Clutter can really sneak up on us. It’s important to keep it under control or you may find yourself way over your head. If having a clean home and clear mind aren’t enough reasons to let go of the mess in your home, we have put together a list of our top 4 reasons.
We live busy lives and when we come home after a long day, the last thing we want is to step into a messy home. By allowing clutter to start to take over your home, you will increase your stress levels. Examples of added stress inside a messy home are: Not finding items, lack of personal space, lack of organization and the feeling of guilt from not taking care of the mess.
If you work from home, or do any kind of hobby that requires you to need “peace and quiet” than living in a neat place will help tremendously. Having something constantly on your mind, like clutter, will split your focus and have a negative impact on productivity. This includes wasting time to clean a mess each time before you sit down and work.
Have you ever been late on a bill and had to pay a late fee? If you have, then you know what a total waste of funds that is. Make sure you can keep your bills organized and payments made on time. Living in a clutter-free space will help with this because you can dedicate certain spaces to bills and important documents. In fact, living clutter-free can save 15-20% of your annual budget due to better planning.
Everyone wants people to think well of them. If you are a person who lives in a perpetual state of clutter, the change is people might think you are lazy. If the clutter also affects your work area, i.e. your desk, then you need to fix it. By having a clean space, people will feel more comfortable and bring out positive feelings towards you when stopping by your home or office.
It’s not impossible to live clutter-free, it just takes some work. No more excuses, get up and start decluttering your home today.
