A Good Opportunity to De-Clutter

Posted on

We all know that going through with a home or office removal can be a real pain not just mentally but also physically as well. Even though house removals can be mentally taxing and very stressful especially when there is a deadline involved in the move but having a home or office removal opens some doors you haven’t had time for until now. As we live we start to collect things that we don’t need or we save things that we know we will never use again and during a removal is the best time to get rid of some of the clutter that has built up over the years.

There are many ways to get rid of the clutter and depending on how impeding time is, you may not be able to do them all. The most common thing to do with the clutter is to just pitch a lot of things into the trash especially old papers or newspapers some of tend to collect. The second is to donate what you can such as old clothes, dishes that you never use or even some old workout equipment you won’t have room for in your new place. The third thing you can do to get rid of the clutter is to have a yard-sale; of course this can only be done if you have the time and in this day and age time is always a precious resource for most of us.

If you come across things that are perfect for donation such as clothes that don’t fit anymore or old winter clothes that you are willing to donate then there are many charity organizations that you can actually schedule for them to pick up these things. There is no point carrying these kinds of things along to a new place if they will never be used. Make a separate area for things you find that you want to donate and schedule for a charity to pick them up ahead of time so you won’t have to worry about it later.

If you have a lot of old papers, then during the home removals is a good time to get rid of those papers you haven’t seen in years and really serve no purpose now. Such as electric bills that are years old. In today’s times with all the identity theft that takes place it is a good idea not to just crumple up any papers containing personal information and tossing them into the trash, if you can shred them and then throw them out in the trash bin. This is not 100% necessary but it is one of those things “better safe than sorry”.

For those that have the time and have no deadline they have to meet then it is a good idea to make some money off the things that have built up over the years if you can of course, then why not? Whatever you don’t want to throw out or donate but can’t be taken then arrange a moving sale a couple of days before you are gone. Many people do this just to defray the moving costs; it is always good to be in the green.

Some of the things that can be classified as clutter are things such as winter/summer clothes from when you were about two sizes bigger or smaller, dishes that you haven’t unpacked since your last move, boxes of old bills and junk mail that you thought you might need in the future but haven’t touched them in years among many other things. For the things that you just can’t part with but don’t have room for in your location then talk with your removal company if using one and it is likely they will offer storage services or know of some that are good to use.
