5 Steps to a Junk Free and Carefree Home

Just because spring is a long way off doesn’t mean we have to wait all year to get out homes in order. Maybe you are growing tired of living in the clutter and junk that is piling up. Living in a space that is full of clutter can often lead to a life that is chaotic and overwhelming. Removing the junk from our homes often can help us regain control in other aspects of our lives.

The decluttering process can often be overwhelming, and taking baby steps can be helpful. Following some of these simple steps to get you started on your junk removal process will have your home clutter free before you know it. 

#1 A Place for Paper

Paper seems to be everywhere. Whether it’s in the form of mail, homework, or kids artwork, you name it. It multiples every day and ends up in every room of the house. Pick a place for paperwork and make sure that you don’t put it down anywhere else except the designated spot. This type of organization may require a trip to the store to purchase organizational bins, but it’s worth it not to have papers everywhere and to be able to find something when you need it. Take charge of the papers!

#2 Clear a Counter

If you have counters loaded with clutter, pick one or two counters and start to remove the junk. The goal is to be able to see the countertop. If you have any old or outdated kitchen appliances that you aren’t using put them in a box for donation. There is no need to waste valuable counter space with things that you don’t use on a regular basis.

#3 Clean Your Closet

Closets are home to a lot of items that we no longer need or want. It can often be difficult to go through our closest and get rid of the things that we may have been holding on to for a long time. To make it a little easier, you can ask yourself the following questions, is it ripped, stained or does it need to be repaired? Does it fit? Is it in style? Have you worn it within in the past year? If you assess the items in your closet and determine that they either need repair or no longer fit or aren’t in style, it’s time to give them up and make space for something else.

#4 Schedule a Declutter Weekend

Setting aside a weekend to clear the clutter can often be a great idea to help you get motivated, enlist others to help, gather organizational supplies and schedule a service to haul the junk away like Raleigh Junk Doctors.
