The start of the New Year and the resolutions that accompany it make January the perfect time to get serious about becoming better organized mentally and physically. According to experts, better organization lowers stress and increases productivity.

Did you know:

  • American women spend 55.2 minutes per day looking for lost or misplaced items
  • 80 percent of the clutter in your home is a result of disorganization not lack of space
  • 28 percent of adults pay their bills late (with fees) because they lose them

Stop by Bellevue and check out our display on the third floor all month long. There, you'll find many books filled with tips and tricks on how to become clutter free and lower your stress level by doing so.
