You can’t imagine how often I am asked the same question when people learn I am a professional organizer.
Sometimes, I can just feel it coming, sort of like smelling rain on the wind. It starts with questions like “So, have you always been organized?” and then moves on to “Is your house organized?” And then the question they really want to know.
“Is your husband organized? Tell me the truth.”
When I reply, “Yes,” I’ll hear “Really? Seriously? Do you organize him?”
Just this once I thought I’d put the answers in writing.
“Yes he is organized. He really is. No, I don’t organize him.”
Here’s the proof.
Somehow, he wandered to the organizing aisle while the paint mixed.
“What’s this?” I ask, holding up the box.
“I figured my belts needed organizing,” he said, as he headed off to do Saturday projects.
A little later in the day, I arrived in his closet with my camera. I finally had proof that he keeps himself organized. Here’s a before photo, of belts wrapped around his shoe storage, and an after photo of his handy work.
This proof is as much for him as it is me. Poor guy. There’s nothing like being married to a professional organizer. He always hears “So, did your wife do this?” Now when he says he did it, he can send them here for proof. Here’s a link to your own Rubbermaid Belt and Tie Organizer.
