How Much is Clutter Costing You? Why You Should Organize Your Home

Organize your home

You know you should organize your home, but did you know that a messy, disorganized living space could be costing you money? Here’s what clutter could be costing you and why you should organize your home the right way to save yourself both time and money.

Late fees

Are you paying late fees every month because you can’t remember when to pay your bills? It’s easy to misplace your bill reminders when your filing system is less than spectacular. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to cut down the clutter so you won’t forget to pay your bills on time.

Sign up for electronic statements and set up automatic payments for as many bills as you can. This means you’ll be able to choose the date that each bill is paid, and you won’t have tons of paper lying around adding to your clutter.

Clean out your kitchen

How many times have you gone to the grocery store and bought something you didn’t need because you couldn’t find the item in your pantry? Wasted food is wasted money, so take the time to organize your kitchen pantry, refrigerator, and freezer so you can take stock of the foods you have.

While you’re at it, take the time to plan your meals for the week. This way you’ll know exactly what you need from the grocery store, this way don’t overspend on random food items, and less likely to make a last minute fast food run because you don’t know what to cook.

Cash in on your clutter

If your home is disorganized because you don’t have space for all of your stuff, it’s time for a clear-out. Gather up the items you no longer use or want and have a garage sale or sell the items online. Online auction sites are ideal for this, but there are also specialized sites that will buy your CDs, DVDs, and video games from you, plus they pay for the shipping. Not only can you organize your house, but you can also fatten your wallet at the same time.

Clear space is pleasant and relaxing, but a cluttered one could actually cost you money. If you find that your lack of organization is beginning to affect your finances, try these tips and see for yourself how great it feels to organize your home and keep your finances in great shape at the same time.
