If you keep stepping on or avoiding stuff on the floor, can’t offer your couch to someone who has to stay the night, or find stuff that you don’t even use, then it’s time to unclutter and get rid of stuff you do not need.
But before you haul out all the stuff inside the room, you need a have a system. You accumulated the stuff over many years, so there could be something that you need among the clutter and some things you can put to good use. Sometimes you have to be creative to remove stuff that occupies precious space.
Do you still remember when you first entered your new home, and everything had its place, and there was still so much floor space? But then you started accumulating stuff, because there was a sale, you received gifts you did not need, shopped impulsively on some occasions, or bought some items you thought looked good at first, all of which needed storage space.
An unused room in the house then became a storage room. You probably threw things into the room because you were just too lazy, or intended to organize them during the weekend. If you’re in such a situation, then cleaning time will be extended indefinitely; here is what you should do.
Start slowly. If this is your first time to remove junk from your home, build your momentum by starting slowly. You do not have to do your decluttering task in one go. Giving yourself at least five minutes each day will help.
Sort the items. Some of the stuff you have may not be junk at all. Sort the things that are inside the room. Segregate them and identify which ones to throw away, recycle, donate, or keep. Be sure to go through all items you find inside the room. This method will help you identify what you need and what to give or throw away.
Go through your closet. For sure, you have several items of clothing that you never wear. Instead of occupying space, pack those clothes and donate them to a charity or your local community caring for the less privileged.
Be objective. Sometimes you get attached to some stuff, and you do not want to part with some things, thinking that they might be useful someday. Just like clothes, it is essential to remain objective so that you can put the things into the individual boxes. Getting a friend to help sort through your accumulated stuff and approve your choices might make decluttering easier.
Fill trash bags. Fill up trash bags immediately to prevent you from having second thoughts on some items. Label the bags according to your four sorting bins so you’ll know where each bag should go.
Choose any tip that will get you started. Once you’ve cleaned out the room, call a junk removal Miami company to haul the stuff you need to throw away.
