How much is too much stuff?
Stuff is heavy. I often get asked by clients at our first meeting if I have “ever seen anything this bad.” The person’s body language is usually a dead give-away for internal tension, anxiety, embarrassment, regret, and even guilt. Posture is compromised; eyes may be cast downward and even brimming with tears. When the tears appear, it is not unusual to hear this statement: “I don’t know why I am crying. I am sorry.”
You think clutter and too much stuff doesn’t affect you? Think again. It weighs heavy on you, and its ramifications impact you at a very deep level.
Every now and then, I run across an article that really hits home and touches on the very fabric of my profession. Professional Organizing is my calling and my passion and I know at the deepest level of my being that I was sent here to help people.

Helping overwhelmed people get to the bottom of how they got where they are is critical. The reasons can be easy to trace, such as both parents have recently died and the client was the recipient of all of their possessions. It could be related to a medical issue: advanced age, a diagnosis, depression, physical limitations. It could be circumstantial like loss of home, marriage, family, job, security. It could be any number of reasons not cited here. The bottom line is clutter overwhelm exists and it weighs heavy.
