Is order your disorder?

Do you:

Arrange liqour bottles so that the amounts remaining are in descending order?
Make sure your daily showers take the same time by using a stopwatch?

Improvise according to a well-developed plan?

Alphabetize your kitchen spices, with only one spice for each letter?
Navigate to your house using a map, in case you get lost?
Arrange the M&Ms in separate plates for each colour?
Label everything to never forget their names, including children?

Reorder clothes in colour-coded fashion, by length, and for the seasons?
Ensure clothes are folded before you put them in the dirty linen hamper?
Take garbage out in labelled bags to make for easier disposal?
Eat your food by chewing a precise number of times?
Nit pick about the exact time that something happens?
Take coffee breaks at the same time each day, even on weekends?
Invite people to meals only if you have checked astrological charts?
Verify that you eat packaged food according to their sell-by dates?
Ensure boxes in cupboards face the same way, arranged by size?

Then you can help me. My life is a mess.
