I am most definately a leaver

I actually don't know how to put stuff away and struggle tidying past a certain point because I just can't think where some things SHOULD or COULD go


Ditto.

Houses weren't built to contain people and all the stuff we need.

I'm a putter - I can't stand things left around....cupboards and drawers were invented for a reason.

It does drive my husband mad and yes I do have a touch of the OCD. I have to tidy the house everyday, and when I wasn't working (when the children were babies) I would hoover/polish/clean the house from top to bottom every day. I have learnt to calm down a bit but still everything has a place...Put it in it!!

I've just told Mr CS what this thread is about and his response.... "you just f*cking leave everything" so I guess that means I'm a leaver LOL. 

Have to agree that I'm a leaver but I do have a weekend every now and again where I blitz the house and put everything away...normally when my underwear drawer is empty cos the clean washing is all piled up in the spare room (done by Mr CS).

I'm a putter and mr B is definitely a leaver - sometimes his clothes are returned washed even when they didn't make it to the "magic basket" in the bedroom, I think he thinks the fairies do it

I'm a leaver, although I do having putting moods

Tidying up usually causes more problems than it solves. I'd love to be able to just naturally tidy up as I go but it's never going to happen.

I'm a leaver, but my boyf is definitely a putter.  I get fed up with him nagging, he gets fed up with me leaving stuff where it's handy.

My first husband learned the hard way that things not in the washing basket don't get washed, the day he had no clean shirt to wear to work.  Given that he had about 15 shirts, all of which were piled on a chair in the bedroom.......................

Well it really does depend on the day for me, some days I will leave thngs just lying about and others i will put everything away as soon as i'm done with it, perhaps more a leaver than a putter but some days everything does have it's place!
