Declutter your life: A Junk Removal How To


DeclutterIt happens quite often that we sometimes find ourselves dealing with messes that we’ve made that follow us around like a shadow; clutter in our homes. It comes to a point where we huff and puff and instead of blowing the house down, we just close the door and walk away. It seems to be the simplest way to dealing with a problem until we realize “Okay, I need to do this.” So let’s get down to business shall we? The major problem with removing junk and decluttering is becoming overwhelmed when in the midst of a project. Here is a simple checklist to help fight the battle:

  • Figure out your true reasoning for decluttering. By figuring out why your purpose is to declutter, you set personal goals for yourself and have your mind set on the prize.
  • Put your junk in a trunk. Here is the fun yet grueling part; identifying which items to throw away and which to salvage. Ask yourself the simple question, “Have I used this within the past year?”, “Does this item hold personal significance?” Be honest with yourself, this’ll help your process.
  • Have different piles. Not all junk is considered waste. For some, “A mans trash is another mans treasure”. Create designated piles: To donate, to sell, to throw away, etc. By doing this, it makes the clutter look less like a chore and more like a step to a brighter future.
  • Keep yourself decluttered. Don’t make the same mistake twice. Once your space is organized and staged in a way that pleases you, try your best to keep it in that state. Who want to declutter all over again?

Remember, if all else fails and you just want it gone and never have to look at it again, Redbins Disposal offers Junk Removal Services in the GTA, just call in for your free quote. Have a great day everyone and good luck with decluttering!
