On a bumper sticker on my way to work: "Organized people are just too lazy to look for their stuff." What a funny new way to look at it!
I'm driven to organize and have been since birth, not out of laziness, mind you, just the opposite, out of an obsessive need to control. However, the upside to organization, as I age, is that it has turned out to be very helpful as I succumb to increasing memory loss.
The trick now is not so much remembering where I've put something, but being able to remember for long enough what it is I am actually looking FOR.
