I used to have a clutter graveyard. It was located in my home office. Whenever I didn’t want to deal with something – a box, paper, mail …anything … I would shove it in my office until I could get to it. Surprised? You shouldn’t be — pro organizers are busy just like everyone else and sometimes get caught up with life.
The difference between us and the average person is that we have weapons in our arsenal. We use specific strategies to get righted again, and because we have those tools, our spaces tend not to remain cluttered for very long.
