Can you find inner peace by cleaning out your messy closet? One skeptical, self-taught organizing expert recently took on a challenge made by a book called 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up', thinking she knew everything there was to know about de-cluttering. But she found out through the book’s main thesis that organizing isn’t ”a little at a time”, rather, it should be done in a sweeping, purge-like style. The experiment began with weeding out clothes, followed by boxes of journals, old love letters and photos, and her daughter’s artwork. When she finally determined what to keep and what to donate the organizer says she did, in fact, feel an uncanny inner peace. She hadn't just organized her closet; she had sifted through mementos of her past and was finally able to let go of the emotional clutter that had been lingering unnoticed. What do you think of this experiment? Do you think a purge session in your closet or storage space can help you find inner peace? Share your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.
