Tidy space, tidy mind

I don't know about any of you, but I'm one of those people who live by the title of this post, tidy space, tidy mind. I find that when things around me are tidy and organised, I can think much better. Now, if you were to ask my parents, they would definitely say that I'm not a tidy person - they are wrong. I love being tidy and honestly, I have some form of OCD when it comes to organisation. The thing is is that I simply don't have the time to keep everything spic-and-span.

My whole life is spent doing something - weekdays I'm out of the house from 7:30am until 5pm at school, I often work a few evenings during the week, Saturdays I work most of the day & will more often than not spend the night at my boyfriend's house along with the majority of Sundays. Add things such as homework, driving lessons, meals and household chores into the mix and I am home, awake and not busy for about 7/8 hours a week, which if you think about it, is nothing at all! This is why I things aren't always tidy.

I do, however, love things to be tidy, and I really do enjoy doing the tidying (I know, freak or what?!). I have decided that from now on I am going to take just a little bit of time every couple of days to keep things organised. Just little things like de-cluttering my bedside table or my desk, picking up the few clothes that may have 'accidentally' missed the laundry basket, things like that. I think that by doing things like that I will be able to keep both my environment and my mind clear, helping me to focus on other things in life such as school, work and relationships.

I know that this post has probably sounded super cliche, but it's true for me. What do you do to keep your life more organised?
