How Getting Organized Saves Time and Money
Aug 12, 2019
Is your home a mess? Are you always losing things like your keys or your phone? Can you find those important documents at tax time? Are you always doing things at the last minute because you can’t find what you need to complete a task? Take back control of your space and get organized!
Being organized is learning the process of arranging things and keeping them in order. And being organized and tidy is not just a good thing because your Mom told you so! It saves you time and money and lets you get on with doing the things you want to do.
Here are six reasons why being organized is important.
- You will have more time
Being messy and disorganized is a major time-suck. How much time have you wasted looking through a cluttered closet looking for that other shoe? Or that important letter that you know you put on the kitchen counter and now can’t find? It’s better to spend some time assigning a proper place for everything and making sure you put things in the right place.
- You’ll be more efficient
An organized home with a clear place for everything runs much more smoothly. Instead of a huge cleanup every few months, a system of putting things away in the proper place keeps things under control. Even basic things like laundry will work better if everyone knows where the dirty clothes go, and where to put clean items when once folded.
- You can Prioritize
If your desk, workspace or apartment is tidy, important projects or tasks can be easily seen, and not lost in an undifferentiated clutter. You can see what needs doing and can get on with it, instead of panicking about all the stuff you have to do.
- You’ll save money
If you don’t have a clear idea of what you have, you’re much more vulnerable to impulse buying, and you’ll end up with multiples of things. That is not just an unnecessary expenditure because it’s also wasteful and bad for the environment. Knowing what you have and what you need means you can make thoughtful purchases, save money and avoid debt.
- You’ll be calmer
Let’s face it. Clutter is stressful. Living in chaos and mess is frustrating and annoying. An ordered space is much calmer and is a real refuge from a stressful world.
- It’s healthier
Clutter is not just stressful, but it can be unhygienic too. A messy home is hard to clean. Those piles of books, papers, and dirty plates will attract bugs, rodents, spiders, and snakes. At the very least they will get dusty! A tidy and ordered space will be clean and pest-free.
