Surprising Financial Statistics

As I was waiting patiently for the elevator today, which seemed like forever, I thought to myself…Hmm I wonder how much time is spent waiting for elevators in one’s lifetime. Which of course led me to wonder how much time is spent being disorganized. So I did a little research and here are some surprising stats:

  • The Wall Street Journal reports that the average U.S. executive wastes 6 weeks/year searching for documents lost in clutter.
  • About 25% of workers save things in piles rather than files.  Source: Taylor Nelson Sofres Intersearch
  • Agency Sales Magazine states that 80% of what we keep we never use.
  • The US Department of Energy reports that 25% of people with 2 car garages do not use the garages for parking and only 32% parked one car.  The irony is that people are leaving their expensive cars in the driveway and on the street, yet their garages are full of stuff Source: NAPO
  • The National Soap and Detergent Association believes getting rid of clutter would eliminate 40 percent of the housework in the average home.
  • Harris Interactive reports that 23% of adults say they pay bills late and incur fees because they lose them.
  • The Self Storage Association estimates that there are almost 40,000 self-storage facilities in the U.S., and the demand for them doubled from 1994 to 2004.

Are you a statistic? 

I truly believe that being organized will save you time, money and give you a sense of peace.
