Neatly in Order

It’s time for another Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, this week’s theme is Order.

Things stacked or put neatly side by side, in rows or columns.

One of my favourite part of going to stores is seeing how neatly everything is organised. If you walk into a store and see a huge pile of clothes or books just thrown everywhere, would you buy or browse there? Probably not. Unless it’s a sale bin or something, then order goes out the window.



Clothes hung up neatly, ordered by brand, colour and size.




Cards and books lined up neatly in piles and rows, which sometimes I will straighten out if I’m browsing around and something strikes me asΒ really out of place.


Bakeries are another place where you can find workers who spend lots of time making the goods line up neat and tidy. I wonder if it bugs them as much as it does me when someone takes bread from the middle of the pile? Maybe just me?

When it comes to my own baking, I try ridiculously hard to make sure they’re all lined up evenly on the tray. Or even when I’m taking the photos of them, I want them to look neat and tidy.


Sometimes you can find order in your family home, where someone will spend ages lining up photos on shelves to make sure they’re all spaced apart evenly, and in good order.

Order just makes what’s on display a lot more appealing, satisfying, and easy to find.Β But you know just cause one can appreciate order, does that mean every aspect of their life will also be tidy? Well..

Nobody’s perfect right? πŸ™‚


  1. Love being orderly! It reminded that I have to go through a bunch of papers that I have been putting off bc eek! At least they’re being kept in an organized folder for now! lol

    1. Haha, it is really nice having things in order. I hope you get round to those papers soon πŸ˜› πŸ™‚

      1. thank you, me too! haha

  2. Ugh I love order! Even just the thought of planning my week out in a daily planner is therapeutic!

    Thanks for sharing; you have great content and I’m looking forward to future posts.
Come visit if you get a chance!
    Have a good day!

    1. It really is! I do the same with my journal πŸ™‚
      Thanks for coming by Mena, I’d love to check out your blog too πŸ™‚

  3. Angela baby! Tidy up that room! 🀣🀣🀣
    But yep. I’m an order-fanatic with the best of them! ❀️

    1. Haha XD that’s my room from my teenage days. I’m happy to say it’s gotten better since then (a little)

  4. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Our imperfections are what makes us special and unique. *but you SHOULD tidy up that room!*🀣🀣
    I love order too.

    1. It was my old room as a teenager! I’m happy to say I’ve gotten better at tidying since then. I just love looking back at what a bomb site it is πŸ˜‚

      1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I know. I saw that in one of your responses to the comments above. Just wanted to make you say it again. πŸ˜‚
        How did you manage to live there?

        1. I shared it with my sister, and to be honest. We were fine in it XD We just walked through everything πŸ˜€

          1. Ha ha. Lool. Pretty much like my sister and I.

  5. Hahahaha I love order as well! My room is so messy right now I’m avoiding it πŸ˜‚ but I do have to go clean it ASAP!!!

    1. Its funny how we can love seeing things neat and orderly but at the same time neglect that in our own room πŸ˜‚

      1. Hahahaha we might just be in denial when it comes to our rooms sometimes!

  6. I love to be orderly. I used to be orderly at home and work. I’m more at work. I have to clean and put everything perfectly in order in the morning and my whole day is messed up.

    1. There is some satisfaction to be gained by kewping everything neatly organised πŸ™‚

  7. I gots the disorder too πŸ˜‰ But it works for me as I think it does for you. So here’s to a world of order, and most importantly, cookies in neat columns and rows. Oops did one just get gobbled up?

    1. Its just so satisfying to see things nearly sorted. Especially with cookies. You can have one, I’ll just make more πŸ˜„

      1. Ah but I do not stop at one πŸ˜‰

  8. I can be extremely obsessed about things being in order, as well. But sometimes I let my room become messy and messier until I can’t take it anymore πŸ˜‚

    1. Me too! I’m glad you can relate πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

      1. Hi5! 😁
