'Give me a one-handed economist! All my economics say, ''On the one hand, on the other.''' Harry S. Truman
A new book, Lose The Clutter Lose The Weight, as the title suggests operates from an interesting premise. On one hand in regard to clutter and weight-loss, correlation does not mean causation. There are those who have been both fat and tidy, and other times, very fit and sloppy.
On the other hand if you can de-clutter the drama in your life and the clutter in your house and workplace you will not feel so overwhelmed. When I am overwhelmed I look for comfort food.
For a few years after Hurricane Katrina I was about as de-cluttered as one can get. I had a pair shoes, a few changes of clothes, a computer, a dog, and a box full of financial records. I could easily fit all that I owned into my car, and I did actually when I moved to Austin. During that time I experienced tremendous upheaval both financially and personally. I gained weight.
