Time to Clean Your Life Up

It is that time of year when a person thinks about getting rid of all their piles of things that they have accumulated throughout the years. Sometimes it can be hard to get rid of a knickknack or collectible that you have been holding onto but there is no time like the present to reevaluate what things you really need and what things are just collecting dust. Now with spring upon us it seems like the perfect time to begin to throw out those old hand me downs.

Spring Cleaning – Where to Start

A good rule of thumb is if you have not used or worn something in a year it may be time to take it out of the closet and get rid of it. Pick one room in your house as a starting place and then methodically move to the next one. A good idea is to make selective piles of what you want to throw out such as clothes in a clothes pile, toys and knickknacks in another pile and so on. This will help later when you decide where you are going to take all your junk.

Spring Cleaning – Make a Plan

Most towns have a local thrift shop so why not donate some of your old clothes that you don’t wear anymore. Your load will be lighter and you will feel better about yourself because you will be helping someone less fortunate then you out. Remember one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. In the event that you have a lot of technical junk lying around try taking it to a local pawn shop, you will clear your space as well as possibly make a few dollars off of it in the process.

Heavier messes may require a trip to the dump to dispose of all the clutter. While this may be expensive depending on what you have, there is no doubt that you will feel better about yourself and it will make your living space much more presentable.

Spring Cleaning – Try Not to Horde

Hording is considered an illness by many professionals nowadays and extreme cases may need extra help. If you are a hoarder, why not ask a family member or friend to help you get rid of things. They will most likely be more than happy to help you sort through your possessions and decide what should be kept and what is no longer needed. Having a clean place will make you feel great so why not start today and begin your spring cleaning.
