I have just read a brilliant post on Unclutterer that offers suggestions on Sharing space and dealing with moments of chaos.

To my horror, I realised that I am guilty of every single attitude that can only make things worse when someone obsessed with putting things away (me) lives with someone with a, how shall I phrase it, ‘more relaxed’ attitude towards tidiness (Dr B.):

  • I nag;
  • I get judgemental;
  • If I reorder myself, I either do it with a ‘How great am I?’ or with a martyr attitude.

Major fail.

The post offers some useful tips and also lists some ways to make joint tidying up sessions fun, but I just cannot see myself wearing the suggested maid outfit.
