Clutter can damage your health and affect your wealth. Think we're exaggering? Here's the thing: everything you own needs to be kept clean or you're breathing in dust and creating an environment loved by icky pests. The more useless things you have, the more useless stuff you have to clean. Clutter also affects you financially because if you don't know what you have because it is hidden in among the clutter, you go out and re-buy it. Plus there's the hidden value in junk (defined as something you don't love or need) that's not in your pocket because you haven't gotten round to selling it.
