What's your clutter keeping you from? By Linda Dessau,repparttar Self-Care Coach

So you might be asking what is clutter and why should I care about it? Clutter is essentially anything you don't need, don't want and get no joy from seeing. There might be 100's of items in your home or office right now that could be cleared away.
