For the New Year, a lot of people plan to clean house, literally and figuratively. Clutter does more than create dust and crowd spaces.
According to a recent survey by UK Blinds retailer Blinds Hut, 82% of people’s mood is affected by clutter in some way.
In fact, recent studies have shown that the average person has 3,370 cubic feet of their home packed with items that they rarely or never use. The researchers explained how clutter impacts on our senses and make it difficult to focus on important or difficult tasks.
Clutter can invade both our physical and mental space, stopping us from thinking creatively and productively. More findings about clutter include:
- 66.5% of people have argued over clutter with a cohabitant
- 10% of the public wait months before dealing with clutter
- Nearly a quarter of respondents admitted to having worn less than 25% of the clothes in their wardrobe in the past year.
- We keep Over $10 Billion worth of unused clothes in our wardrobes.
