Are you longing to be an organized person? For some, home organizing comes naturally. But don’t worry. It’s a skill that you can learn. You just need to be motivated. One good way to spark your interest is to think about its many benefits.

Benefits of Home Organizing

Reduce Stress

You will feel less stressed if your home is not cluttered. A study revealed that individuals who live in a cluttered house are prone to depression and stress. Those who describe their home as very chaotic or not fun were more at risk of experiencing high cortisol levels, depression, and fatigue. Meanwhile, those who describe their homes as tidy, restorative, and restful had lower stress levels.

Boost Productivity

If you feel depressed or stressed, it also follows that you can’t focus on anything. When you are in a disorganized setting, your brain will also get distracted. This lack of concentration means you take longer to accomplish your tasks. By improving your skills in organizing your home, you also boost your efficiency in completing your tasks.

Downsizing Tips: How To Get Rid of Clutter?

Everyone knows that clutter needs to go but it’s always easier to leave the task of decluttering for another day. If you are moving to a new home, then now is the perfect time to get this done.

Some people think that downsizing is only for retirees. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Even those with children in college or if their adult children have settled into their new lives may consider downsizing.

Deal With Easier Stuff First

Getting rid of clutter can be an overwhelming task and that’s one of the many reasons why many homeowners put off this task. So, to help you get started, you should deal with the things that you can easily part with.

  1. Clothes – get rid of all those that no longer fit you, have not worn in years, or have stains on them.
  2. Paper – get rid of paper clutter like manuals, extra copies, envelopes, or similar items that you no longer use.
  3. Duplicates – Get rid of all the duplicates. Do you have 10 mugs in a house of 2? Do you have 5 black shirts when you only use 2 regularly?
  4. Books – donate, sell, or give some of the books that you own.
  5. Movies and Music – they’re most likely part of the service that you are already subscribed to so there’s no need to keep old music or movie tapes, CDs, or DVDs.
