8 Reasons Why I Love Being Organized
organizingu.com

Growing up and going to school, we were all taught, among various subjects, useful skills. Organization was a big one. While many kids struggled with being tidy and organized, for some reason I just got it. Not only did I understand what it meant to be organized, but I liked organizing things and seeing the final product. Fast forward many years, I am now 19 and still love having my things neat and organized. Here are eight reasons why I love being organized.

1. It is very rewarding.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006016280749976-1297830401_11018348.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=797&h=9311ba0decb5d6bfe5df91110a07d2947f545a014914df9a078a7722854dfe02&size=980x&c=641916221 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006016280749976-1297830401_11018348.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D797%26h%3D9311ba0decb5d6bfe5df91110a07d2947f545a014914df9a078a7722854dfe02%26size%3D980x%26c%3D641916221%22%7D" expand=1]

I don't know what it is about it. Maybe it's the process of figuring out how to organize things, or maybe it's that it is pretty time consuming. Nevertheless, seeing that finished product is priceless. When that closet is nice and organized it feels amazing, especially knowing I did it all by myself. It feels good to know that all that hard work paid off, and that makes me very happy (maybe more than it should).

2. I know where to find anything.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006055704159977-284231154_safe-image.php.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=985&h=61c7d83661f725732850d877663d59c5f9049eec2ae8c395757c7fe5ae135c87&size=980x&c=3773672920 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006055704159977-284231154_safe-image.php.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D985%26h%3D61c7d83661f725732850d877663d59c5f9049eec2ae8c395757c7fe5ae135c87%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3773672920%22%7D" expand=1]

Having my stuff organized means that everything has a particular place. When organizing, I usually create a system that makes sense to me so that I know where things are. This means that when I'm looking for something, it can easily be found and I don't have to scramble and go crazy looking for it.

3. It saves a lot of time.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006088464509226-716782686_tumblr_static_the_clock_is_ticking.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=279&h=874dc3044768ff033063335766ca6a1aec59860f46b7f15a30ba7ca4cfc1d048&size=980x&c=3462122241 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006088464509226-716782686_tumblr_static_the_clock_is_ticking.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D279%26h%3D874dc3044768ff033063335766ca6a1aec59860f46b7f15a30ba7ca4cfc1d048%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3462122241%22%7D" expand=1]

This goes hand in hand with knowing where to find stuff. When everything is neat and organized, and things can be easily found, it saves a ton of time and makes tasks more efficient. I don't have to waste time looking for things, and I don't have to stress about having "lost" something I need. This is very helpful amidst busy schedules and stressful days.

4. It saves space.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006097183879967-126373661_large.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=454&h=48de92d6bd333887ba16d6c78179b8a2e1004664d8ff766607c4aaf2976e0d78&size=980x&c=713816767 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006097183879967-126373661_large.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D454%26h%3D48de92d6bd333887ba16d6c78179b8a2e1004664d8ff766607c4aaf2976e0d78%26size%3D980x%26c%3D713816767%22%7D" expand=1]

When things are organized they tend to use less space because they are neatly put away as opposed to being messy and clumped somewhere. Less used space means that there is room for more stuff. And who doesn't want more stuff?

5. Being organized also means being tidy.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006100918824461-1048349168_mary_poppins_tidy_up.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=804&h=d321ce1a537f33ad2c708f80b1127ec86afa518b460c64e8fc94a7b413ba3778&size=980x&c=856567493 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006100918824461-1048349168_mary_poppins_tidy_up.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D804%26h%3Dd321ce1a537f33ad2c708f80b1127ec86afa518b460c64e8fc94a7b413ba3778%26size%3D980x%26c%3D856567493%22%7D" expand=1]

For someone who loves organization as much as I do, tidiness is a perfect bonus. What's nice about it is that it comes naturally with organization, so I don't even have to try to be neat. Again, it's rewarding and looks really good.

6. Organization also means being clean.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F6360061099326611901571505251_cleaning.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=502&h=6a5b4b786cb05981e9acc12c4ed3e15194f60ee5b1f7da166a54d26b7f2cb8ba&size=980x&c=159492951 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F6360061099326611901571505251_cleaning.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D502%26h%3D6a5b4b786cb05981e9acc12c4ed3e15194f60ee5b1f7da166a54d26b7f2cb8ba%26size%3D980x%26c%3D159492951%22%7D" expand=1]

It's kind of like a package deal: not only do you get organization, but you get cleanliness and tidiness too. You really can't be organized and messy at the same time, so it works out great.

7. Everything looks better when organized.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F6360061115749787421980853972_635922832360675432-1763852986_leslie%2520knope%2520organized.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=739&h=584432f26f4255adf5a9ac5c134df86a8d0f349168e93329d3ce527eafb352af&size=980x&c=634739247 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F6360061115749787421980853972_635922832360675432-1763852986_leslie%252520knope%252520organized.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D739%26h%3D584432f26f4255adf5a9ac5c134df86a8d0f349168e93329d3ce527eafb352af%26size%3D980x%26c%3D634739247%22%7D" expand=1]

This is a combination of everything I've already said. Not only does organizing feel great, but it looks great as well. I love taking a step back and admiring my hard work after spending hours organizing. I don't really know how to explain it otherwise, but it makes me feel all happy and warm inside.

8. It's fun.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F04%2F636006117622763366-1991354974_i-love-it-yelling-girl.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=47&h=7bd9fc09316023ad2bf24a9c1dbc2cdd9bf4d288628615bfc260a22d2472085f&size=980x&c=537385263 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F04%252F636006117622763366-1991354974_i-love-it-yelling-girl.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D47%26h%3D7bd9fc09316023ad2bf24a9c1dbc2cdd9bf4d288628615bfc260a22d2472085f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D537385263%22%7D" expand=1]

OK, so this probably doesn't apply to everyone. Maybe it barely applies to anyone. And maybe this is a sign that I'm a little bit of a neat freak, but that doesn't change the fact that I actually enjoy organizing things. It's kind of therapeutic and fun to go through all my stuff. It feels good to get rid of things I no longer need and replace them with new stuff. Also, there is no better feeling than seeing the finished product.

All jokes aside, I do think that organization is an important skill to learn and is very helpful. It's not necessary to be as passionate (or crazy) about it as I am, but it's worth giving it a try because it makes life a lot easier.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
