Have you constantly tried and failed to organize your belongings? Do you find it impossible to decide what to keep and what to toss? Do you know how to get rid of the things you no longer want or need? Let our team at Junk Angel help you begin the process today.
Go Room by Room
First, understand that organization is not something you’ll likely get done in a single day or weekend. It will be an ongoing process, but you will eventually reach a point where everything is sorted. Pick a day when you’ll have several hours to devote to organizing, then select a room and start there.
Set a Timer
To prevent feeling overwhelmed or distracted, set a timer for 30 minutes. When the timer goes off, take a break. Reward yourself with a snack, a brisk walk, or a phone call to a friend. After 30 minutes, reset the timer and get back on task. Working in short, timed bursts makes organizing feel less like a chore and more like a job with both short and long-term rewards.
Make Wise Decisions
If you have duplicate items, is one more useful than another? Does it have more features? For example, you may have two vacuum cleaners but one is missing its attachments and you rarely use it. If an item has outlived its functionality, it’s time to get rid of it.
Next, consider the sentimental value of each item. You hate to part with that antique table your great aunt gave you even though it’s not your style, but someone else in your family might love to have it. Give things away to friends and neighbors too.
Get a Dumpster for the Big Junk
Local landfills charge fees for appliances, large items like furniture, and when there are too many items to leave at the curb. Renting a dumpster is the affordable, easy way to rid of everything in one fell swoop.
Change Your Habits
Once you’ve invested the time and energy it takes to get your home organized, you’ll want it to stay that way. Think carefully about every item you bring into your house. Ensure that it’s necessary, useful, and will bring you joy when you use it or look at it.
