Trisha signed Peter's clutter pledge and immediately set upon cleaning her kitchen. "Sorting my papers, my dishes, giving [back] stuff that belonged to other family members," she says. "It took about two or three days, but it was really worth it because the difference was huge."

Like Leslie, Trisha found cash in her clutter. "We found lots of items we had doubles of or items we didn't use, such as kitchen appliances, electronics, baby items," she says. "We sold them for about $300, which helped us pay off some bills."

More than saving cash, Trisha says living in a clean, organized space has freed her mind. "It makes me feel like a weight has been lifted off. I'm able to not only spend time now with my family and eat in that area and prep in that area, but it's also made life a lot easier and a lot happier."
