Marin and Perry

Marin and Perry are Skyping in from her new digs with an update on that rank refrigerator. "I threw a party actually the next day, so I spent three hours cleaning it," she says. "I'm also making my bed, too, by the way."

Marin says she's more motivated than ever after her clutter intervention. "I didn't really realize that being messy hindered me," she says. "I was always kind of like waiting until I owned my own apartment or moved to a house, but now is the time to be neat and decorate, and now is the time to pursue my goals. This really just lit a fire for me."

"Your life can't be together and focused, targeted, if you're living in a messy, cluttered, disorganized space," Peter says. "It just doesn't happen."
