Do Organize Your Clothes By Color
This is a really great way to work out any OCD tendencies you might have (which, having tendencies is very different than having the actual disorder, obviously) and it will make getting dressed more fun. Because you know who organized his cardigans by color? Mr. Rogers. And we should all be more like Mr. Rogers. And if you're thinking to yourself, "But all my clothes are black!" Don't worry! Then your closet will look the best, because black is the best color.
Don't Organize Your Books By Color
This is going a little too far. Although, well, I will admit that I organize my books by color. But that is because it is the only way I can remember where they are. I am much better at visual memory that textual memory. So I do it because I need to. But it's kind of a tacky thing to do, really, and makes books look like little more than accessories. Once I saw a designer advise that, for aesthetic purposes, you should consider arranging your books so that the spines face the wall and the pages face out. I have never wanted someone to die as much as I did right then. Not the designer. Me. I wanted me to die so I wouldn't have to live in a world like this anymore. Respect your books. That's all I'm saying.
