Following Singapore's first-ever survey on clutter in homes, and the government's launch of a taskforce to help hoarders, a spate of articles on clutter and hoarding came out in the press. Here we've summarized the key points for sharing. There's much social stigma around clutter, but many don't understand that getting organized is actually a learned skill, much like cooking is. Just get help.
The clutter on our desk is probably the reason why we stay late at work. There's no shame in not knowing how to get organized - all of us need to be taught the right way, just like we need to be taught how to cook a mean bowl of laksa or churn out tasty cakes. If your office looks like a hurricane just passed through it, we can help you get organized, PERMANENTLY. No rebound, no overtime.
