|HOME Got Clutter?
The cost of clutter can be a real killer. Clutter that never gets used
gets stored. And storage space costs money whether it’s in your closets,
garage, basement, or a storage unit.
If you’ve reached the point where you think you have to move because you “need more space,” think again. How much more money per month is that extra space going to cost you? $100? $200? $500? Unless you have three extra children with no place to sleep, it’s a good bet that all you need the extra space for is to store your expanding cache of clutter.
It doesn’t take an accountant to figure out that you can save money by eliminating clutter. First, you won’t have to move, which will save you moving costs, deposit expenses, and /or escrow costs. Then you’ll save the money you would have added to your monthly rental or housing payment. (Don’t forget to multiply that times twelve to come up with your yearly savings.) Now, add the yearly savings to the moving, deposit and /or escrow savings for a total (savings) amount. With that eye-opening figure fixed firmly in your mind, take an honest inventory of your clutter.
Finally, do the only sensible and financially prudent thing:
Chuck, give, or otherwise get rid of all the useless clutter that's currently occupying that expensive square footage.
