One of my "signature" problems is my inability to keep my apartment tidy. On the weekends I'm optimistic and can do marathon cleaning/organizing sessions but by the next Friday things are all over my room. I can't seem to maintain on a daily basis-not because the thought of throwing away a candy bar wrapper or putting my socks in the dirty clothes is a scary one, but because I often don't have the thought at all! It just doesn't occur to me until things are stacked up in piles. And then I clean and breathe a sigh of relief and realize how much better I like a tidy house. Today I was deep in thought as I opened up a wrapper for some tooth whitening strips. I was thinking how sad it was that a lot of the clutter on my sink was just trash that could easily be thrown away. I decided to throw away my trash from this evening....and accidently put my unused strips in the garbage while thinking so hard about cleaning up.
Does anyone have any tips/tricks/input that's helped you? An iPhone app, a post-it note, a weird method you use to make yourself do small tasks, anything?
