“Are there any benefits to getting my house organized? I mean my house will probably get disorganized within a few minutes after my kids get through with it anyway!”
Sis, I hear you loud and clear and just like anything in life there are pros and cons. But, can I be honest for just a quick second? I honestly don’t believe there are any cons to getting and staying organized. Once your home is organized and done the right way it’s nearly impossible for it to become disorganized within a few minutes or days by you or anyone, especially those little humans. The only thing that is required of you and your family is regular and scheduled maintenance with daily habits.
It's all about establishing healthy habits
Daily habits look different for everyone. The healthy habits you're going to pick up have to align with you and your family's goals, lifestyle, and the daily function of your home.
Here are a few examples:
-Putting whatever you took out of the pantry back where you found it.
-Dealing with everything you bring in the home such as mail or packages the minute you enter through your door.
-Resist the urge to buy things just because they're on sale! (you don't even have any more space for it)
Scheduled maintenance will become so easy if daily habits are implemented by everyone in the home. Having a home that is organized will give you peace of mind, put order back into your home, saves you time, money, and it will enhance your relationships which then bring happiness.
Peace of mind
Walking into a home that is disorganized and messy after a long day can be the most devastating, frustrating, and stressful thing for a person. Once your home is organized your mind will always be at peace even when the kids make a mess. How? because a good organization is matched with great and functional systems that allow you to be a human being living in real life. Messes happen but with a system in place, you no longer have to let it get to you.
Put order back in your home
Nothing makes a woman feel like she has no control over her life and her home more than a house filled with cluttered. You've spent all day caring for your babies, probably cleaned for the 100th time today with a sink full of dishes! Now you're questioning whether or not you did anything for the day. You’re not you when your home is out of order sis. get it? snicker commercial? Anxiety and depression can start creeping up on you fast. An organized home will make you feel empowered to put order back in it.
Time is the most expensive thing and once it's gone that's it! you can't get it back. I don’t know about you friends but absolutely no one has the time to spend two hours searching for an item that they need only to lose it again under all the piles. Well, organizing will save you that time to spend with your loved ones, do the things you love, and have extra time to visit those great God-giving ideas you put away a long time ago.
If you’re not someone who enjoys saving money then organizing is not for you. Don’t spend your hard-earned money by buying the same items you already have hidden inside your fridge, pantry, and closets. You’re only buying that black dress or the new kitchen appliance because you don’t know where you placed the one you already have! Once your home is organized you will see how much money you can save. If the year 2020 taught us anything, making a wiser decision with our finances is on top of some of our list. Wal-Mart says it best "save money, live better"
