AND, I'd really like to organize my room as a New Years resolution. Happy and a healthy to everyone on SCS.
Try not to beat yourself up too badly as life is just too short! I look in my room and well, even though I could probably open a craft store, I love my stuff and do have it organized--to some degree! Yes, it could definitely use some improvement and further tweaking, to be sure! Yet, I usually can find what I'm looking for with a minimum of fuss; I usually try to practice the motto, "A place for everything and everything in its place".
I am coming to realize, in looking around at my room is that, I have ENOUGH STUFF! I want to learn to use some self-control/restraint and just try to truly enjoy all the goodies I have accumulated, instead of obsessing over the next stamp set I think I must have! And...don't get me going on how many sets I own that have NEVER seen ink! YIKES!!!! (If I tell you, PLEASE don't tell my husband!)
