“Clutter is the physical manifestation of unmade decisions fueled by procrastination”
― Christina Scalise, Organize Your Life and More.
Ms. Scalise may have this right (okay, she probably has this right!), but as a life-long cluttered person, I've always thought it must be something else, like a sickness? From as long as I can remember, my family called me "Messy Bessy" and I related immediately to Pig Pen in the Charlie Brown comics. It was as if Charles Schwartz actually knew some of us when he invented that character. It was reassuring as a small child to know there were 'others' out there. I have to purposefully keep a "preacher-ready" room (living room) and the guest room doors closed so that I don't mess them up. My name is Beth and I am a clutterer. - Beth Almond Ford
