We know, we know: Despite your best intentions, you bought people nice presents and received some in return. Now you have that much more stuff that you have to find a place for and deal with. But it’s not too late to resolve to declutter in the new year -- and bonus, you could save yourself up to three months of wasted time.
It turns out that we all spend a stupid amount of time wandering around our homes, trying to find stuff we probably didn't need to begin with, CNN reports:
[National Association of Professional Organizers] Industry Member Director Mary Dykstra says that on average, Americans waste time amounting to between six and 12 weeks a year searching for things in their offices and homes.
Now, one option would be to go out and buy a bunch more stuff to organize the stuff you already have. But another is option is simply to have less stuff.
