My OCD Habits
Hi Peachies! Are y'all ready to hear some of my deepest secrets. The things I obsess over. Things that drive me crazy and sometimes even make me turn my car around and go home to check on that "thing"?
Are you ready to hear all about
My OCD Habits
I'm more than a little OCD about some things. There are things that flat out drive me insane if they aren't done and then there are some things that I'm ODC about simply because I've been forgetful about them too often in the past.
Let Me Explain
+ My counters have to be wiped down. I wipe them down several times a day with Clorox Wipes and just a wet wash rag.
I can't stand to have dirty/sticky counter tops.
+ My curling iron/flat iron being unplugged. This is one I've forgotten about a few too many times.
I've even turned the car around to check.
Now I'll check it two or three times before I leave just to be sure.
+ My clothes have to be organized in my closet by type and in a particular order. From back to front it's jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, long sleeve shirts, 3/4 sleeved shirts, tee shirts, tanks, dresses, capris, jeans. And each of those has to be organized by favorites. Favorites are closest to the front.
+ My shoes have to be matched up and lined up in my closet, too.
+ I like balance when it comes to decorating. If I have something on the right side of the shelf, there has to be something similar on the left side, too.
+ When I'm locking up my house I have to check, at least twice, to make sure I really did lock the door. Sometimes I have to run back in and make sure I locked the back door, too.
+ Sometimes I count my steps in my head (Yes, I even have a fit bit).
+ If I can't sleep I add all the numbers of the time together & keep adding them until I come to a single digit.
(You really get to sleep fast this way). Sometimes I even add all the numbers on someone's mail box until I find that one digit.
+ At each store I visit often, I have a certain pattern I walk and shop.
I don't think my OCD habits are too out there, except maybe the one about all my clothes in my closet. That one might be borderline insanity but I love organization to the extreme and that's the only space I truly can control. No one else adds chaos and clutter to my closet so it's my little piece of organized Heaven.
What are some of your OCD Habits? Do we share any of the same ones?
