The Real Cost of Clutter on your Mental and Physical Health

As a Professional Home Organizer, I know all to well the cost that clutter can have on one's well being. It can really take a hold of all aspects of your life when it gets out of control.

Here are some Key areas Clutter can take ahold of your mental and physical well-being:


Increased cortisol levels, especially in women. Cortisol is a hormone associated with chronic stress.


Feeling less satisfaction with life overall.


Being embarrassed by the clutter, causing you to feel an increased sense of isolation and fear, especially of inviting anyone over. This is one way hoarding contributes to depression and anxiety.


Sensory overload, triggered by a messy space, which may result in memory issues.

But the good news is.. it doesn't have to be this way! When you put the proper systems in order, the home can run very smoothly. I offer 30 free minute consultations, where I can walk you through a plan that will work for you and your family. Your calm and peace is just around the corner
