Clutter accumulates, almost clandestinely, while you’re preoccupied with decorating, renovating, celebrating the holidays, living your life, or keeping up with the Joneses, those celebrated influencers of conspicuous consumption. You accumulate clutter during well-intentioned activities like accepting gifts or from holding on to an item when it’s well past its usefulness. Sometimes the clutter accumulates from shop-til-you-drop sessions and Black Friday sales. The reason for the clutter is not what’s important. Fighting the clutter is what’s important.
