Photos of Things Organized Neatly Provide a Soothing Feast for the Eyes

Things Organized Neatly is a perfectionist’s dream come true. Curated by Indiana designer Austin Radcliffe, the blog features images of various items meticulously organized in tidy rows. Arranged according to size, color, type, or plain aesthetics, the objects range from burnt matches to deconstructed gadgets to minuscule pieces of food.

Amidst all the chaos and clutter of everyday life, Things Organized Neatly stands out as a soothing haven for the neat freaks of the world. Gazing at the perfectly aligned displays is an oddly meditative experience, with each image providing some much-needed relief for those in need of some clean, orderly, visual satisfaction.

According to Radcliffe, neat collections of items are so aesthetically pleasing and a trend of contemporary design because of the deliberate nature of organizing. In an interview with Print Mag, he says, “I think that taking time and care to adjust and arrange objects shows a certain time dedication, and therefore implies importance on the objects. The person arranging the items is inherently exercising his or her aesthetic preferences. Even if the objects are arranged scientifically, by size for instance, a pattern reveals itself. So neatly organizing a subject will give visual interest, and even function to the viewer. Precision is beauty.”

Late last year, she snapped a sweet picture of the furry friend looking at the world while wrapped in a blanket. A couple of months ago, the other cat joined in and Berkleef tried to repeat success with another cloak. It worked! And according to the 21-year-old: “They didn’t mind.
