When you plan on organizing your home, you’re likely thinking about how much better your home will look. However, did you know that you can actually save money by keeping your home organized? People spend, on average, 10 minutes per day looking for lost items. Those 10 minutes can mean missed appointments, annoyed friends, or forgotten obligations. Learn about how your organized home can make you money, and then get to organizing.
Find Lost Things
Think about how many lost items you’ll find after your home is organized. Instead of buying a new thermometer every time you need to take your kids’ temperatures, you’ll know exactly where the thermometer is and where it needs to go when it’s done.
Organizing your home can turn up actual money, too. You’ll likely find dollar bills stashed away in random areas, coupons you need to use, and checks that you never cashed. Don’t let your money go unclaimed—organize your home and find it!
Stop Wasting Time and Food
Time is money, so wasting 10 minutes a day looking for items is a waste of money. When you have your home organized, you’ll feel better and save time.
An unorganized kitchen can cost you more money than any other part of your home. How many times have you stuck a head of lettuce way back in your refrigerator, only to find it rotten weeks later?
We waste so much money on perishable food items when our kitchens aren’t organized. When you know exactly what you have in your home and how long it is good for, you can avoid throwing groceries away or buying more than you need.
Make It a Business
Everyone wants an organized home, but no one wants to put the time and effort in. If you go through the work of organizing your home from top to bottom, you’ll learn all sorts of organizing tips and tricks. Your community is probably full of people who would love to pay for someone to organize their home for them. In fact, many people who start these businesses often find that there is more work than they can take on!
In addition to actually organizing people’s homes for them, you may be able to teach classes on organizing. Libraries, local schools, and mom’s groups often hire people to teach them about freezer cooking, couponing, and other frugal activities. Why not teach classes and share what you know?
Not only is an organized home good for your spirit and your home’s appearance, it’s good for your budget! Get started today and see how much time and money an organized home can save you.
