Home Organizing Endeavours: Five Excellent Reasons to Get Rid of Your Stuff

1

“Eliminate the clutter and all the things that are going on outside and focus on the things that you can control with how you sort of go about and take care of your business. That is something that is ongoing, and it can never change.” –Nick Saban

 

On the surface, purging your homes from things you no longer need, want or use might seem like a daunting endeavour.

“What if I am going to need it someday?”

“But Aunt Mary gave it to me, why should I throw it away?”

“What is the purpose of throwing it away? I have enough storage space as it is”

These are just some of the reasons that tend to hold back homeowners from getting rid of their unwanted and unusable items. Some of the reasons for your resistance in eliminating these items would either stem from sentimentality, nostalgia or you just want to have it around to see if you will eventually need it in the future. But the truth is, you are just clinging on to junk and if you do not get rid of them anytime soon, then you will likely end up in a living space so cramped and stifling that it would incite feelings of anxiety whenever you come home. More importantly, your insistence in keeping these things will keep you from having better things solely because you no longer have enough space to store them. In this regard, clearing the clutter and organizing your homes should be an annual practice—an annual habit if you may. However, if you find yourself being unable to start or lacking the right motivation to do it, this article might just help you get things going. Perhaps revisiting the reasons for decluttering and organizing your home might help you kick start your goal into having a better organized and cleaner home.

In any case, whether you are living in a unit in Ardia Vermosa or elsewhere, here are some of the excellent reasons why you should definitely declutter your homes:

 

Enjoy more free time

Having a clutter-free home will inevitably lead to significantly less cleaning time. After al, you would no longer need to organize the items day after day just so you can clean the area beneath them or the area they are stored in. More importantly, living with less stuff makes it a lot easier to find items when you need it which means less time is wasted looking for items you might have misplaced. Having fewer household belongings would ultimately make your home better and more manageable to clean.

 

Spend less money

A clutter-free space means having no worries about where to store your belongings. In general, it redounds to a significantly lower monthly expense as you would not have to worry about buying more organizing tools, storage containers and the like just to have somewhere to put all of those extra items. When you are conscious about maintaining a clutter-free home, you may even potentially spend less on your home—especially when you decide that you do not need all the extra space after clearing the clutter.

 

Feel more calm

A cluttered living space can feel overwhelmingly confusing. As times, it can even be stifling and suffocating insomuch that it becomes almost unbearable to be there. However, a room with less stuff will feel warm, inviting and serene. More importantly, it gives you room to breathe and so much more. Overstuffing homes would only invite stressful emotions and anxiety. So ensure that your surfaces are devoid of stuff and clear it from material goods. Give yourself the gift of being calm and serene.

 

Always have something to wear

Having an overstuffed closet can lead you to being indecisive about your daily ensembles. While you have a wider array in clothing selection, there is a likely chance you would not be able to see them all as you have kept and stuffed them in the drawers and corners of your closet. In this regard, you are left with the paradox of having a full closet without having to wear. With this in mind, you ought to start purging your closet from clothes that no longer serve you well. This includes clothes that no longer fit you, old clothes and clothes you have not even worn in the past year. In this way, you would be able to see your clothing selections better. Paring down your wardrobe and filling it only with the things you love will make you look forward to dressing up each morning instead of dreading it.

 

Get better sleep

Having way too much going on in a room distracts you from getting any decent sleep. More importantly, sleeping in a cluttered room leads to stressful mornings. Clear your bedroom from all the unwanted items it currently has to help you get some quality shut-eye. After all, your home should be a safe haven where you can clear your mind from worries and stress. if it is in a perpetual state of disarray, there is a likely chance that it is only going to heighten and aggravate your negative feelings instead of nullifying it.

MANILA, Philippines — The Ayala-led Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. (IMI) nearly doubled its net profit in 2013 to $10.5 million, as strong business expansion in Europe and the Philippines allowed the company to defy the global downturn in the global electronics outsourcing industry.

IMI, a leading worldwide provider of electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and power semiconductor assembly and test services, grew its net profit in 2013 on the back of a 12.6-percent growth in revenues to $745 million. Comparative net profit in 2012 was at $5.6 million.

“Our diversification strategy has afforded us extensive global footprint, amplified technical capabilities, and wide-ranging customers, so that despite several challenges we realized higher revenues with corresponding profitability,” IMI president and chief executive officer Arthur Tan said in a press statement on Thursday.

IMI grew its income and margins despite subdued global economic growth in 2013. As such, it outperformed the decline in worldwide electronic equipment production and global electronics outsourcing industry.
