This article on getting rid of clutter made me laugh (and cry) out out, in particular these tips:

  • Place every cloth napkin you own in a sacred circle on the cleanest table you own (tables should be either a rock from the sea or a book that is enchanted by one or fewer spells). If the napkin does not rise up of its own volition and perform a flawless Japanese tea ceremony for you, you were not meant to be. You should burn it, along with all of your professional regrets.
  • Throw away everything in your dirty laundry hamper. If a piece of clothing really mattered to you, you wouldn’t let it get dirty.
  • If you’ve ever used them to hold a smartphone in bed, consider getting rid of your hands. They clutter up the arms.

I’m still laughing, Nolan doesn’t get it. I hope you do.
