"Organization Porn" is a thing now (seriously) and I totally get it. There's something deeply satisfying about symmetry; random items arranged just so by size, or function, or color; and patterns so perfect they make that little OCD part of you breathe a sigh of contentment and shut the heck up for a second.
In the name of calming the voice in your head that wants you to arrange the pencils on your desk by size right now -- or turn the volume to a multiple of 5... or fill in that one off-color piece in an otherwise perfect pattern -- here are 25 photos that will soothe your inner neat freak and scratch that organization itch. Enjoy!

Time spent collection shells? 5 minutes. Time spent organizing them? 5 minutes. Time spent deciding if the fourth shell is smaller, larger, or the same size as the fifth shell? 2 hours and 45 minutes:
I think the tripod needs to go about 3 millimeters to the left... just saying:
This is a photo of the surface of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, or SAHMRI:
The question now is: did someone already go ahead and turn all the nozzles the same direction?
This is just beautiful... no snarky comment necessary:
Oddly enough, the missing piece makes this one. Maybe it's the checkered pattern underneath?
I'd like to introduce this fruit vendor to the previous fruit vendor. A love story in the making:

This is how you take apart your bike when you clean it, right?
Not quite soothed yet? Feel the need to go organize something? Great! Go out and organize a bowl of skittles or arrange your stuffed animals by size, take a picture of it, and upload to 500px with the hashtag #organizationporn attached.
