The start of a new year is a great time to revamp all areas of your life. You’ve probably begun working on new years resolutions related to your health or daily routine, but what about resolutions related to your home? Cleaning out your home in 2020 gives you a fresh start not just for the new year, but for the new decade too!
More Room in Your Garage
Your garage should be a multi-functional space that holds your vehicle, outdoor tools, and much more. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for your garage to become a catch-all for the things you aren’t quite sure what to do with. By clearing out some of the junk in your garage, you’ll have more space for things that you actually need, such as parking your car or working on DIY projects! Look through your garage for items that are broken, damaged, unused, and unneeded.
The interior of your home likely needs to be cleaned out even more than the exterior garage space! Our homes fill with clutter that gets put into closets, cupboards, and drawers to be dealt with another time. Now is that time! Begin one room at a time and sort through the items in your home. A good rule of thumb to follow includes two tips:
- If the item no longer brings you joy, you shouldn’t keep it.
- If the item hasn’t been used in over a year, you no longer need it.
Things that you’ve been holding onto for a time “just in case” when you might need it, are things that bring clutter to your home. Be realistic with yourself about what you need and use and clear out the rest! A clutter-free home promotes better mental health and will make keeping the house clean much easier.
It’s Easier Than You Think!
Some people avoid cleaning out their homes because they think it’s an impossibly big project, but cleaning out your home is easier than you think! You should go into the cleaning project with an open mind and plenty of time on your hands in case you need to take breaks in between rooms or spaces. Another great way to make the project go smoothly is to hire a professional junk removal service.
