Would friends and family be more likely to describe you as a "neat freak" or "a bit messy"?

My friends would consider me a meat freak, my family would consider me the opposite

But that is actually quite literal here. No joke in this house. You keep track of your stuff, or it might just be cleaned out from under you.

Or, if they worked their way up, they learned quickly that being neat had rather important implications.

Or because rich people are more disciplined.

@TopsQueen not necessary unless it impedes their normal lives. Now on the other end, hoarders could definitely use some help considering that it can quite literally become hazardous to their health.

Well then, maybe I need a Japanese husband.

Well. If you were to ask my mother, she'd say 'a bit messy.' But if you were to ask most teenage mothers, my room is very neat. The messiest I get is a pile of clothes, an unmade bed, and having a bit of a messy closet.

When I am at work I am an efficient neat freak, but when I'm at home I'm a swamp monster of messy doom

I haven't been able to see the floor in my room in over 3 years, so definitely messy

I have 4 dogs and my car and clothes are almost always covered in dog hair (not like a mink coat but if I don't use a lint roller you can see a few hairs) so I would say that I'd be described as messy. My house at the moment is also a bit messy, not the dogs fault I've been lazy lately.

Thats me too, Dust protects furniture. But my kitchen is clean, and food prep. I have dog toys and a blanket for old boxer to lay on out all the time. Might be clothes in the washer or dryer but never piled up. I'm a great cook but lousy housekeeper.

"A bit" would be the understatement of a lifetime!

When I'm on a project I have stacks of papers and tools scattered around where they'll be most convenient to me. It looks messy, but I know where it all is. I neaten up and put it all away when I'm done. That might be months or even years from now - leave my "mess" alone.

I've always been a neat freak. Even when I was little, my room always had to be perfectly clean and organized.

I have aspirations of being super neat. I'm the only one in my house who does. There is much less stress and more peace if I just let the mess be.

Depends on who your asking. My dad and brother would say messy because I live with them others would say neat

I can't sleep if everything isn't picked up. I can't leave the house if the beds aren't made. Even when the boys were little I had my routine.

My mother is the neat freak and makes everyone around her look like hoarders.

A little messy. That's funny. They'd describe me as a neat freak unless they've just cleaned up for the first time in a quarter. Because by then I have a book or two out and am "a little messy" :)

I try to keep my house clean but I have kids so it doesn't last. I'm not that dedicated.

Messy - I don't lose stuff though - I know exactly at what coordinates and how deep I have to dig to find something ;) And I have a bad hair day every day.
