Happy New Year!

2020 is FINALLY coming to a close, and it’s a good time to reflect on the past year and set goals for a new one.  If this past year taught us anything, it’s that we are capable of so much more than we ever thought we were. So what are your goals for 2021?

For most people, healthier lifestyles and weight loss are at the top of the list of New Year’s Resolutions.  If you are thinking about adopting a healthier lifestyle, don’t forget to think outside your body….

Your home and the environment you live in plays a large part in your overall health.  Studies show that excess clutter increases stress, decreases productivity, and costs you more time and money in the long run.

  • Clutter increases the time it takes to accomplish household chores by 40%
  • 25% of people can’t park a single car in a 2 car garage
  • We spend on average 55 minutes a day searching for lost items
  • We spend an average of $2.7 BILLION  per year replacing lost items – things we know we have but can’t find, or things we forgot we had and buy again
  • We spend an average of $154 billion per year on storage units, and there are more storage units in the US than the number of McDonalds and Starbucks locations COMBINED
  • We typically only wear or use 20% of the items in our home/closet.

And these are just a few of the staggering statistics about clutter.

If it’s a goal of yours to lead a more organized, clutter-free life in 2021, here are a few easy habits that can make your goal a reality.

By making these simple changes in your daily routine, you will definitely have less clutter in your life!
