If you’re like many Americans, you suddenly find yourself working out of your home. Or your home because your job or school is on temporary hiatus.
Whatever the reason it might start to feel a little cramped. It might not be your imagination. It could be that clutter that has accumulated over the years has started to take away your living space.
A broken vacuum doesn’t take up much room when you put if off to the side. But as you add a broken table, old clothing, a recliner you no longer use and the kid’s bikes, the items start to add up. So does the amount of room they take up.
Even if it’s just your attic or basement that is overcrowded it could be that other rooms are impacted, as well. You might have a table or some winter clothing you don’t want to get rid of but just pack away. Yet, all that space is taken up by clutter.
The simple solution is to get rid of it all. And this might be a good time to go through everything and clear a lot of it out. It’s a way to occupy your time and get some work done around the home.
Right away this sounds like a lot of work. First you have to gather everything up you want to get rid of. Then you have to find a way to dispose of it all.
But how do you do that if you don’t have a pickup truck at your disposal? Or if you, don’t want to spend an afternoon traveling to the local landfill to then unload it all.
You might consider having the city pick it up. That means getting it all bundled and bagged up. And if there is a lot of stuff, then you might have to schedule two trips.
Another problem is that some of the junk might be building materials left over from that home remodeling project you did a couple of years ago. Most cities won’t accept construction debris.
There are a simple solution and one that will make the work go a lot quicker. That is to hire a junk removal company.
No need to bag or tag or fill up a garbage can. Just toss it and your work is done. And if you don’t want to let strangers into your home at this particular time, there are options.
Dig Deep into Your Belongings
Most likely you already have a list in your head of what to get rid of. Those items that you’ve set aside in the basement, attic or a closet that you always intended to get rid of.
Yet, what about the items you hadn’t thought of disposing of.
Think of this as spring cleaning on steroids. Look around the home and peek into closets or move about the attic. Look for things you no longer use or wear. Clothes that are out of date, kids’ belongings they’ve long outgrown.
This is the perfect time to do an audit of all your belongings and assess what you really need.
Don’t Forget the Garage or Outdoor Space
It might not just be the home you feel constricted in. Do you get out of your car and find yourself maneuvering carefully so you don’t bump into something? Or can’t even open the door all the way because of the items along the side.
Clearing out the garage might entail getting rid of old landscaping tools or sleds that your kids stopped using long ago. There are bound to be a few things you could get rid of.
There also might be items you want to get rid of around the yard. It could be as simple as broken branches or other yard waste.
Yet, you might have an old swing set or shed that is gradually falling apart. Or a broken hot tub. A junk removal company can dismantle and haul everything away.
It Doesn’t All Have to Go to the Landfill
As you make your review you may come across items that you no longer want, but which are still in good condition. Perfect. These are items that you could sell later at a garage sale or better yet, donate to a local charity.
When considering donating items look them over carefully. Would you still use it if you needed to? They don’t want items that are damaged or worn.
And there are certain items they won’t take such as if you have a pet or one of the occupants was a smoker.
Anything made of particle board is often rejected.
Making a trip to the local charity might not be an option right given the circumstances.
