I was watching the Oprah show while getting dressed
this morning, and they featured a woman who had accumulated 30 years’ worth of
clutter in her apartment. They hauled away over 4 tons of clutter! They hired a
group called Order by Design.

I wonder if
a clutter-busting business would work in Manila. I would hire all my
obsessive-compulsive friends and let them work through their psychological
issues and other people’s organizational failures at the same time. Of course, I
would be my first client. Teye can finally earn from her fixation on having
separate scrubbing pads for glassware and plates. Chiqui can dictate order into
the closets of people with more shoes than she does. Marlon can fold and label
and arrange by color all he wants.
