It’s a real pain to be disorganized. You spend a lot of time hunting for your keys; you have to order a replacement birth certificate; you know you must have ten hammers someplace in your house, because you always end up buying a new one when you need it, because you can’t find the ones you already have.
As I was doing my happiness project, I realized that life would be a lot easier if I could easily lay my hands on the little things I need, and I made a big effort to get organized. Would you know where to locate these items in your house? Take this quiz to determine if you’re already organized.
Can you locate…
- your passport
- a corkscrew
- a safety pin
- a flashlight that works
- a functioning alarm clock
- paperclips or a stapler
- a spare set of keys
- your doctor’s phone number
- your tax statements from 2008
- a pair of mittens
- spare AA batteries
If you’re super-organized, you’ll also be able to find these…
- a tape measure
- your high-school or college yearbook
- a pencil sharpener
- a copy of Pride and Prejudice or The Da Vinci Code
- the instruction manual for your camera
- a vase the proper size to hold a bunch of tulips
- an extension cord
- a tube of lip balm
I take a real pleasure in putting things away in exactly the right place, and being able to find them immediately. How about you?
The days are short, but the years are long.
