Researchers are learning that a cluttered home can be a stressful home. According to an article in the New York Times last year,
“If you have to move things around in order to accomplish a task in your home or you feel overwhelmed by all your “things,” it’s a strong signal that clutter has prevailed.”
And what home with young children doesn’t suffer from clutter? Whether it’s mild or extreme, if you’ve got kids, you’ve probably got clutter. Especially after the holidays.
The Times continues, “The findings add to a growing body of evidence that clutter can negatively impact mental well-being, particularly among women.” Somehow that doesn’t seem so surprising, does it?
Even when your clutter is nicely organized and stored in a basement or garage, the question of when and what to do with it remains. And that too can be stressful.
Toycycle’s curbside consignment service and our online kids and baby consignment store were designed to solve this problem for busy, stressed parents – read, ALL parents.
Indulge in some chill after you place that pile of stuff on your porch for pick-up. We’ll come get it, sort it, process it and list it for sale in our online consignment store. You can forget all about it. Until you receive a cash payout when it sells. How’s that for cortisol reduction?
