Correlating clutter and weight loss

I was in Borders and saw a book with a funny title "Does this clutter make my butt look fat?" The book basically is showing how there can be a connection between the two behaviors of having a messy house and being oveweight. When you weigh yourself down with are more likely to also weigh yourself down physically with food. When you don't take care of the environment that you are less likely to take care of the body you live in too.
There was actually a show on Oprah that showed an overweight family and their disaster of a house. I have some clutter but NOTHING like these people.
Anyway, after watching the show, it motivated me to declutter things in my life. I started with my books and moved to my closet and then to my drawers. Tomorrow I'll tackle my bathroom drawers. I'm not honestly that messy and I'm married to "Mr. Clean" but it felt good to get rid of that extra stuff I didn't need. Will it help me lose weight? I don't know but it does put me in the frame of mind to look at improving things for the better including my health both physically and emotionally.
