- Money spent to initially acquire the good
- Money spent to store the good (“rent”)
- Money spent to move the good
- Mental agonizing over clutter
- Cleaning and finding things made more difficult because of clutter
- Cost (either financial or in time) to get rid of clutter when you finally realize you don’t need it
Oh dear, clutter is SUCH a black hole. I need to work harder in both the “trying to avoid acquiring in the first place” and “getting rid of excess clutter” departments!
