So many things you ladies have written is normal to me.... I must be OCD! Lol... Or CDO, it's like OCD but in alphabetical order the way they should be bahaha
I have big pump shampoo and conditioner containers and I have to have the same amount every time I was my hair!
I too hang my clothes in a certain area/way on the clothes line, but I don't use the same coloured pegs (like I said about my mum in a previous OCD thread lol)
All clothes are hung in the wardrobe the same way, in the right way, in styles ie singlets, tees, 3/4 sleeve etc, and each style is colour coded lightest to darkest.
I have to lock my car as soon as I get out... Even if I'll be standing near it for a bit.
Everything has a place in the shopping trolley and on the checkout.
I was my dishes in order.... Bottles, plates, glasses, Tupperware, cutlery and then big things that I can stack on top
When I use paper towel I have to use 2 pieces at a time
I'm sure there's heaps more... I'm a bit strange lol

I have a couple.
I check the locks on the front and back doors about 50 times a night, to the point I've broken the handles of the 2 front doors and the deadbolt on the back door. DH gets so annoyed as he's forever fixing them.
I also check the oven and stove tops a million times after using them. To the point I have to get out of bed several times a night. I've even driven home from work before to check.
I hate it, it really brings me down sometimes how much stupid small things interupt my life

I also arrange my wine glasses upside down on the shelf 4 in the back row, 3 in the next, 2 and then one at the front in a triangle shape. I loose it if dp puts them back wrong. I broke a glass yesterday so now it's not even waaaa!

The Dish washer has to be packed a certain way mugs together with handles all facing he same way and like items together. I have to fix it if it's not right even at work!
Cutlery is stacked on top of each other with mains and entree cutlery top to tail (knives really annoy me though!.
My lingere draw has seen the work girls laugh at me when shown a photo. I have my bras stacked in colour order cups folded in. Undies are lined up too with 6 piles - 2 rows G-strings lacy and plain, cheeky bum lacy and plain, full brief lacy and plain then I just have gathers and suck em in stuff on side.
I'm also a 'the toilet paper has to go over' girl just looks better!
I think that's enough OCD from me for tonight

I do many things mentioned above.
Also, in the dishwasher, cutlery has to keep to its own compartments in the cutlery basket. Forks all in one section, spoons in another etc. much easier to put away. But DH puts them all anywhere. Grrrr.

I also go to the toilet before going to bed, then I will usually play on my phone or read a book for 10 - 15 min but then I need to make sure I go again before I fall asleep.
I need to make sure all our cordless phones are on thier bases before I go to sleep, and if i hop into bed and see that the light is not on on the base beside the bed, i need to get up and find the phone to put it on its base before I can go to sleep.
I have also been known to go back to work, in the middle of the night after being in bed to check that a door is locked, heater is off etc.

[QUOTE=tormy;6749855]I'm really funny about touching raw meat. Usually I'll wear gloves or use tongs so I don't have to touch it...and I have to cut every bit of fat off the meat before I cool it.
Yes this is me also!!
I also have to smell every bit of food before every bite.. I try my hardest not to and end up doing it more lol..
