Cleaning or Organizing? What's harder for you? - Page 3

post #41 of 47
Oh my gosh, if only there was some sort of exchange program where we could pair up ... you organize my closets and I'll mop your floors -- I would totally sign up.

I hate organizing, probably because I am bad at it -- I get overwhelmed and frustrated and just end up sweeping things into a box and shoving it in the back of a closet somewhere, or I start projects and don't finish them.

Cleaning, on the other hand, to me, are simple tasks with easily break-down-able steps that result in noticeable improvements. Maybe I'm just a manual labour gal at heart, but give me cleaning any day over organizing.

interesting thread!

interior design is my background so organization is a passion. :

cleaning, on the other hand, i would GLADLY pay someone else to do. while they totally go hand in hand, i do not ENJOY cleaning....at all. i keep a very clean house because i can't stand to live in filth, however, i would happliy hand that job over to someone else......someone that could do it so i could concentrate on the things i actually enjoy going, like organizing, decorating, etc.

Organizing. But only because I have a husband to consider and not enough money to organize things the way I really want to.

Cleaning is easy, I do it every day : (well okay I'm not that happy about it but at least I do it and it doesn't drive me totally nuts)

i hate doing both. i don't know if i can adequately describe how much i dislike both cleaning and organizing. neither is harder than the other for me, and i'm good at doing both; they each have equal pain-in-the-butt factor, just in different ways. however, i also dislike being grossed out in my own home, and not being able to find things is the mental equivalent of chinese water torture for me. so i do the absolute minimum i can get away with while cursing every minute of it, to get the minimal satisfaction of not having to do it again for a little while.
