Save Money By Cleaning Your Home

Hoarding is a compulsive disorder in which people buy and hold on to things until they barely have space in their home to move freely.  Whether you are a hoarder or just a person that buys a bit much cleaning your home regularly can save you lots of money.  When you start buying things to the point where you lose track of what you own you risk overspending by purchasing items you will never have a use for.  Make a rule that you will never buy new items without getting rid of old ones first. The math is simple if you add but never subtract at some point you will run out of space in your home and lose money in the process.

Sell your items online or via a yard sale to pay for new ones this works well with clothes and electronics.  When cleaning the most important place to start is in your kitchen if your refrigerator is a mess you risk buying more food than you need and having food go bad regularly this is a health hazard.  Do yourself a favor and clean out your fridge regularly get in the habit of checking expiration dates and keeping a close eye on what goes in and out.  Spoiled food will contaminate all the food in your fridge costing you money not only by making all the food in your fridge unedible but also affecting your health and adding to your health care costs.  Bacteria reproduces quickly you may not be able to see it but if you get food poisoning or infections from your home the missed days of work and visits to the doctor add up.  I like to keep my home free of clutter everything is accounted for and old items I no longer need get sold or thrown out before new items are purchased.  You should take out trash regularly and practice good hygiene I suggest to disinfect all handles, doorknobs, keyboards, light switches and faucets often.  Hands carry a lot of germs you will be surprised at how often without noticing you touch (80% of infectious diseases are transmitted by touch) your face (germs enter your body through the eyes, nose and mouth) without ever washing your hands.

When your home is finally clean it will be much easier to maintain, you will feel good about yourself and save plenty of money all while enjoying better health.
