Nesting or OCD (Obsessive Cleaning Disorder)

I have been accused of, "nesting" since I am cleaning up every little mess and clutter I can locate. But, I am also a neat freak so it is difficult to determine one from the other. lol
I reside with disheveled individuals (my hubby gets offended if I use the term, "messy," which is the same thing as disheveled...yeah, I know. I don't get it, either).
I swear I can look at even the smallest of messes, say a speck or small spot on the floor, shelves, furniture, etc. and can feel the dirt from it, crawling underneath my skin, thus driving me nuts until I tackle it.

I often thought I would make an excellent health inspector, but I would probably be hated by many.

    I'd probably start cleaning. LOL
    Though, my house does not stay clean long with kids, two small dogs, a cat, and a hubby.

    Oh, I will confess there is a storage room in our house. If we ever move, we are getting a home with an attic or basement.

    we have basement... but the stairs are treacherous (an old root cellar) and we don't use it much.

      I always say I don't have OCD, I have CDO because all the letters are in order...like they should be. Lol people used to always ask me if I was nearing and I used to tell them "I've been nesting my whole life" lol I'm like you, I hate clutter...I seriously can't think straight if the house is a mess.

      Now, that's better because they are in order. I used to alphabetize our movies but gave up because there is too many. I do keep them categorized like the book shelves (and my closet). Lol I like labeling things, too.

      I look at clutter and cringe, every time. My hubby drives to work so the van ends up being a pig sty after a few days. And, I even keep a grocery bag in their so he can throw garbage away instead of on the floor. But, sadly, he has not mastered this skill.

      Do you ever go on organization sites for tips or look at the magazines for it? I think I may be obsessed. Lol
