I accidentally said this recently, “It’s a hop, skip and a junk . . .” Of course what I meant to say was, “It’s a hop, skip and a jump away” — but “junk” was what came out of my mouth. Then I thought to myself that when it comes to rapidly organizing a house, often hiring a junk removal company is the way to go.
I’ve been in client situations where we’ve cleaned out huge portions of clutter in less than four hours for under $700 and every one of my clients reported that it was a great investment, an incredible time saver and the psychological lift that they needed to get their home back in shape.
I’m not suggesting you throw out things that have value (sentimental or financial), but if your home is full of items that simply need to go to the garbage such as old hoses, overly-loved stuffed animals, scratched up artwork, heavily faded curtains, school papers from days gone by, chipped and cracked plates, appliances that don’t work, construction material that are moldy, old-style televisions, etc…. then it is time to consider the “hassle factor.” This even includes “old brown furniture”, the kind of furniture that donation centers aren’t even accepting any more. Don’t worry that you may be sending items to the landfill, because a reputable junk service recycles, before they discard.
If you decide that this spring it is time to hop, skip and just junk it, make sure you’ve thoroughly checked through your discards for any treasures, such as money and jewelry. Hopefully, you didn’t hide these kinds of things in your “stuff” but many people do!
And if you need a recommendation for a reputable junk company, I can help with that too!
