Trash Removal: How to Minimize the Waste in your Life
Tips for creating a clutter-free space
If you’re living in a cluttered environment, rest assured that there’s an escape. Here’s how investing in professional trash removal can help you reach your goal.
Go Room by Room
Like any project, you want to break the work into chunks to prevent yourself from becoming overwhelmed. Take one room at a time, relishing your progress as you go. As you clean, create piles: a give-away pile, a keep-and-store pile, and a junk pile. The junk pile should consist of items you no longer use, need, or want to be collected by a junk removal company when you’re finished de-cluttering.
Keep Only the Essentials
As you go room to room, it’s a challenge to decide what to keep and what to toss. As with the room-by-room idea, take each item one at a time. Keep items you use on a regular basis, store the items you use once in a while, and toss things you can live without or haven’t used in an extended period of time. Once you’ve rid the room of non-essential items and stored the other items, you can begin to re-fill it with caution.
Keep Storage Out of Plain View
Storing items in shelves, behind glass, and in other visible areas can give the illusion of clutter. Try to keep storage in closets, cabinets, drawers, and other out-of-sight places to create a sense of calm.
Clear Out Storage Areas
If you are clearing flat surfaces and the floor, and storing stuff in cabinets and drawers, you’ll probably want to declutter your storage areas too. You can do this in a later stage if you want.
Create a Dedicated Place for Every Item
Having a place for everything saves you from the chaos of living in clutter. As you do a cleanup, choose a convenient place for each item you’re holding onto and keep it there.
