As a professional organizer, I’ve found that most people would be happier if they had clearer homes and bigger bank accounts. But instead, we have a nation of savers, who are afraid to throw things out, even when they most likely will never use the item ever again. The savers of the world are not only living with piles of clutter-induced stress, but they are losing the opportunity to turn those piles into cash. The problem is really simple: when it comes to clutter, people don’t act rationally. These aren’t hoarders who have serious psychological problems. These are regular people who just aren’t thinking logically when it comes to the items in their homes. In fact, they’re not thinking at all. They’re stuck. They have gotten to a point where their stuff has become a burden, a barrier, and something of a beast. In my line of work I’ve heard people describe the messier areas of their home as everything from, “the black hole” to “the room of shame.” Meanwhile, your need for money, especially in this economy is huge. You need to pay off credit card debt, build a better wardrobe, finance entertainment, get the kids through college, and of course, a healthy dose of gift giving and self-pampering. Why not? You work hard, you deserve to be able to afford a massage here and there, that flat screen T.V. to watch the games on, and to take the family on a fabulous vacation. So why are most people sitting at home, surrounded by never-ending piles of half-used stuff and stacks of unpaid bills, wishing they had the means to live an even slightly better life? What if that “room of shame” was actually an ATM in disguise? Find out the truth about how to clear out clutter and turn your "trash" to cash by joining my free hour long session!
