Staying clutter-free and clean in 2017

There’s nothing more hopeful than a fresh, new year, and with a new year comes a new set of resolutions. Looking for one you can actually keep this year? Studies show that maintaining an organized, de-cluttered life is the foundation on which you can achieve all your other goals. Ready to start 2017 on the right foot? Junk Rescue AZ can help you get organized and stay that way. Here’s how to get started:

Take stock of what you have. The first step to organizing your clutter is figuring out what exactly you have hiding in the depths of your house. Yes, this means a thorough examination of your home, attic, garage, and yard and keeping a list of what you find. Don’t worry this is the hardest part!

Decide what you need. Take a good hard look at what you’ve accumulated over the years. Do you really need all of that stuff? I good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t used it in over a year, or if you forgot it existed until now, you won’t miss it when it’s gone. Also, are you really going to get around to fixing those broken AC units you have sitting in your attic? No. The answer is no.

Figure out what you can upgrade. There’s nothing more annoying than broken appliances and furniture. We know it’s tempting to hang on to that leaky refrigerator or loud washing machine just so you don’t have to shell out cash for new ones, but properly running appliances can actually save you money in the long run. If you can’t afford to upgrade your furniture, then turn small, cost-friendly improvements into a fun DIY weekend project, like reupholstering your couch or sanding and repainting your kitchen table.

Reduce your waste. Throwing all your unwanted junk in the garbage might seem like the easiest solution, but being more socially and environmentally conscious of your unwanted stuff will leave you feeling a bit lighter. Find out what stuff you can donate and recycle. Believe it or not, pretty much everything can be recycled or re-purposed these days, including your old fridge, washing machine and dryer, microwave, and even the old swing set in your backyard.

Sit back, relax, and breathe in that clean air. Really. There’s no better feeling than an
organized, de-cluttered home. Think of what you can accomplish with all that extra space! The sky’s the limit.
