With the holidays behind us and the weather turning colder as winter settles in, probably the last thing you are considering is junk removal.
But, as you look around your home at the "post-holiday" rubbish, junk, and other debris, you can see that junk removal has no seasons and that anytime can be a necessary time to get rid of all those unwanted or unneeded items and accumulated junk.
The Party's Over and The Fun Has Begun!
For some people, right after New Year's and the early winter is their time to go through the house, the garage, and maybe the attic or basement, and start clearing out everything that has piled up during the previous year.
For others, the days immediately after the holidays is also a time to start off afresh with the New Year. And a big part of that involves decluttering and a little "downsizing" - which often includes some junk removal.
Whatever the reason or the motivation, ultimately, the junk has to be gotten rid of.
There is something almost cathartic and definitely therapeutic about "cleaning up" and getting a new start. Whether that's at work, at home, or simply in your personal life, clearing the clutter, tossing out the junk, and getting a fresh start can be invigorating and revitalizing.
Take your job, for example. One article points out the mental health benefits of being organized,
It will create a positive mood, reduce some stress, and make you feel relaxed when you come home after a whole day of work. It helps you to feel more grounded in your own space. Organizing allows you to feel more in control—whether it's your work environment, personal environment, or even the documents on your laptop.
And this is probably more so at home. As another source has noted, being organized at home has numerous benefits for our mental wellbeing,
A sense of calm
We live in a chaotic world. If you come home to a chaotic space, you may not feel a sense of true calm and relaxation. Instead, think of your home as a retreat from the outside world.
Less stress and frustration
When you’re in a cluttered space, you may experience a consistent low-level stress because of your environment. Organizing your space can help to reduce this stress.
Having less clutter in your home can help to de-clutter your mind. This allows you to reduce distractions and increase your focus on the activities that are important to you.
Being able to focus more in your space can naturally help you get more things done. With that comes a renewed sense of accomplishment at the end of each day.
Organizing often requires some cleaning up and decluttering, however. And this usually means that there will be "stuff" that has to be gotten rid of or disposed.
Cleaning Out and Straightening Up: Getting Organized
One of the huge benefits of junk removal is the opportunity for clearing out clutter and being to reorganize one's living space. For others it may be their workspace, but the principle is the same: clean out the clutter, straighten up what's left, and get everything organized. And this often involves "downsizing" to a certain degree.
Downsizing your lifestyle doesn't have to involve moving into a smaller home, selling your cars, and living like a hermit! But reducing the amount of belongings and clearing out all the clutter that is made up of knick-knacks, old stuff you just never get around to using, and anything that has no real use or function is a big step to downsizing your space.
Sometimes, however, this is far easier said than done!
Maybe not so much the cleaning and the organizing, but getting rid of things can be a challenge. Part of the problem is mental, the other part is emotional. But once you make up your mind to be somewhat ruthless in getting rid of unneeded items, the process becomes smoother.
And, once the clutter is gone, one of the main keys to getting - and staying - organized is to have good storage. This is far more than simply "A place for everything, and everything in its place."
It means having a plan and proper storage equipment and methods.
All of this may sound a bit complicated, we know, but it's really not that hard. However, we do understand that not everyone has a knack for this, which is why we put together this brief guide:
With this approach you can be uncluttered and organized in no time!
And, if you stick with it, you may find that you won't need junk removal services nearly as often. We do hope you find some other good reasons to call us, of course, but we understand.
