How Does Having Junk In Your Home Impact You?


In recent years, the phenomena of “hoarding” has gotten a lot more attention. This is thanks in part to a formal medical recognition of extreme hoarding as a psychological condition, and in part due to a number of popular TV shows referencing “hoarding.” For many of us, our hoarding is nowhere as extreme as these concepts may lead us to believe; however, there is still a decent chance that clutter and excessive items could be having a negative impact on your life. A recent survey conducted by the Huffington Post found that home organization is a significant source of stress for many Americans. Here are just a few of the ways that clutter can have a real impact:

  • Increases the number of allergens and germs in your home.
  • Creates a fire hazard.
  • Poses other physical risks such as tripping, falling objects, etc.
  • Creates anxiety by making simple objects difficult to find.
  • Fosters stress and a feeling of being overwhelmed.
  • Creates a general feeling of disorganization that can filter into other aspects of your life.


            Decluttering your home is an important lifestyle change that will not happen overnight. However, if you make a real commitment to living in a cleaner, more organized home, it can lead to a number of benefits. Organizing and storing items is a good place to start, however, for many people who have issues with clutter, this will not solve the root cause of the problem. If you have a problem with clutter, there is a good chance you may be hoarding to some degree.  Though your home may not be worthy of a TV show, there is a good chance that you stand to benefit from ridding yourself of items that you no longer use.
