That's why WebMD went to five organizational experts for their top advice on what you can do to control that clutter. What one person calls clutter another calls collections or treasures, so the first step is to figure out what qualifies as clutter.
Decluttering: The Cure for Chaos
Peter Walsh, an organizational expert and former host of The Learning Channel's Clean Sweep show, divides clutter into two general types.

Clutter, Control, and Your Health
Clutter can be a physical manifestation of mental health issues, Walsh tells WebMD. Those overwhelmed with "memory" clutter may have an undue preoccupation with things in the past and become depressed. Those who can't toss out items because they worry they will need them may be too anxious, he says. A life of consumption -- too much stuff, too much to eat.
Instead of handing his clients a to-do list and a schedule to get the clutter in control, Walsh first asks his clients to ask themselves: For example, do you want the bedroom to be a calm, restful place to spend time with your partner?

Decluttering: A cure for the chaotic mind
Work on your ability to make a decision, and you're on your way to clutter control, Townley Ewer tells WebMD. So when the mail comes in, for example, decide right then to keep a piece or toss it. Toss old magazines, and allay your anxiety knowing you can look up an article online or even trek to the library if you really need it later. Basically, make a pact with yourself.
