Survey: Organization a top priority for many

If there’s overlap between the United States and Canada when it comes to trends, then Torontonians with an eye for organization should rent their storage units now while they’re still available.

According to an OfficeMax survey, a high percentage of people are adversely affected by their unorganized nature and are determined to seek out improvement.

Included among the findings was that while 32 percent say they’re very organized, a whopping 60 percent said they’re only somewhat organized and wanted to improve.

A high number of respondents also said their messy habits adversely affected their everyday living, as 77 percent said it decreased their productivity, 65 percent said it impacted their state of mind and 40 percent said it negatively impacted their happiness.

One of the most telling findings was what respondents said prevented them from following through on their organizational goals. According to the survey, more than one in four – 26 percent – said there simply wasn’t enough room for their things.

Important documents have a tendency to pile up and take up space. Storing them in mobile storage units could give these same people the peace of mind they need to de-clutter their life without losing sensitive material.
