That is exactly how I feel. And for the past few weeks, since there's been nothing else I could possibly do over again (for the sixth time), I've just wished there was, because it just makes me so happy, heh. Are we weird? For sure. But it's a good weird, 'cause we just love to have our homes in perfect, simple order. I've become a total minimalist and I love it. I now know exactly what we own and could tell someone exactly where any one thing is! That's a good feeling.
I don't have a bunch of little random things in our home anymore. No rubberbands or wee emergency band-aid kit from the drugstgore, or pens out of place. The miscellaneous drawer went bye-bye about a year ago (my daughter was almost 1; coincidence? Nah. :-p But also, I read in It's All Too Much - no junk drawer! heh.). Everything we have is something we use almost every day. And there is nothing "out"- everything has a (pretty much empty) cupboard or drawer to go in.
Side note, I love the Zenhabits site that ppl have linked to on occasion. Great start for reading about minimalism and decluttering, etc. :^)
