Would you believe that a disorganized home is creating stress for American families today?
Many of us minimize the impact of stress on our health and well-being. Home organization, it turns out is a major source of stress for American families. The Huffington Post reports that “home organization was as much of a stress trigger for recently-stressed Americans as:
- unexpected expenses (also 47 percent),
- not having enough time for loved ones (46 percent), and
- not having enough time to yourself (45 percent). “
When it comes to managing the household and finances, having a shared roadmap can reduce anxiety and that includes every member of your household.
Home disorganization is also costing American families more than $58 billion dollars — at least that was what CCNMoney reported is the amount of unclaimed money sitting with state and federal treasurers. Loved ones are just unaware of both physical and financial assets during a crisis or upon death and they eventually end up in the very large “unclaimed money” coffers.
To start your roadmap, you can download a free list that includes all of the documents, accounts, and details you should have organized. Not only will it benefit you when you need to find information, but it will assist a loved one that may need to step in and help you.
Consider doing just one thing to get better organized today.
