Calculating the Cost of Cutter

It might be hard to calculate how much havoc clutter is causing you in terms of lost peace of mind, loss of time, and most importantly the energy drain that it is on your life.


But there is one form of potential energy that is easily quantifiable, and that's money. Check out the clutter calculator below to see how much clutter in your home or workplace is costing you. 


clutter calculator instructions:

  1. List each room or area in your house, up to 16 spaces, or list your whole house as one space. Remember to consider attics, basements, and garages.

  2. Fill in the percentage of each room or area that you feel is given over to clutter. Be sure to include the closets within each space. 

  3. Click calculate to see the results. If you changed any variables, click the calculate button to see updated results. 

  4. Take a screenshot for your records and get other members of your household to fill it out as well.

  5. For additional shock value you can use your personal calculator to multiply the annual total by the number of years it's been like that, or the number of years it will remain that way. 

This number represents the amount of untapped potential energy contained in your home.  It is also your budget for hiring someone to help you, getting furniture that sparks joy, and most importantly, giving yourself permission to devote time and resources to the essential project of tidying up.

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately and in the long run.”  – Henry David Thoreau
