Getting Organized Isn't A Hassle With A Plan For Decluttering

Posted by Junk King on Aug 17, 2017 2:45:00 PM

Summer is coming to an end, school is starting, and the onset of fall is a great time to declutter and get organized while the weather is good and the days are still long.

We live in a culture that celebrates shopping and buying, and getting "stuff" is almost a hobby with many people. Consequently, is it any wonder why junk accumulation is a chronic problem for many Americans? It's as if there is a law of nature at work: "Stay in one place long enough and junk will multiply accordingly."

One of the great things about living in the U.S. is that we have an abundance of material goods. The downside to that is the all-too-common clutter and disorganization it creates.

Tips For Junk Removal And Garage Storage Ideas

Posted by Junk King on Jun 20, 2017 12:05:00 PM

For most homes, the garage is often a built-in storage unit. The problem is that the items that we store often end up just becoming junk that we need to get rid of.

The truth is that for many of us, the family garage is just a place to pile up our stuff. In fact, it's been estimated that less than 20 percent of homeowners and renters in the United States use their garages to park their cars in. This is not because we prefer to keep our cars parked out in the elements during the day and overnight. It's because most of us have no room in our garages for a car, let alone two!

Junk Removal Can Clear Your Mind

Posted by Junk King on Feb 28, 2012 11:19:08 AM
Make a list. That’s the recommended first act in a course of action designed to change your life for the better. Every year around New Years, most of us make a mental or written list of some kind outlining what we want to do differently in the upcoming year. 2012 is no different, though some believe it might be the last year we’re able to do any of this stuff. Didn’t you know that aliens abducted Elvis and are bringing him back? Or is it that whole Mayan calendar thing? Either way, it’s still the beginning of the year and you need to put junk removal at the top of your to-do list.
Why junk removal? First, let’s define what we mean by the term. Junk Removal is getting rid of those items that you aren't using anymore, and are just taking up room in your house. You can start off by taking stock of all the junk in the basement, attic and garage - those are the places that people often accumulate the most junk. That’s actually a positive chore at the beginning of the year. Pack up all those old toys, get rid of the exercise equipment that’s gathering dust, and throw out those clothes that will never fit you again. There’s no use lying to yourself. The kids won’t ever wear them.
Once you’ve gotten rid of all that material clutter and Junk King has driven away after the job, think about how the lack of junk in your home has made a difference in your life. You'll probably feel less stressed, more creative, more open. Take a deep breath and embrace the change. That’s what junk removal is all about - it’s about change for the better.
The same concept of junk removal can apply to your life in 2012. How are you going to live your life better this year? If you really think the end of the world is coming , how do you want to spend your last year? How can you work on clearing all the clutter in your head and concentrating on what's important in your life?
Junk removal of character and emotional baggage is critical if you’re going to be happier and more productive this year than you were last. A wise man once said, “Live every day as if it’s your last and you’ll find you become a better person.” It doesn’t work for everyone, but it might work for you. Get rid of your old junk and make a fresh start, literally and figuratively. Clean out the basement, garage and attic so you aren't holding onto the past and so that you're ready to move forward.

5 Spring Cleaning Projects

Posted by Junk King on May 3, 2011 2:22:59 PM
Winter is long over and you no longer have an excuse for not doing all of those odd jobs you’ve been procrastinating about all winter long. If you live in the Northern part of the country, you had plenty of snow to deal with, but it’s been gone for a few months now. There’s a good chance that someone in your house may have already requested that you do one or more of the five tasks we have listed here, but we thought we’d mention them anyway. Spring has sprung (some time ago) and it's time to get these things done!
Eliminate Clutter: This is one of those tasks that can be compared to a New Year’s resolution. How many times have you told yourself that you were going to clean out all that clutter and finally get it out of sight and mind. Somehow, this one always gets put off until later and the pile just gets larger and larger. Don’t let it happen again this year. Instead of making this your last spring cleaning project, make it your first.
Wash Windows: Another candidate for the “later” list, window washing is everyone’s least favorite task, but the results are always awe inspiring. Spend a day washing all the glass portals that look out from your home and you’ll find that your house and the world around it are actually much brighter places than you imagined.
Clear Gutters: If you didn’t do this in the fall you may have had some leakage from the roof or in the basement. If the gutters are clogged and drainage water can’t get down the drain spout, it will spill over the sides of the gutter and pool at the base of your home. That ground isn’t graded to drain like the area around the drain spout, so you end up with pools in the basement. Avoid that by making your gutters part of your spring cleaning efforts.
Detail the Car: Now that you’ve done some of the heavy duty household chores, take some time and detail the car. Inside and out, it’s filthy. Winter has a way of doing some real damage to an automobile, so be nice to your ride and give it a wash and vacuuming. Maybe you’ll find some change in the seats or that favorite CD you thought you lost. Small bonuses like that make auto detailing worthwhile.
Garage/Basement/Attic Yard Sale: If you’re still stuck on the clutter suggestion, try thinking of it in terms of making a profit. Clean out your garage, basement, or attic and put everything on the front lawn for a yard sale. They say one man’s garbage is another man’s prize possession. Just because you think it’s worthless doesn’t mean someone else might not like it. Sell as much as you can, make a few dollars, and then call the junk removal company to get rid of the rest.
And for those bigger items around the house that you would rather someone else haul off - simply call Junk King at 1-888-888-JUNK!

Spring Cleaning Tips

Posted by Junk King on Apr 7, 2011 4:09:08 PM
Spring cleaning is a time during the year when people go through their homes and do a thorough clean from top to bottom. In the past, people did not get out of their homes as much during the winter and they accumulated a variety of trash and junk items. The practice originated because cleaning was one of the top priorities when winter was over. Today this process has stuck and many people go about the process of cleaning their homes thoroughly each spring.
In many cases, doing a truly complete spring cleaning job can be a daunting task. The best way to approach this is by creating a list of areas that need to be cleaned and the tasks that need to be completed in each area. Most people start by performing the basics - picking up, washing dishes, some light dusting. It is hard to focus on out-of-the-way areas that need cleaning when the rest of the home is dirty or cluttered. Making sure that dishes are clean and the house is free of debris will make the tasks that come later much easier to perform. Once clutter is removed, the next step is to vacuum and mop.
After your home is clean, you will want to focus on areas of the home that don't often receive regular attention throughout the year. Closets are the best place to start. People have an out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality and tend to place a lot of useless junk in their closets. Go through and take a look at all the items placed inside and evaluate their usefulness. Get rid of any useless junk and clothes that are worn out, no longer fit properly, or have gone out of style.
The next place you will want to go is the kitchen. Go through all the cabinets and see what junk items can be removed. Often we tend to put away chipped and damaged dishes thinking that we may have a use for them eventually, but it is better to get rid of them now. These items are easily replaced should the need for extras arise. Be sure to check the expiration date on all food and discard if it is out of date.
Finally, if you have a garage or store room, you will want to clean there. These are areas that often require professional junk removal services. Any unusable items like broken tools or lawn equipment should be either fixed or discarded. Many people have broken appliances in these places as well. Those items may require special disposal to avoid the release of dangerous chemicals.
Once you have finished your spring cleaning, you will find that you have much more space available. A good way to get rid of all the unwanted junk is to have a yard sale. As the old saying goes, one man's trash is another's treasure.
Be sure to contact Junk King at 1-888-888-JUNK if there are any items that you are unable to discard for yourself. Before you know it, you'll be spending your spring relaxing in a clutter free home!

Tips For Cleaning Out Your Walk-In Closet

Posted by Junk King on Feb 10, 2011 10:20:02 AM

The phrase 'cleaning out your closet' has come to mean a number of things, including letting go of burdensome memories or social relationships. The original meaning, however, literally means getting rid of all that junk that's built up in your closet space. We don't often realize it, but we spend quite a bit of time inside our home's closets, especially if you have a walk-in closet. It could be getting ready for work, finding the perfect outfit for going out, or trying on new clothes; every day we spend time inside that closet.
