Clutter Facts

by Noreen Baker

  • People have more household stuff these days and find it hard to keep it all organized: Do you ever feel like you just have too much stuff, don’t know where to put it all and don’t really have use for a lot of it?
  • It’s hard to believe that we use only 20% of what we own: Just think about this one, when you go around your house and look at things with the perspective that you wish to keep only things you need, use and love.  What can go?
  • The average person spends at least 20 minutes a day looking for things: How many times do you look for things each day.  It’s may be helpful to know that most people have this in common until they find a home for things and know where to find them.
  • Cleaning professionals say that getting rid of excess clutter would eliminate 40% of their work:  It’s easier to clean your home when there’s less stuff.  There’s also satisfaction in eliminating stuff so you can have lower house cleaning bills.

These Clutter Facts are useful when we realize the simple fact that when we are in a hurry and we have to push our way through 40 jackets and coats in order to get the one we want out, it just isn’t worth it to have that much stuff.  Free yourselves from the cloud of clutter.  It feels wonderful!
