Cordaway: Why is it important for people to have an organized home?
Walsh: The word ‘organize’ and the word ‘organic’ come from the same source—to be organized is to be fully whole and complete. That’s the goal in all of this. If you’re organized in your home, there’s far less stress and anxiety.
Cordaway: How so?
Walsh: Clutter makes us feel stressed out. You can be more focused and motivated, more calm and at peace (with less clutter). When a home is overrun with clutter it robs us emotionally. It steals our peace and calm. We are not even able to relax in our own homes. It also robs us socially. We are too embarrassed to have people over to our houses.
