Radical Idea for Clutter

I received a thank you note from a recent seminar attendee with a blog post from zenhabits attached. The blog talks about packaging away your clutter to create a clean slate. It sounds like a great idea in theory, the only trouble is that most folks probably never get to the boxes full of clutter that they packed away.

In fact, the seminar attendee noted that they essentially packed up the clutter when they moved 7 years ago and the boxes still sit in their basement "hidden by new clutter". In my opinion the zenhabits approach just delays the decision making process. Call it clutter procrastination.


  1. I have to agree with you. I just spent countless hours sorting through 20+ large plastic storage tubs of "stuff" I've moved to 4 different houses.

  2. That's a lot of bins! Do you agree that it would have been better just to get rid of the clutter in the first place?
