Why Your Home Should be Organized

Updated on December 10, 2013


For many people time is more precious than gold, silver, and platinum combined. Time seems to be a rare commodity which only people with magical powers can conjure up out of nowhere and use at their will. Many people I interact with never seem to have enough of that sweet stuff called time. I personally don’t believe that most people don’t have any time to spare, it is that they are not using their time wisely. For example here is a hypothetical question: What if every day you had exactly $86,400.00 appear in your bank account and you had all day to spend that money, but at the end of your day what ever was left over would be gone forever. What would you do with your money? Would you let it sit there in your account and just vanish every day, or would you spend every penny you could? That is what I thought. Well, you don’t have a bank account of new money every day, but you do have a bank account of time with exactly 86,400 seconds to spend everyday. If you use your time wisely you will get more done and feel better about things. Being organized can really help you with time as people can spend 30 minutes to an hour every day looking for stuff. Thats almost 2 weeks a year looking for stuff!



A lot of people don’t think about how unsafe it is to be unorganized. Yes, it is funny when we watch our favorite comedy and the dad steps on a skateboard and hurtles down the driveway. In reality this is not that funny, and accidents like this happen more often than many people think they do. Another example is storing items in an unstable way in a high place. You may know that when you open that top cabinet you have wear a hard hat, but your wife may not and what will she do when she comes face to face with an avalanche of stuff? As a tall man I know I have done that a lot and I am so glad no one has been buried alive on my account. Ladies, don’t think your off the hook. Remember to pick up your beauty supplies as they are a fire or stab wound waiting to happen.Think about your safety when contemplating your organizing habits.

If there is one thing that should motivate people, it’s money. It’s a fact that we spend more when we are disorganized. How many times have we shoved a bill in our purse or our glovebox and forgot about it only to get hit with late fees? Or even losing actual money? Another example is buying extra of something such as food because you can’t remember what you have in your kitchen. I know to be true as one time between my girlfriend and myself we had bought 4 tubs of butter and they were in our fridge all at the same time being used. These sort of over buying or safety buying is expensive not to mention wasteful.



The process of keeping an organized home comes with many requirements and obligations, but it also comes with many rewards such as feeling accomplished, healthy, and confident. Confidence plays a key role in many day to day activities as it gives up the good feeling of abilities to tackle new tasks on a daily basis. Confidence is the launching pad for any new endeavor we pursue. So needless to say confidence is extremely important to everyone. having an organized home and clear focused vision is a must when taking on new challenges. Maintaining an organized home can boost that confidence easily. Especially when you have guests over and they comment on how wonderful your home looks or how they would love to be able to maintain their home like you do. Not only does having an organized home make you tidier it also shows people that you are in control. You are the king or queen of your castle and you have it all taken care of. People will in turn naturally have more respect for you and trust you more which fosters even more confidence in yourself.

      I feel that way as well. For many though that goal is just to broad and they can't focus in on the little things.
