Change Your Habit, Not Your Habitat

kirill-zakharov-630681-unsplashJunk has a way of piling up in the house. Even when you try organizing and decluttering a space day after day, staying on top of clutter can seem almost impossible. With a little help from your Orlando junk removal team, you’ll be able to get rid of bulky clutter. But it takes more than purging your home to keep clutter from coming back. Instead of dramatically changing your habitat, change your habits. Here are a few easy things you can do to keep the clutter at bay.

Put Things Back In the Same Place

Clutter builds up quickly, but the easiest way to keep clutter from collecting is to put items back where you found them. Create a designated spot for the most commonly used items in your house. When you use them or simply see those items lying around, put them back in the designated spot. Over time, you’ll get in the habit of putting items back where you found them, making it easier to find them while also reducing the amount of clutter around the house.

Get Rid of Junk Frequently

Junk removal is more of an ongoing process rather than a once-in-a-blue-moon occurrence. Any time you see the garage start to overflow with junk or notice that your closet is starting to get a bit too full, go through your stuff. Items that you haven’t used in years or no longer need should be gotten rid of. The same holds true for items that are broken or in a state of disrepair — if you’re not going to fix them, throw them away. For best results, go through your stuff every six months.

Get Smart About Shopping

Buying items because they’re on sale or you think it’s a great deal can lead to a buildup of clutter in your home. When browsing items in the store, consider whether or not you really need the product. If you know you’ll use it frequently or are confident your family can go through a large package of a particular food or beverage, then buying it won’t contribute to clutter in the long run. However, if you’re not sure that the item will get used or already have similar items at home, put it back on the shelf and walk away.

Keeping your home clutter-free is always easier said than done, but by changing your habit, not your habitat, you’ll find it easier to stay organized.
