Some Clutter Truths

How Would That Look Like?

Imagine a beautiful store window. But then you can’t focus on any particular item in it.

Think of a beautiful And then clutter covers countertops, cabinets are packed to the brim, and there are boxes all over the place.

Visualize a hotel room with a closet full of empty wire hangers, every inch of the walls has some artwork or painting, blankets (with prints of all colors and different types) are folded on the bed, and bathroom cabinets are full of toiletries to last for three months (with daily use).

What if showroom was full of mismatched hangers, many pieces of clothing on top of each other, and store supplies boxes under the clothes?

Clutter Truths

The above scenarios convey the following truths about clutter:

  • We can’t organize clutter
    • We can’t organize clutter

Why Can’t We Let Go

We often find it hard to let go of things we no longer need or want. This difficulty might come from something when we need it (if we ever need it). But we often don’t even know what we own and end up buying duplicates anyway!

Other times we think discarding some expensive item is throwing money away. But the money was spent when buying that thing, not when tossing it—keeping expensive things that we no longer want, will not bring the money back. And frequently, keeping those things costs us more money than letting those items go.

And the cluttered space prevents us from enjoying the things we do keep. When everything seems unique, then nothing really is.
