Crisp, cool weather!
Autumn is the perfect time to evaluate your home and find ways to declutter.
According to an article by CU Insight, taking the time to declutter could actually put money back into your wallet.
The article lists four ways that decluttering your home could save you money:
- Fewer healthcare expenses
- Lower living expenses
- More household organization
- and …
- Additional charitable contributions
- Fewer healthcare expenses. More often than not, a cluttered home equals a dirty or dusty home. Unless you are cleaning your crowded space on a daily basis, it’s very difficult to avoid the unsanitary conditions and poor air quality associated with an unclean home. This can lead to health issues resulting in higher medical expenses.
- Lower living expenses. Common sense tells you that the less clutter you have, the less space you need. When you downsize you save on monthly rent or mortgage payments, which are often the largest expenditures per month. Additionally, if you own or rent a smaller home, you will inevitably have less expensive utility bills; the cost to maintain the home (yard care, for instance) will also be lessened after downsizing.Click here to read the full article!
