How much can clutter cost you financially?

Having clutter can cost you financially

What does it actually cost you to keep your clutter? Lets do some math. Go into each room of your home and estimate the percentage of space that is taken up by the things your rarely or never use. Be honest. If you want the blatant truth, include everything you don't absolutely love or haven't used in the last year or so. *You may end up with a list that looks something like this:

1. Entrance foyer 5 percent
2. Sitting room 10 percent
3. Dining room 10 percent
4. Kitchen 30 percent
5. Bedroom 1 40 percent
6. Bedroom 2 25 percent
7. Junk room 100 percent
8. Bathroom 15 percent
9. Cellar 90 percent
10.Attic 100 percent
11.Garden shed 60 percent
12.Garage 80 percent

Total 565 percent

Now divide the total by the numbe of areas. 565 percent divided by 12 areas = 47% junk per room!!

So, in this case, the cost of storing clutter works out to be a staggering 47% of the cost of the rent or mortgage for your home!
