  1. Excellent advice. Organization saves so much time and truly makes chores and other things much easier.

    Do the same with your wallets and purses, you’ll be amazed how respecting your money by having it organized will attract more money.

    One other thing that removing clutter can help with savings, is it is less dangerous to live in a decluttered home. The older you get, the more fragile bones are and the potential for falls which could lead to long expensive hospitalization is significant. Get rid of anything that can cause you to trip and fall. Even if you have insurance to cover medical expenses of a fall, it doesn’t cover the pain and suffering or the possiblity for some older folks to completely lose their home to have to live in a nursing home. Nor does it cover the cost to your relatives as they have to shuttle back and forth visiting you and/or caring for you and your needs after a fall. Get rid of slippery throw rugs and boxes of junk that are in the way or your walking.

    This article resonates so much with me. I suffered from the clutter bug as I was doing some study and couldn’t (wouldn’t?) clean. Recently I wanted some wood glue to repair a chair. I knew I had some but couldn’t find it. I went out and purchased a huge bottle. I cleaned afterwards and found two bottles of wood glue in the clutter! I could have saved myself two bottles of wood glue if my home was uncluttered! Lesson learned!!!!
