Do you have a hard time letting go of things? Feel like you'll lose a part of yourself if you don't keep an item?

You know when you walk into a room and you think, "OMG, this place is making me crazy!"

So you group things up, stack them, shuffle them around and rearrange everything in the room - so it's all "organized."  

Yet you wonder why it's a disaster again in just a matter of hours.

Now you know that's really not organizing....WATCH VIDEO
