All the threads on CPS and clutter got me wondering where MDC mamas (and papas) fall. Here are the three sets of pictures for determining what level your clutter or lack of clutter is!

bedroom pictures

kitchen pictures

So, which level is closest to yours? It's anonymous, so let's be honest!

Even with my super-fast internet connection, it took forever to download.

Less clutter than #1. I'm a neat freak and dh and I are minimalists.

I was cracking up. We're less than picture #1 because I would never allow newspapers to be nicely folded on an end table. That'd drive me crazy lol.

We're a 1. I would go mad if my house was any messier. Of course, throughout the day dishes get left on the table and toys are strewn about, but I HAVE to clean it up at the end of the day.

Normally cleaner than #1, now #1 because we're packing for a month-long trip.

I'm a Number 1.... I don't cope well with clutter. We do live in our house though, so toys are out and things become untidy during the day, but it's always cleaned away in the evening

I voted 1. Although we do have a junk room that is probably around a level 7. That's the yard sale room If we want to get rid of something it goes in there till the yard sale. DH is about a 2-3 so I spend a lot of time picking up crap. Maybe I should vote a 2?

Yep... and I don't put any knick-knacks around the house. If it doesn't have a purpose, it's gone. Dd will get out a set of playthings, but then knows to put them away before she moves on to the next fun thing.

Hmmmm. I voted 1 because there is no way I am a 2, but I might be like a 1.5 when my house is really messy. I never get to 2.

<1

Anything more would drive me crazy.

More clutter than 1. It seems like there should be something between 1 and 2. There is trash on the floor in photo 2. I have clothes hanging off my bedpost and stuff piled up on my dresser, so I'm definitely not a 1.

This reminds me.
One time I was complaining to my sister about how cluttered my house felt even though I'd JUST decluttered it.
She was like "Do you mind if I declutter your first floor for you?" I looked around and told her to have at it.
It was sooo much better when she was done.
I think of myself as below level 1, but sometimes I slip up.
After making the comment about the newspapers laying out in that picture, I looked at the small bookshelf next to me. Eh Gads! It's bad. There's DVDs on it, but other things have found their way onto it out of necessity. Even though I straighten it, one of these days I'm doing another overhaul. I just literally feel awful if my space isn't clean.

I am a 1

however ............ my garage --- well thats a 7 at least !!!:
post #14 of 177
well, between a 2 and a 3...but there is no trash, and stuff isn't piled on beds. hard to explain. dh has too much computer crap in the living room and our room, and it'd displaced some of my stuff. And i'm trying to minimize all my stuff.
post #15 of 177
Less than 1.
post #16 of 177
well, this is certainly embarrassing.

come on, someone has to have a house like mine!!
post #17 of 177
I am between a one and a two. I never have trash on the floor, but I do have more clutter than a one. Clothes piled on dressers, etc. the kitchen usually has some dishes in the sink.
post #18 of 177
Golly, I'm going crazy thinking my house is a disaster area because we're moving and so everything is out and about, but even then it's about a 1. I feel so good now.

I'm back to add. My bedroom has some serious clothing clutter going on around the perameters of the room. We don't have a dresser at the moment, so our clothing is in bins on the floor. The unhung stuff. Then there's the toddler bed in there with all the blankets piled up on it. Our room looks awful even though I just cleaned it. It's supposed to be very zen like in there. I'm going to have to restore it to it's "should be" state. Which is going to take an afternoon to do.
When I went to do laundry, I took stock of the basement. It's a level 2. We only use it for storage and doing laundry though. About once every season I borrow a truck from someone and unload/clear out the basement. I've known that it's needed done this Spring and didn't do it.....so now it's really needing it. Meh. I don't much care.

Don't worry, I'm not a one!

And if I had to judge my hall closet... well, it's hard to open the door sometimes. All the junk gets tossed in there. I try not to think about it much!
