When Decluttering Means Junk Removal

Posted by Junk King on Nov 17, 2021 5:00:00 AM



Decluttering, downsizing, and organizing - the long winter months can be a great time for these projects. But it can also result in needing junk removal.

And the long winter months may not be the best time to be taking your own junk off to your nearest waste transfer station or recycling facility. So, what can you do?

There's More to Decluttering Than 'Cleaning Up'

It seems that nature has a way of multiplying stuff in our homes.

No matter how much we try to stay organized and keep the clutter under control, things and new belongings seem to crop up throughout the house, in the garage, or even out in the yard or the storage shed. 

And, if you've been at this for a while, you know by now that the holidays have a sneaky way of adding tremendously to the accumulation of things.

As the late comedian George Carlin commented 40 years ago,

"That's the whole meaning of life, isn't it? Trying to find a place for your stuff. That's all your house is. Your house is just a place for your stuff. If you didn't have so much stuff you wouldn't need a house. You could just walk around all the time. That's all your house is, it's a pile of stuff with a cover on it."

While he was obviously making light of our tendency to accumulate belongings, his point does have some truth to it: our homes hold most of our things. And sometimes the things can get to be too much - figuratively and literally!

When you find that simply re-organizing all your stuff becomes an exercise in futility, and your house still feels cluttered and "junky", it may be time to seriously consider some severe decluttering and even downsizing.

There are benefits to be had with downsizing. As one source noted,

"Focus on the amazing benefits you have waiting for you when you downsize and simplify your life. You'll gain more free time for experiences and time with your people. This means less stress and more opportunities to live your best life."

Being able to park you cars in your garage could be viewed as a lifestyle benefit, for example!

Regardless of your reasons for wanting to declutter and organize your living space (or your work space!) it helps to have some guidance on doing so efficiently and effectively.

If you are thinking about starting your organizing, decluttering, or even downsizing project over the course of the next few months, you'll probably be indoors. And that's great for this type of work, considering the likelihood of harsh, winter weather outdoors.

But if your cleaning and decluttering results in large amounts of debris, trash, and junk you need to get rid of, you probably aren't looking forward to going out to take care of it. 

The good news is that you don't have to!
