No matter how well you plan, getting rid of clutter ultimately results in trash. Sometimes this can become a little more than you can handle on your own. There are a few things you can do to make life easier when you’re left with a large amount of unwanted items. Here are a few clutter and trash removal tips.

Trash Removal Tips

  • Make a Plan: make a list of the specific rooms and places you want to de-clutter. Then start to tackle them working one room at a time.
  • Make Piles for Organization: when de-cluttering, the first thing you want to do it pick a room. Then, separate the items you sort through into three different piles: keep, sell/donate/give away, and trash/recycle. The “keep” pile should be filed away from the other piles to prevent them from being given away or thrown out. The sell/donate/give away pile should be separated into mini piles and separated from the rest. Same goes for trash and recycling. It helps to bring a trash can and recycling bin so you can toss things accordingly as you work.
  • Use your Best Judgement: One of the toughest parts of de-cluttering is remaining unbiased as you go item to item. It’s easy to talk yourself into keeping sentimental things, but this should be kept to a minimum. As you come across items, ask yourself a few questions: Can I live without it? Will I replace this if I throw it out? Have I used this in the last six months? If the answer to these questions is “no,” then throw it in the toss pile.
