I would gladly bet that most of us could do some tidying up. Most individuals probably have a lot of boxes they haven’t touched in years, clothes they haven’t worn in years, and backs of cabinets that they aren’t even sure what’s in there. We all have this sense of I should clean, but do we know why? It really nags at us, doesn’t it? But, perhaps, if you look around at your space and it doesn’t look that bad, you could be wondering, “So why do I feel like I have to clean?” Where is that nagging sensation coming from? It’s not like you’re tripping over things just to get around your home. It’s not like you can’t find the things you need on a daily basis. So maybe that nagging sensation is coming from your subconscious that knows of all the other benefits that come with tidying up. Here are surprising ways you improve your life by cleaning out cabinets, closets, and more.
