Simplify first, then organize

It's simplify, then organize. Otherwise you're just organizing your clutter. And organized clutter is still clutter. Clutter's natural state is disorganized. It's one of the laws of nature, isn't it? Even well-organized clutter reverts back to chaos in an alarmingly short amount of time. Purge your possesions of everything that is not beautiful to you, or useful to your real life (the life you actually have, not your fantasy life or the life you think you ought to be having), then organize whatever is left. You will likely find that if you do it in this order you already have enough baskets and bins to organize your stuff.

Simplify first, then organize.
