How to Clear Out Your Home’s Accumulated Junk

Junk can take over your home if you’re not careful. It’s amazing how much better people feel once they’ve decluttered their homes. Even if you don’t notice your junk anymore, you’re still subconsciously aware of it, and it might make you feel restless, disorganized, and anxious. Here are some tips for getting rid of your junk as easily as possible.

Getting Started

It helps to tackle one room at a time rather than trying to do the whole house at once and getting discouraged. Maybe you can do one room each weekend. You should get four large boxes for each room. One box is for things that need to be moved to other rooms. The second is for items you want to sell. Some things are too valuable to throw out, so plan to sell them on eBay or Facebook or at a yard sale. The third box is for things you want to throw out. The fourth is for things you want to keep in that room.

Decluttering a Room

In each room you clean out, take each item in the room (except for the furniture) and put it into one of the four boxes mentioned above. Make sure to evaluate each item, and don’t keep too much. If you don’t use something on a regular basis, consider getting rid of it. When you’re done with the room, you can put away all the things in the “keep” box. Your room should look a lot neater now. Save the “move” box until you’ve cleaned out all the rooms. Then you can take the items in that box and distribute them to the rooms they belong in.

Keeping or Getting Rid of Larger Items

Don’t forget about your larger possessions, such as furniture and appliances. Consider whether you really need all of them. Walk through your rooms and see if you can get rid of any of these items. If you can, consider hiring a Dallas, TX, furniture removal and appliance disposal company to haul them away for you. If a room still looks cluttered, it might have too much furniture in it. Think about getting rid of some of your furniture—or at least storing it, if you can’t bear to part with it. If you do store some items, look at them again a year later and see if your opinion has changed. By that time, you may be ready to get rid of them for good.

Hiring a Junk Removal Service
