The title says it all. The same goes for offices and just about every other room we occupy. Any organizer (or reformed clutter bug) could have told you this, but we now have research to prove it! NPR’s A Cluttered Kitchen Can Nudge Us To Overeat, Study Finds sums up a recent study published in the journal Environment and Behavior. An excerpt:
"A few years ago Vohs published the results of an experiment that placed participants either in a messy setting with papers and office supplies scattered throughout, or in a clutter-free room. She found that people in the orderly room were more inclined than those in the messy room to choose a healthy snack — an apple."
