Are you a clutter bug?Are you a clutter bug?

Many people become clutter bugs without ever realizing it because it can happen slowly over time as we naturally accumulate things.  This is especially true for those of us who have children.

Some people begin to collect things after experiencing a major move, a change in lifestyle, or after a tragic loss.  Holding onto items is something most of us have had to struggle with at one time or another because we often associate life’s moments, or even certain people with items that serve as tangible reminders of loved ones.

The hardest part about getting organized is simply getting started.  Maybe you don’t have time, or the skills or maybe the idea of organization simply scares you.
