5 Tips on How to Get Rid of Junk

1. Create a schedule — Organizing your junk can be very overwhelming at the start. An easy easy to break it down it by choosing individual days for specific areas or items. For example, do your kitchen on Monday and then do your living room on Tuesday. Or, do large items on Monday and keepsakes on Tuesday, so on and so forth.

2. Categories — One of the best ways to organize is to begin with two categories: keep or toss. Once everything is sorted, go through each pile again and make your final decision. With the toss pile you can sort that into trash, recycle, donate or sell. Of course when using Fire Dawgs Junk Removal you only need to worry about a basic toss and sell pile because we will pick out the items that can be donated and recycled for you. You’ll even receive a tax receipt! With items you plan to sell make sure you have time within the next week or so otherwise it’s better to just get rid of it!

3. “Keep” Questions — Once you have your initial keep pile, go back through each item and think about why you are keeping it. “Does it have a purpose?” or “have I used this within the last year?”, “Is it something cheap I could simply buy again if needed?”. Obviously some sentimental items are invaluable, even if you don’t use them. But what do you do with them? Create a bin just for those items, that way you aren’t wasting time going through them each time you purge your junk!

4. Pinpoint Problems — Once you’re only left with what you want to keep, process why you had extra stuff to begin with. Are you a paper saver? Many things like these can be scanned, tagged and digitally saved in the future. Not only does it remove all the clutter around your home, but it is easier to find a particular item when needed. Have boxes full of craft items? Buy storage bins with labels to keep them organized so you know what’s there and don’t end up absentmindedly buy more. Keep a donate box in your closet and anytime something doesn’t fit or goes out of style, throw it in the box. Once the box is full, take it to your nearest donation center!

5. Maintain — Congrats, you now have a junk free home! But how do you keep it that way? Anything you bring into your home must have a reason and a place. Every evening spend 10 minutes tidying up can help you identify junk that you want to get rid of. The more you concentrate on keeping spaces clear, the better you will become at maintaining a junk free home!
