In a world of chaos, you must grasp for every moment of peace you can find. Today that peace comes in a series of photographs – not of beach sunsets or still woods, but of something decidedly more man-made: things organised neatly.
It’s the kind of thing you didn’t know you needed until you saw it. A Tumblr, appropriately called Things Organized Neatly, collects pictures from around the Web of… well, exactly what the name says. The “things” may be clothing, food, tools, technology, art supplies – occasionally even living humans are thrown into the mix.
There’s something strangely satisfying about seeing the craziness and clutter of everyday life tamed into a meticulous arrangement. The images are fun, surprising, often impressive to look at, and guaranteed to soothe your inner obsessive. Stroll through the gallery above and see if you don’t feel a sense of calm about the world.
