7 Reasons to Get Organized
Did you miss National Get Organized Month in January? It’s typically the time of year we have a lot of ‘inside’ time on our hands and look to turning over those proverbial new leaves. But, any time is a great time to get organized.
According to Sandra Wheeler, Professional Organizer and owner of For Peace of Mind, LLC, here are the top reasons clients call to get help reaching their goals of being more organized:
1. Reduce Stress
Life is so much easier and far less stressful when you know what you have and where to find it when you need it. Life is also less stressful when you know that you are accomplishing your most important tasks on time. It is difficult to relax in a cluttered home. A clutter free home is an oasis at the end of a day of hard work.
2. Save Money
Use gift certificates and coupons before they expire. That is real money! Stop paying late fees because you forgot or lost a bill. Stop buying duplicates of items you already own, but can’t find when you need them.
3. Save Time
Knowing where your belongings are ‘housed’ means that you are not wasting time looking for them, over and over and over again. Remembering what to bring with you when you are running errands means fewer trips, less gas, wear on your car, and reduces your “carbon footprint”.
4. Avoid Embarrassment
An organized home is more easily opened to friends and family for entertaining and is not embarrassing when people drop by for a visit. Organizing yourself to arrive on time to appointment avoids excuses and frustrating situations.
5. Avoid Unnecessary Conflict
How many times have you gotten into an argument because you or a family member has misplaced or lost something important? Or your threshold for ‘clutter’ is significantly different from your live-in partner’s threshold, causing constant frustration and conflict.
6. Sell your Home Faster
Presenting an uncluttered, staged home to potential buyers can make all the difference in how long that ‘Sale’ sign is in your front yard.
7. Be Prepared
When a family member cuts a finger, do you know exactly where to go for a bandage and first aid items? If there were a major disaster, could you leave your home with a moments notice and still have access to your important information, like insurance policies, legal documents, etc. Being organized means you are ready for what life throws your way.
