As someone who hates clutter but isn’t a naturally “neat” person, getting more organized is always on my to-do list. About once a year, I’ll do a massive overhaul of my entire apartment and throw out all the things I don’t need or haven’t used in over a year.
However, despite my best attempts, a few months go by, and I’m back living in a clutter-filled (read: stressful) world yet again. I just can’t seem to keep myself from hanging on to movie ticket stubs or little trinkets from various people and places I’ve been.
