A Disorganized Home, Stress, and Family Life

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 familiesThe 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.
