There are many benefits to being organized as you roll into the New Year. The first and most important one is that it will, without a doubt, lower your stress level. Imagine coming home and finding exactly what you need when you need it. A home that you look forward to returning to over and over again because it is an oasis that works for you, rather than against you. Lowering your stress levels has a great impact on all areas of your life, your health included. Having less stress in your life means that you'll be able to focus on what matters, like your family and friends. Less stress also means you'll be able to sleep easier and will be able to think more clearly. Overall, you'll find yourself feeling lighter and freer. You'll look forward to walking in the door, wrapped by the warm hug of an organized home.
In addition to less stress, you'll also save money once you're organized because you'll find what you need when you need it. The double, triple & quadruple buying that is happening in homes stops once you get organized. You can see your full inventory of each like item once they're grouped in a proper home instead of tucked and shoved away all over the house. You'll stop throwing away expired food, and in turn save money, because you'll start using what you have in your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. Being organized changes the way you shop. You start to think "Will I need, love, and use this if I bring it home?" before you make a purchase. You consider where it will live, and if your space is maxed out that's a sign it's time to skip the purchase, which saves you money.
Time is another thing gained by being organized. You'll save so much time by knowing exactly where everything is in your home once it's organized. You'll no longer lose minutes, hours, weeks, and months throughout your lifetime looking for lost items in your home or office. It takes time to get organized but that time comes back to you tenfold in saved time when you need something. You'll get ready faster in the morning because your closet will only house clothing you love and that makes you feel good. Making decisions will take less time because you can easily see what you have. You'll spend less time shopping because you'll go shopping in your home through the items you already own.
If you're a parent the benefit of being organized reaches beyond yourself and can help build lifelong habits that will benefit your children for years to come. It sets a great example for them to follow. It takes time and hard work to teach organization skills but it is so worth it. Your children can become more conscientious roommates and spouses down the road, and it will set a good foundation for them that will stay with them throughout their lives. Organizing is for all ages and can be fun. It is often a learned skill that has the potential to start at home when they're young!
