Getting Organized for the Holidays with Junk Removal

With the holidays just around the corner, you’re probably thinking of ways to get prepared for the season. Junk removal can help you make space for decorations, gifts, and celebrations; but, it all starts with organization.

The 24 Hour Junk Team is here with some tips to help you get organized for the holidays.

Sort and Group Items

When you start sorting items, you want to think about grouping similar items. You can also start considering which items you want to keep and which items you want to remove. In your closets, you can organize shirts and pants into similar groups, purses can be stored in other purses, and scarfs can be grouped on a single hanger. Ultimately, the main benefit of sorting and grouping items is it can help you create space while also giving you more time with you things to decide if they’re important enough to keep.

A Place for Everything

In the same vein as sorting and grouping items, consider creating a specific place in your home for different items. In the kitchen, store ingredients in jars so they are visible. You can use this strategy for spices, tea, dried goods, and other non-perishable items that you use regularly. For closets, you can use drawers or shelves for specific items…and maybe even use labels so you can easily find items.

Holiday Junk Removal

When the Kids are Away…

It’s always going to be easier to declutter the home when your kids aren’t there – especially if you want to remove old toys, games, books, and clothes. Donating lightly used items including toys and clothing during the holiday season can make a big difference in the lives of less fortunate kids; and the 24 Hour Junk Team can make sure that useful items are delivered to charitable organizations so they don’t end up in landfill.

Less Clutter is the Gift

Cleaning out cupboards, drawers, closets, and storage rooms can not only allow you to remove junk from your home but frees up space so the rooms of your home have less clutter. When you have guests coming through during the holidays, it’s nice to present them with a well-organized home. Consider the impact on all the spaces in your home including foyers, spare bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens. The holidays are the perfect time to give yourself the gift of a clutter-free home.

Love It or Leave It

Finally, the most important tip the 24 Hour Junk Team can give you when you’re getting organized for the holidays is to remove any items that you don’t absolutely love. Items that have been hidden away in the back of a drawer or closet are hardly items that make an impact in your daily lives. You should also consider the love it or leave it approach to your holiday decorations. And remember, that just because something is junk to you, doesn’t mean it’s junk to everyone. The 24 Hour Junk Team collects all your junk and transports it to the most appropriate location – for recycling, donation, and if necessary to landfill.
