I really struggle with organization and keeping my apartment neat. I hate that people have to call me a couple of hours in advance if they are coming over because I don't want anyone to see my house messy (thank you mom aka Mrs. Whiteglove for giving me this complex). When I do have company coming it's always this huge effort to get my place into shape and I'm usually anxious just from the stress of doing it. When the structure is there though I can follow it pretty good but that structure has to be there because left to my own devices I'm completely oblivious to my surroundings. Ironically though, I do actually being a neat and orderly environment. The thought of doing it regularly without having someone other than myself to do it for kind of overwhelms me sometimes. I just don't seem to be able to get out of my head enough to create it for myself. So I'm wondering, has anyone here mastered this and managed to turn it around without someone being close by to keep the structure intact?
