For some people, the will to keep a house decluttered is contrary to their subconscious inability to simply let stuff go. What often winds up happening is people play a simulated game of Tetris with their stuff, moving it from room to room, packing boxes in as neat a pattern as possible. The problem with that is the house remains cluttered, creating habitat for bugs and mice and possibly even becoming a fire hazard. To truly clear space in your home, you need to secure a junk bin rental.
Open Up More Living Space and Declutter Using a Garbage Bin
How many people do you know that own a garage so full of junk that they can’t even get their car inside? If you also fit that description, then you are a prime candidate for a decluttering session. No matter what your reason or what rooms you want to declutter, the job starts with a waste bin rental. Consider the three sizes of disposal bin rentals currently available through Junk Out:
Five cubic yard bins – used only for aggregate materials like concrete, bricks, soil, and dirt.
Ten cubic yard bins – often a choice for people limited in spaces to put a full-sized bin.
Fourteen cubic yard bins – the most popular choice for people decluttering, renovating or demolishing rooms in their homes and offices.
Each bin has its own merits and can be quickly delivered so you can start the process of decluttering. A junk bin rental is a commitment to change; you’ve probably thought about clearing space in your home, even hauling the odd garbage bag out on garbage day for curbside pickup. However, there are limitations to what you can throw out for municipal garbage pickup, and making a run to the dump takes time, effort, and a proper vehicle. When you see that garbage bin rental sitting in your driveway, you’ve only got one real choice – maximize its use. That means filling it with the stuff you no longer want or need, from old books and magazines to old electronics to toys and furniture. The question is, where do you begin?
Analyze the Usefulness of Everything in Your Home to Help Clear Space
You may never have gotten around to doing a truly thorough living-space-creating decluttering of your home. That means going through every room, your garage, your shed, your basement, your attic, and that creepy cold-storage room where spiders like to hang out. To make it a productive exercise, you need to take a good hard look at everything you have and ask the question – do I need it? There are some things with sentimental value that you can never part with, but that collection of TV guide magazines is probably not one of them. You could start by creating a list of things you might want to sell at a garage sale or sites like Kijiji. Again, that takes time and effort to organize, promote and execute, knowing full well you’ll be spending a Saturday haggling with people who want to save a quarter on the hammer you priced at fifty cents. However, if you go through your house and make a list of all the things you no longer want, the next step is simple; start carrying it all out to your disposal bin rental and free up space in your world. You’ll quickly see that decluttering is like a breath of fresh air.
