Stay Organized and You’ll Save Time, Money And Stress!
Here are some things to think about that demonstrate why it is so important to get your house in order and keep it that way.
1. Save Time. The average person spends 55 minutes a day looking for something… And you thought cleaning 30 minutes a day was time consuming.
2. Save Money. When you don’t have piles of papers everywhere, you can pay your bills on time, thus avoiding late fees. Let’s see… 30 seconds to file a bill away compared to working 1-4 hours extra to pay for late fee on bill.
3. Save on Stress. We worry and stew daily over what we eat – organic, fat free, sugar free, “food” free (just joking) in order to protect our hearts and keep healthy but one of the main factors that leads to heart attack and many serious illnesses is stress. Those few seconds or minutes it takes to clean or put something away are insignificant compared to hours spent in the hospital or at the doctor’s office, not to mention money spent on bills.
Once again it is all about perspective and just something to think about the next time you start to dump something in that pile again.
