out one for yourself, and then probably a different level of order for each member of your family. So, how do deal with this? Why should you deal with this? You have to try to create some comfort and harmony in your home. The best way is to really discuss these issues, try to work out a solution, especially for the public areas of your home. Everyone should be conscious that everyone else in the family has to use the public areas; the bathrooms, and the kitchen, and the family room, but then give everyone their own space in the home too where they can be themselves, the best place is their bedrooms of course. The most important thing is communication. You need to work out a plan, discuss it, implement the plan, change it if you need to, and hopefully you will create some order in your home.
