On your brain, your home, and your wallet.
Do you know why clutter makes you feel so gross?
Because it’s a sign of too much chaos in your life, or of holding onto the past in a less-than-ideal way. When someone decides to make a major life change, they often start with a purge and declutter — for good reason.
For some people, this means chopping off their hair. 😉 For others, it means ruthlessly eyeing their belongings and asking for the first time,
“Why do I still have this stuff?”
It’s a complicated question but resolving it is, thankfully, quite simple. Once you realize the cost of clutter, you won’t be able to hire a professional organizer fast enough.
What is the cost of clutter, you ask? Let’s talk about it…
1. Not Knowing What You Have
Have you ever bought something that you know you already own but simply can’t find?
It’s an awful feeling, not to mention a waste of resources. The beauty of getting organized, whether you do it yourself, or hire someone to do the whole thing for you, is the cost-savings. After getting organized, many people find that they buy less, not more.
2. Storing Things You Don’t Need
Whether your garage is too full to include your vehicles, or you’re paying for a storage pod / unit, you might feel up to your eyeballs in boxes, bins, and random stuff that should go who-knows-where.
Get rid of what you don’t need and use what you already own.
