National Old Stuff Day
Celebrate By Cleaning Out Your Attic
Observed on March 2nd, National Old Stuff Day celebrates the old things in your life and encourages you to try new ones! If you’re like most homes, there is a storage place you kind find plenty of old items: your attic. And to try something new, you can sort through your old belongings and clear out the clutter. In honor of National Old Stuff Day, we’re going over the things you can do to make your attic cleanout easier than ever.
Celebrate National Old Stuff Day by Cleaning Your Attic
It’s fitting that National Old Stuff Day is celebrated nearing the springtime. That’s because your attic temperature isn’t regulated like other areas of your home and can have extreme heat or cold, so the best time of year to clean your attic is in the spring or fall when the temperatures are mild.
- Take inventory of every item in your attic, and make three piles: keep, donate/sell, and trash. If items are too big to make into piles, consider using the post-it-note method. Get three different colors of post-it notes and place them securely on your belongings.
- If you’re having a hard time parting with sentimental items like kids’ artwork, consider photographing them so you have digital copies that stay safe for years to come.
- Once you’re left with your “keep” items, organize everything in large tubs or install shelving to keep things in order.
Out with the Old? Hire a junk hauling company.
Are you going to put everything out by the trash and properly recycle or donate all of the items you don’t want anymore? It’s easiest to work with an organization like JDog Junk Removal & Hauling who will do it all for you. One of the best parts of hiring with a junk hauling company for your attic cleanout is that you don’t need to haul everything downstairs yourself!
