Stop Procrastinating and Get Organized: What is Clutter Costing You?

stop procrastinating get organized clear clutter

You try and try to organize your life. Life organization is important for you both personally and professionally.

Time to stop procrastinating, get organized, and be happy! You can accomplish more and you can have it all

According to Newsweek, due to poor life organization, the average American wastes 55 minutes a day looking for things they own but can’t find. That equates to over 20,000 minutes (or 334 hours) every year! Imagine the amazing things that could be accomplished with that extra time. We could be generating extra income; we could be spending more time at the gym and finally get the body we always wanted; we could be sharing more precious moments with loved ones. We could spend more time being successful and being happy.

Get organized to get happy

So many great things are possible when we have more hours in the day. When we get organized and become more efficient in our daily activities, those wasted minutes will become fewer and fewer, thus allowing us to accomplish more with greater ease.

We teach in our classes that the first step in the process to get organized is to purge excess clutter. Let’s face it, we live in a society of more, more, more. Some estimates propose that the average American home contains around 300,000 items; and, according to the National Association of Professional Organizers, 80% of the stuff we keep we never use. Time to stop procrastinating, organize your office, and organize your life. Time to have a happy life – one that is successful and efficient!

By releasing the excess, we free up space in our homes and in our minds.

Stop the procrastination. Time to organize your office. Time to organize your home. Time to organize your life.

I am sure you’ve heard the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Now I am not calling anyone’s possessions trash, but there are plenty of charities and millions of families in need who would gladly accept items that have been ‘gently used.’ Many of them are even available to pick up the items from your home.

For some of us, much of the excess in our homes will be tossed out or shredded, but that clutter could have value as well. Many of our students have found money, gift cards, and all sorts of other ‘lost’ treasures. In fact, according to a survey conducted by eBay, the average household has more than 50 unused items worth roughly $3,100 in their homes.
