What is the Cost of Your Clutter?

At one point or another, some of us face a mountain of clutter that we have to sort out. For some, it may be their desk at work, for others, it may be a messy room at home.

Regardless of where the clutter is, be it home or work, it can take its toll on you in one way or another…

The most obvious cost of clutter is being unorganized, which leads to massive amounts of wasted time searching for misplaced items and documents. This wasted time can eventually lead to monetary losses. This is especially true of clutter in the work place.

The amount of time wasted searching for documents lost in the pile on ones desk adds up to lost productivity and ultimately money for you and your employer.

The time spent looking for lost papers and documents could be much better spent on activities that would generate income for you or revenue for your business. While the time wasted each day may seem minimal over an entire year, the losses can add up to a figure that would make anyone reconsider their poorly organized spaces.
