We’ve all got one – a chaos room. It might be your shed, study, attic, wine cellar or child’s old bedroom. It’s filled with things that you know you might need, so can’t get rid of, but haven’t yet figured out where to put, or had time to put there. And if you’re really lucky it’s just a chaos drawer!
Being organised is certainly a challenge, but it has many obvious benefits that we all begrudgingly acknowledge. But perhaps there are benefits that you haven’t really thought about before. Read on to find out why being a neat freak could really benefit you!
1. Saves you money
Being organised means that you can locate things quickly when you need them. We’ve all had this experience: You know you’ve got that screwdriver or picture hook somewhere. But you inevitably end up buying a new one, only to find the old one a week later. This just wastes money on things you don’t really need.
2. Keeps stress levels low!
There’s nothing more frustrating than running around the house minutes before an important event, hunting for that second shoe. Disorganised homes add unnecessary stress and chaos.
3. Saves you time
Hunting for lost items around the house is not only frustrating, but time consuming. Those minutes spent each day searching through boxes, cupboards or drawers all add up! Yes it does take time organising in the first place, but once you have good systems in place it is much easier to remain organised and get rid of the need for rifling through cupboards every day.
