One of the (many;) things I'm really proud about Justin's and my marriage (especially since moving to Oregon) is how clean and organized we've kept our place. Of course, it's a small apartment, but keeping a clean and organized atmosphere in our home is very important to us. We hope to be able to keep this up after we have kids... one day ;) I feel like I'm always rushing out the door in the mornings, so having all of my stuff organized makes it easier for me to find what I need and get out the door for work.
I read a quote a couple years back that has resonated with me when it comes to keeping organized - "a place for everything and everything in its place". When you have specific places for all of your things, it makes cleaning up and organizing so much easier. Our place is filled with organizers under the bed, baskets, desks with drawers, and so on. Wayfair has an endless supply of cute organizing products that will make your mornings more manageable as well!
