If you’ve lived in your current home for any length of time, you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff. It’s not that you try to do so or do it on purpose, but these items just seem to pop up and be placed in a corner over time. While you’re probably not considered a hoarder, you probably do have a few impractical or unsafe things that shouldn’t be kept in your living space. Things like broken clocks (or broken anything), old magazines, damaged chairs, picture frames that are coming apart and rusty toolboxes may all gravitate to a small corner of the shed or home to be forgotten about until spring cleaning, renovations, or a move.
What To Do
The first thing to do is pick one room, especially if your whole house seems to be a junkyard. If you’ve used it in the last six months to a year, keep it. If you haven’t, determine your reasoning. Is it broken or does it need some repairs to make it look nice again? Will you truly do the work to fix it or would it be easier to throw it away and buy a new one?
Create three piles of things you need/want to keep, things that could be donated to charity and things that have to be thrown away because they’re useless to anyone.
The Next Step
Once you’ve got your pile of throw-away things, it’s time to determine the best way to dispose of them. You could bag them up and put one bag with regular trash each week until it’s all gone, but that’s a slow and tedious process.
The best thing to do is call Skip Hire Group to bring you a skip bin. You can toss all your rubbish into the container and have it removed for you safely.
