I clutter because I’m trying to keep track of notes, magazine articles and other items that I think I might need later. I also have trouble getting rid of those killer shoes I have only worn a few times in the past, but might wear again for the right occasion. We all have these moments where we have a need to keep “stuff” because of our relationship with it.
However, getting organized is good for both your body and mind – having too much stuff can drain and frustrate you, thus making it difficult to get things done. Physical clutter in your surroundings competes for your attention, resulting in decreased performance and increased stress.
It’s hard to keep a clutter free life, but knowing what kind of clutterer you are can help. Take the flowchart quiz below from QuickQuid to help you identify your relationship with your stuff, and give you tips on how to live a clutter-free life. Remember to ask yourself: “Does this item enhance my life?” If not, then you should probably get rid of it, leaving room for you to create and experience life.
