I am a self-diagnosed neat freak. I love to clean and I love to organize. (If I could have a container, holder and/or label for EVERYTHING, my life would be complete!) And this is my brand new blog for everything NEAT!
I have a toddler in perpetual motion, a packrat daughter, a dog and a disorganized husband... and I hope to share the challenges, trials, errors, rewards and insights of being a bit "too clean obsessive" in a family that's not so in love with neatness. And I am making a promise to clean, rearrange, organize and simplify my life... and help you along the way! SO stay tuned for my journey toward everything orderly and efficient!

Day 85: Even my iPhone has OCD

A friend of mine just showed me that one of the iPhone updates allows you to FILE and ORGANIZE all of your phone applications (apps). WOW! SO... you'd better believe that I took full advantage of this neat little trick!

If you, too, are an iPhone-usin' neat freak, and you haven't yet organized YOUR apps, you will LOVE it! You can categorize everything in neat, little, 12-app squares... and then name each square!

So, instead of having little app icons spread all over the place, taking up every "page" on my iPhone, I now have 1 "regular" page with all of the items that I use most often or just feel like I need to see at any given moment (see picture, above)! And... I have 1 page of "files!"
AND... YES, they are all alphabetized! (I know... I can't help it!) And... all of the contents in each folder are alphabetized, too! See, here is my "Games I Love" file. It's GLORIOUS!

And I am certain it will confuse the heck out of my husband! ;)

Now, THAT's neat!
