What is the True Cost of Clutter?

Clutter can make a person feel overwhelmed, anxious, and stressed. It can lead to a sense of disorganization and make it difficult to focus or find important items. Imagine coming home at the end of a long day and the dining room table is full of papers, toys, and mail? What feeling does it evoke in you?

If you are like most people, a cluttered space leads to feeling overwhelmed. I think we can all agree that it's easier to focus and be present when the space around us is clear and clutter free. But did you know that clutter is actually expensive too! Not only does clutter fog your brain, but it ends up costing you money.

1. Cost of Re-Buying Items You Have, but Can't Find

How many times did you have to buy a new water bottle for your child's school only to find the original one after a few days? Now you're left with two water bottles, when you only need one. That's an extra unnecessary cost. What about when it's something more significant, such as your favorite dress that you can't find and need to buy a new one? Organization can prevent this from happening by ensuring that everything has a designated place, making it easier to find items when they're needed, so that you don't need to spend on buying things twice.

2. Cost of Storing Your Stuff Long-Term

Storage costs can add up quickly, especially if you are renting a unit on a monthly basis. The cost of needing a larger living space to accommodate all your stuff can also be significant over time. However, by decluttering and organizing, you can save money on storage and living expenses while creating a more peaceful and efficient living environment.

3. Cost of Being Delayed by Your Disorganization

When is the last time that you missed a deadline or was charged a late fee because you misplaced the car keys or a bill that was due? Imagine having a proper system implemented in your house, so that the clutter automatically doesn't build up. You will always know exactly where your car keys are and never be stuck paying a late fee again.

A Better Use of Your Time & Money

Instead of spending your time and money on storage, you could invest in experiences that will create memories that last a lifetime. Instead of spending 20 minutes looking for your car keys, you can play a card game with your kids. With all your new found time you can plan a family vacation or day trip, take up a new hobby or skill with your kids, or host friends for a game night or barbecue. By prioritizing experiences over material possessions, you can build stronger relationships and create meaningful memories that will last a lifetime!

Decluttering and organizing your home can bring so many benefits beyond just saving money on storage costs. By creating a more peaceful and organized living environment, you can reduce stress, boost your energy levels, and even free up time and money to invest in things that truly matter, like spending time with loved ones, pursuing hobbies, or traveling. So go ahead and start decluttering – your mind, body, and wallet will thank you for it!
