BRRR! Handling Junk When Its Cold Outside

Cleaning up debris at a construction site

Not quite ready for a full spring cleaning?

Ok, so you might not be a hoarder by the world’s standards, but you also might not be ready to completely clean or gut a house. That is ok, sometimes just starting small is a good idea. Here are a few ideas to help you declutter – even when it is cold outside…

Ideas Handling Junk when its Cold…

1. Sort your room contents into piles.

2. Find containers, bags or baskets to sort and label the containers.

3. Prepare for junk removal professionals to come in and haul stuff away.

4. Purchase gift certificates from a reputable trash service (to send the hoarder in your life some love). These could be given to a loved one or even used by YOU at a later date when money might be tighter for you than it is today! SAVE for tomorrow!!

5. Start small with a daily or hourly goal to go through stuff – one ‘bite’ at a time. Remember, Rome was not built in a day!

6. Rent a storage unit – but this can sometimes be much more costly than just contacting a trash removal services (such as DITR).

7. Secure items from cold weather:

     A. Tarp plants or give them away.

     B. Protect pets and animals.

     C. Look for unexpected items that can be recycled.

     D. Find local women’s shelters or homeless shelters that can use items – such as: baby goods, couches, old towels. HINT: Usually vet clinics or animal shelters will take gently used towels and even newspapers.
