PS I should have added to my previous post that I do have a couple of areas where I have organized chaos: My desk is one for sure! I love this area. My books, journals, paper & writing instruments, ramblings all in one area (for the most part...some is beside my bed). I don't label things (anywhere for that matter). Other places would be, a few drawers that I will stuff things into. I don't think I am obsessive compulsive; I do allow room for just setting things down. Though they can't stay there for a long period of time. I will go a week depending on what it is then they need to go back to their home.
Yes, HorribleAesthete, I have grasped the less is more concept a few years back. It is nice not having so much clutter!
