The first step when dealing with clutter is to really understand what’s going on. Overall, the goal is to deal with the clutter so you can get to the “good stuff”.
The good stuff might mean different things to different people. For some, the good stuff refers to the good possessions one may own. For others, the good stuff refers to getting a better control of one’s life.
