The benefits of a clean home through storage …

We’ve written a lot of articles about storage – what an excellent solution it is, and what to look out for.  We haven’t spent that much time talking about the actual benefits of having a nice, clean, de-cluttered home … so we thought that we would rectify that omission this time.

Before we do however, and this is a personal (although widely-held) view, books are exempt.  That’s to say, books are never untidy.  Wherever they are, however they’re stored – even if they’re piled up on the floor – they are not messy.  Indeed, they are a thing of beauty.  There, having got that out of the way, we move on!

  1. An obvious one to start with, but health shouldn’t be ignored.  Dust – the commonest unwanted accompaniment of clutter – can cause asthma (or make it worse) and allergies.
  2. Your home will look nicer (did we mention books are exempt though?)
  3. This is a biggie – you’ll be able to find things quicker – even, perhaps, immediately!  Don’t say that you’ve never been unable to lay your hands on that vitally important document, Passport, letter …
  4. Increased productivity.  That’s right, there’s lots of evidence that a clean, organised environment frees up not only actual but mental space – so you can concentrate on the task in hand instead of looking in exasperated fashion at piles of papers and wondering “where do I start?”.  Jeff Goins has said that Clutter is the enemy of Creativity – and he has a point.  That said …

5. You’ll feel surprisingly good too, once you’ve tidied up – a sense of accomplishment in fact!

Of course, this is all well and good, but the beauty of a storage solution is that you’re not (necessarily) throwing anything away, or giving it to charity, you’re simply storing it safely and securely somewhere else until you need it!
