Is your yard the embarrassment of your neighborhood? Is your attic or basement full of junk that has been collecting over the years that you absolutely know you are never going to use? Prepare to unclutter your home and unclutter your life. Here are some tips towards simplifying your life and getting rid of unwanted junk and a referral to a company who will dispose of all your old, unwanted possessions.

Maintaining Your Yard

During the dreary months of winter, it’s easy to hide a poorly kept lawn, but during spring and summer, the snow has melted and your lawn is visible to the world. Cleaning a yard can be a daunting task, especially following the winter season. Try not to be overwhelmed, and plan caring for your lawn in small increments. On your calendar, set aside one Saturday a month that you will devote to gardening and cleaning. For the remaining weeks, plan to spend one hour on a day that is convenient for you, doing small tasks like repainting a bird house or pruning your plant hangers. The key to success is breaking down the greater projects of maintenance into small, manageable tasks.

Tackling the Basement and the Attic

It is so easy to let things pile up in our basements and attics. We often save things because there is a small chance that we may need them some day, but in reality, we are just creating clutter. Here are a few helpful tips for cracking down on house clutter. Plan seasonal cleanouts. Going into the basement once a year to get rid of unwanted junk is not enough. As you transition from season to season, get rid of things that are not practical to keep. For all the things you keep in storage, set a limited number of boxes that you will keep. As soon as you exceed that number, it is time to purge your possessions. It’s easy to let the kids toys pile up, so it’s helpful to bargain. Each time you purchase a new toy, an old one must go. Keep a small box or hamper in your child’s room marked giveaway so that as your child outgrows toys, he or she has a place to put them.

Once keeping the clutter out of our life becomes a habit, it’s easy. Now you just need help from the professionals in actually getting the junk off of your property.
