Go into any store at this time of year and you’ll already see Christmas displays in the windows. The holiday season seems to start two months before the actual holiday. If you’re a homeowner it’s way too early about decorating your home. Yet, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start to prepare for the holidays. To not only make the home look better, but just as importantly, to have more room.
Are you having family or friends over sometime during the holidays? Are your kids already making a wish list for Santa? Will a Christmas tree be the centerpiece of your living room? If you answered yes to any of these, then it wouldn’t hurt to think ahead about what needs to be done for the home. And to consider hiring a junk removal company to help haul away some of the items in your home, and some things outside, as well.
Make Space to Celebrate the Holidays
If you’re entertaining friends or family at Thanksgiving or at Christmas, you
want your home to look spacious. When the tree does go up, you’ll also likely need to take some items out of the room. Obviously you’re not discarding these items, but you do have to find space for them in other rooms. So get items out of the attic or the basement to make room for these items.
Go through the other rooms, especially where you’ll store items and get rid of anything that is broken or no longer needed. Most likely, as you go, you’ll end up with a lot more space than you expected and a lot more junk than you planned on. You can start setting it out for the city to remove, but you’re limited on what you can have them haul. A junk removal company can haul it all at once and do most of the heavy lifting, as well.
In addition to clearing out the large items, take advantage of the services of the junk removal company and get rid of smaller stuff as well. Clean out the refrigerator of out of date items, the cupboard of old items, and out of date clothing. You have a truck on the way to haul your junk why not fill it up with as much as you can. This will save you trying to dispose of it at a later time. You have the time now so put it to use.
Make Room for Christmas Gifts
If your kids are expecting a lot of new toys at Christmas, finding space for them in their room might be a challenge as well. You don’t want to be tripping over things long after Christmas has passed. Why not get rid of the toys they no longer use. And in their room are a number of broken toys, clothing that no longer fits, and school supplies that are no longer used. Add these to your items to be hauled away.
What About the Outside
The snow hasn’t fallen yet, and maybe not all of the leaves, as well. Once again you have a truck coming to pick up your junk, then why not have them take away your yard waste. This will not only make the yard look better now; it will keep you from having to clean up all the yard waste after a long winter. This way you can enjoy the outdoors in the spring and not spend the time raking, but enjoying the warmer weather.
Make Other People’s Holidays Better
As you go through things you’re likely to find items that still might have some value, such as old clothing or appliances that still work, but which no are no longer used. These items should be donated to people who need them. This is something you can do yourself, but if you don’t have the time you can add them to the list of things to be hauled. Most reputable junk removal companies don’t just take everything to the nearest landfill. Instead they go through it and look for anything that can be recycled or reused. Any reusable items they donate to charities, so you can take some solace in the fact that your junk might be benefiting others during the holiday season.
Despite what the stores are telling us, there is still plenty of time before the holidays arrive. Yet, once Thanksgiving is close your time will be occupied with shopping and decorating. Take advantage of the time you have now to get the house cleaned out and ready.
