Before I leave on vacations, I have to clean my house. I don’t know if it’s a peace of mind issue or what the motivation is behind it, but I always do it. The benefit is that I return home to a bed with clean sheets and fresh towels in the bathroom and uncluttered surfaces throughout the whole house.
I clean when I have to make a difficult decision. If I need to mull things around in my head, I find that tedious chores are what I do first.
I also organize when there are things in my life I can’t control. When my grandmother had a stroke, I spent two days organizing my office closet.
I’ve heard of students who clean when they are procrastinating doing their homework. Is that you? Do you have quirky organization or cleaning sprees? Tell us about your cleaning and organization quirks in the comments!
