October Newsletter Article.....3 Valuable Things You Lose When You're Unorganized

I truly believe that organization is a tool that can bring many great benefits to people's lives. It's not about being perfect, it's not about your house looking a certain way, and it's not about cramming as much as you can into your life. It's about making your daily life easier and less stressful. Is the thief of disorganization stealing these three valuable things from you and your family?

Organization is about making time for the things you want to be doing. What if you could start from scratch and empty your busy calendar and only allow those activities which were most important to your and your family? What would that look like for you? To start with, you might slash all the wasted time spent looking for stuff. Did you know the average American spends about 55 minutes a day looking for misplaced items? What would you do with an extra hour every day?

Peace of Mind
Organization is about making your daily life less stressful. The environment your put yourself into everyday affects how you feel emotionally and physically. If you long for your home, papers, and stuff to be organized and they aren't, the result is stress. That conflict has a negative impact on your energy and mood. When you love the space you are in, you feel good; that carries over to how you treat those around you.

Being organized saves you money. If you can locate the items you need when you need them, you eliminate unnecessary duplicate purchases. When you have a system in place to keep track of your income, spending, and bills, you can avoid late fees and additional stress. The simple act of making a shopping list before you go to the store saves you from buying things you don't need and forgetting the things you do need. When you forget something, that means another unplanned trip to the store, which results in more money spent on gas. Don't forget about tax season. When you have a organized system in place for your tax-related paper work, you can avoid penalties and it might also mean more deductions for you.

Are you ready to save money, make the most of your time, and give yourself piece of mind? Why not take the steps now to make it happen? Yes, it does take effort and work to get organized, but the benefits are so worth it! Start small and take small steps. Look at what can be done, not what you haven't done. You can do it!
