Health woes: Low self-esteem, weight gain

Keeping clothes a size too small means that you're not accepting yourself as you are. And hanging on to larger sizes sends the subconscious signal that you might gain weight in the future -- and if you can't find your workout clothes in the mess, it just might happen!

Declutter strategy: Clean your closet in 20-minute sessions, focusing on one area (dresses, shoes, shirts) at a time. Put your favorite music on the iPod and get in the right frame of mind: "Once I get rid of the stuff I don't need, I'll feel like I lost weight!"
