Here are some Benefits of an Organized Home that are likely to touch your life if you declutter and give everything a rightful home.
1. You Save Time – (Benefits of being organized)
One of the greatest and most obvious benefits of an organized home is saving time.
What do I mean by this? I mean, you know where everything is! When you don’t know where to find things, you spend too long searching. You waste valuable time you could be spending on something else.
Anyone else hunting for their car keys way too often each week? Late to work or church or daycare, etc. because of it? If you organize your things, giving every object a home that makes sense and is functional for your life, then you’ll know where they are, even when you’re in a hurry.
2. You Save Money
We’ve all done it: gone to the store and bought “X” only to return home and realize we already had one. Or two.
Similarly, probably many of us could say we’ve found ourselves in need of some item we know we own, but simply CANNOT find, so we buy another. … Then, of course, that missing item reappears days/weeks/months later, and now we have two.
All of this can be avoided if we simply organize our stuff so that everything has a home. When we know for sure what we have (and where it is!), then we’re not buying extras. Thus, we save money.
3. You’re Able to Organize Your Mind, Too – (Benefits of being organized)
When we have a cluttered house, we also have cluttered brains.
I’ve also noticed this phenomenon on my computer. When I have a million tabs open on my web browser, chances are, I’m currently scatterbrained. So one of the benefits of an organized house is being able to also organize our brains.
With our physical places tidied up, we have room to think and lay out our thoughts without the distraction of the clutter around us.
4. You Reduce Stress & Overwhelm
It’s stressful to lose things you need, to waste money on things you already own, or to wade through belongings and see them as a mass-ocean of stuff instead of individual prized possessions.
And when you realize you need to declutter and organize, you might become overwhelmed by the sheer volume. You might not know where to begin, so you end up shuffling items from room to room without really getting rid of anything. Or you start in one place, then stop due to overwhelm, and never come back to it.
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been there. But once you pass the hump and actually have an organized space, holding only the items you truly need, love, and use, then you can almost literally feel the stress dripping away.
Overwhelm is gone because you have a plan. No more do you have to wonder where something should go (aka be shoved to fit). You’ve got it under control and cleaning up will be much easier from here on out.
