Imagine you are in a rush hour subway and can’t move and breathe? Is that a nice feeling?
I get much the same feeling when my closet and dresser are cluttered and overcrowded.
I always try to have plenty of space between my cloths, and I want air to circulate around my cloths and I like to see my favorite things without having to sort through everything.
You might think it is a waste of space.
To me it comforting and in reality it saves me both money (not buying too many thing) and time (less time spent organizing and finding things).
Remember, empty space is a good thing. Not all space needs to be filled.
