The Cost of Disorganization

Office Depot conducted a poll of 2,500 people (representative of the U.S. household population, 18+ on age, gender, geographic division, income and household size, household designation and market size) during November 2006.

The participants reported significant costs from being disorganized:
- 61% said the biggest frustration with their disorganized environment is that they can’t find what they need quickly.
- 51% are concerned about missing important deadlines or appointments.
- 34% reported losing 15 minutes or more per day due to disorganization.
- 27% said they find it hard to concentrate with messy files around.
- 15% said they can't find receipts when they go to do their taxes.
