Chattanooga named a “tidy” city


Chattanoogans are “tidy,” according to a new report.

Leaders of SpareFoot, a self-storage business, wanted to find out which cities in the country are the tidiest.

And after collecting data about how much people spend on cleaning supplies, how many maids and housekeepers work in the area and how many square feet of storage space are available per capita, SpareFoot representatives determined that Chattanooga is the fourth-tidiest town in the United States.

Here is SpareFoot’s complete list:

—Albuquerque, N.M.

—Little Rock, Ark.

—Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Fla.

—Chattanooga

—Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Fla.

—Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach, Fla.

—Baton Rouge, La.

—Charleston, S.C.

—Orlando, Fla.

—Spokane, Wash.

According to the report, Chattanooga doesn’t stand out in any one category that officials measured, but it got high scores across all metrics.

Liz Davenport of Albuquerque, a professional organizer who owns Order from Chaos, told SpareFoot.com that one reason for Albuquerque’s No. 1 position may be that the local architecture doesn’t allow for many attics or basements.

“One of the other side effects of not having attics and basements is your clutter is right in front of you,” Davenport said. “There’s no place to hide it, and because it’s right there, it bugs you.”
