Clutter takes a number of forms. But what it really comes down to three types: necessary, sentimental, and downright unnecessary. Once you’ve separated your clutter into these groups, you can get rid of the things you don’t need or want.┬áHere’s more about sorting old items to prep for trash removal.

Necessary Clutter

Useful household items that take up counter and floorspace plague everyone. The key to this kind of clutter is organization. An organized, clutter-free home benefits people in many ways. It causes less stress, promotes motivation, and creates a peaceful environment. Finding the right place for all your possessions can go a long way in promoting a healthy, happy space.

Sentimental Clutter

There are a number of items that qualify for this category. Take some time to save the items that take priority over others. For example, your baby blanket might be more keep-worthy than the T-shirt you were wearing when you caught that foul ball. Here’s a helpful hint for those of us who struggle to part ways with precious memories: take pictures. Letting your items live on digitally takes up space in your computer instead of in your home.

Unnecessary Clutter

This kind of clutter is the most troublesome. Those odds and ends around the house that you keep around just in case you’ll need it some day. While this can prove to be convenient in some situations, it can also result in excessive amounts of clutter. Try giving away functional items that can still be used and tossing the rest.
