I am not sure how many people know this about me, but I am the most unorganized person you will ever meet. And, my personal space is very cluttered.

So, when I saw this study on how to de-clutter your life, I knew I had to pass it along to you. But, what I really wanted to do is hopefully get some tips to help me not be so cluttered.

My house is full of piles. Being messy is one thing, but I truly believe that when you are unorganized it carries over into every other part of your life.

According to the Daily Mail, if you are anything like me then it's time to take out your camera.

Researchers found the real reason we hang onto stuff is because we don't want to give up the memories associated with them.  In other words, they have sentimental value.

But if you take a picture of something, it doesn't feel like you're giving up those memories for good.  So if you try it before you make a trip to Goodwill, you'll probably donate more stuff.

I'm so messy I'll try anything. If you try this technique, let me know if it works for you.
