With the Fourth of July happening midweek this year, you might have found that you were pressed for time in planning patriotic activities, and clutter might have compounded those problems. The answer? Declare your independence from junk! Anything that takes up space and mental energy but isn’t useful, organized and valued is clutter, says Therapy Changes. It accumulates over time and stifles further growth. Free yourself of that clutter by clearing out one drawer or closet at a time and contacting ClothingDonations.org for a pickup. Without all of that clutter, you’ll experience greater clarity and sense of purpose.
