Canadian Parents has a fun clutter quiz up on their site right now where you can answer 10 questions, score yourself and find out how organized you really are. Now most of us don’t really need a quiz to tell us this information (do we?) but it’s always fun to see what they have to say about us. Quizzes like these bring me right back to my teen years when I would read my Sassy magazine (anyone else remember that one?) and answer the silly girl quizzes to find out what kind of friend I am or what kind of boy I was most likely to marry. Ha!
The funny thing is I gave myself a little heart attack after reading my results from this little innocent clutter quiz. When I went to see what it said for getting 24 points out of 30, this is what it told me about myself:
“Way to go! You’re a not too shabby wanna-be clutter buster! You get major points for trying real hard and you’re well on your way to total clutter-free bliss. Our Clutter Control Club is just what the doctor ordered to put the final touches on your new way of life!”
Ack! WANNA-BE CLUTTER BUSTER??? Excuse me? That doesn’t look so good for an organizing junkie now does it?? I instantly could feel little beads of sweat start to roll down my forehead. How could this be? I started talking to my laptop demanding to know what kind of crazy quiz this was anyway. Doesn’t it know I’m addicted to organizing, that I talk to my containers, that I live, breath and sing organizing? This is not good, not good at all. That’s it, I’m a fraud. This must never get out that the girl high on organizing is really only a wanna-be clutter buster. I can never show my face again, I’ll be ruined! I scrambled to go back to the questions. I had to find out what happened and that’s when I saw it. A question I didn’t see the first time around. I’d forgotten to answer a question!! I’D FORGOTTEN TO ANSWER A QUESTION!! I quickly fixed my mistake and was so relived to see my new score was now 27 out of 30 and this is what it now said about me:
“Congratulations, you have arrived! You’re a clutter-free organization maven! Your consistency and hard work have paid off. Before you pat yourself on the back, is there a hidden storage room where you’re stashing all your junk? You can still benefit from our Clutter Control Club as we tackle those hard to handle spaces.”
Whew…all is right again with the world. I have arrived!! I really am a junkie!! A clutter-free organization maven at that, yeehaw! So what if I don’t make my bed everyday, or have to spend 20 minutes tidying up for guests or find my kid’s toys occasionally scattered across the floor. That’s life. The life of one
slightly crazy organizing junkie and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Now excuse me as I go clean up my hidden storage room :)
So what did the clutter quiz have to say about you?
PS: If you need a little extra help in the organizing department, I see that the Canadian Parents site is also running a 30 days to an organized home feature for the month of April. Click on the picture below to check it out.
PPS: I have no affiliation with Canadian Parents whatsoever, I lost years off my life just for the fun of it :)
