Peter Walsh organizes Patty's bedroom closet.

9 of 22
Patty's closet is overflowing with clothes, many of which look the same. "We tend to buy the same things over and over," Peter says. For Patty, that means black pants and black turtlenecks. "If you don't hang similar things together, you end up buying the same stuff over and over."

Peter and Patty get started by sorting through her clothes and separating them into "keep" and "donate" piles. At the end of one hour, Patty has seven bags of clothes for donation!

"I feel good," Patty says. "I think this is much-needed help. If you are clutter-prone, it all seems incredibly overwhelming to get started."
