Do you consider yourself organized? Like, do you know where your W2 forms are? (Because, you know, Taxes are due soon.) Now a company who specializes in organization has released their rankings of U.S. cities, and finds that while Bostonians have their shit together, Houston residents are kind of a mess.When it comes to Los Angeles, according to doxo, we are doing okay; we tied for 7th place with our California neighbor to the north, San Francisco.

Here's how they came up with their scores:

"The doxo Organization Index (dOI) ranks major U.S. cities based on a number of key organization factors, including recycling rates, individual income tax filing timeliness, junk mail cancellations, concentration of members of the National Association of Professional Organizers, with bonus points awarded to cities for sock drawer organization as well as cities with the greatest number of unique providers and documents uploaded in users doxo accounts."

Sound like you? Or do you need a minute to go dig out a cardboard shoebox of receipts from that hall closet you've been meaning to tidy up?
