No longer together
Do not let others be your reference for who you see in the mirror.
Stop allowing people to hurt you, because you don't love you enough to walk away.
"Sometimes it takes a good fall to know where you really stand."
I always say a prayer before I open the bi-fold doors..
"Oh God...please don't let anything fall down and kill me before I get these doors shut again!"
My dressers are slightly less neat, but there is still organization. Top drawer is bra and panties, second drawer is socks, pantyhose, and scarves, third drawer is loungeware/nightgowns, bottom drawer houses "around the house" teeshirts and shorts.

You go to the store for two things you need. You leave with twenty-four none of which are the original things you went after. You see about a dozen people you know while you are there and talk about everyone and everything. Its a social occassion. Which is why you don't mind having to go back.
But since it took so long, you don't have time to cook when you get home, so you call Papa Johns or Dominoes for pizza.
That's how you do it.
And the closet - well, clean clothes go there. Dirty ones don't. That's as organized as I get.

Closet, I would invite you in to see my closet!
All categories have a subcategory by color. So all pants are together, grouped by color. Dresses have their own section, grouped by color and from (typically) left to right going from casual to dressy. Blouses/tops are grouped by color with long sleeves to the left progressing to sleeveless to the right.
I decide what color I want to wear and the temperature and then I have just a few choices.
I find being organized with daily tasks like dressing and food shopping gives me time for more wool gathering, belly button picking and cloud admiration. I would like to think I am using the time for something more useful, but can't think of any place I am making a big difference (like Einstein who purportedly had multiples of the same outfit).
All that party organizing leaves me free to enjoy the get together with my guests. So to me it is a balance of sorts.
