The Problem With Clutter
Some people don’t mind clutter. If you’re one of those people, good for you, I suppose. But even if it doesn’t bother you, clutter still has many negative effects.
- Takes Up Space. Clutter takes up space that you could use for other things. Or, in some cases, like if you have to rent a storage locker or have to buy a bigger home, it can increase the space you need. Space costs money!
- Wastes Time. If you aren’t sure where something is, it’s going to take you a lot longer to find it if you have a cluttered life. Every minute you spend searching for something is a waste of time. This is time you could be doing something more productive or enjoyable.
Clutter won’t ever stop, but it can be addressed. Here are some ways that I plan to get rid of clutter.
