As the holidays approach, we start to think about decorating our homes every year. We get out the decoration boxes and transform our living spaces into a festive wonderland. But before you start breaking out the ghosts & goblins, there’s one important step you need to take: de-cluttering and removing all that old junk!
The holidays are a time for family, friends, and memories. But they can also be a time of stress and anxiety. One of the main sources of holiday stress is trying to make your home look perfect for guests. Finding a place for all of your holiday decorations can be challenging if your home is cluttered. And if you’re entertaining guests, you want them to feel comfortable in your home—not like they’re wading through a sea of your stuff.
That’s why it’s so important to de-clutter before you start decorating for the holidays. Getting rid of clutter will make finding a place for your holiday decorations easier and make your home look and feel more inviting for guests. But are you still trying to figure out where to start? Here are some tips to get started before calling Junk Removed Now, Junk removal in Colorado Springs, to dispose of unwanted items.
Start with the entryway: Your entryway is the first thing guests see when they come to your home. Make sure to go through the coats and shoes, pulling out any items that no longer fit or are going unused.
Family Room / Entertainment Room: If you need more time, focus on de-cluttering the areas of your home that get the most traffic. The family room is a great place to start! Often the family room has unread/unused magazines, books, or even toys the kids or grandchildren no longer use. You may have a big piece of furniture that goes unused over the years but remains because you don’t know where else to put it. The items no longer serving you a purpose should be set aside in a pile. Setting items aside gives you a foundation for your progress and a visual representation of the extra space you’ve created for yourself. If the item is too heavy or awkward to move, don’t worry. You can leave it in place, and we’ll remove it when we pick up the rest of the items.
Garage: More times than not, the garage becomes a “catch-all” for unwanted or unused items merely based on the thought of “I’ll tend to this later.” What better time than now to get rid of them once and for all? All those items you’ve been “meaning to take” to goodwill or the dump, it’ll be gone! Clearing the garage gives you the space to break out the decorations and set aside any old, broken, or unwanted decorations. Gaining momentum from the garage will help motivate you to the yard. Broken or damaged furniture and toys can also be set aside for haul away. Do you have bigger items taking up space and no longer working for you? We’ll dismantle it and haul it off!
One final step: This is the easiest step so far and only requires a simple phone call to book your appointment for junk removal in Colorado Springs. We take care of the rest by taking it all away. All you have to do is point. The best part, we donate, recycle and upcycle where possible to avoid overfilling the landfills. Networking with several local organizations, artists & DIY’ers has led to many beautiful creations and a stronger community!
De-cluttering before decorating for the holidays may seem like an extra step, but it’s worth it. Not only will it make decorating more accessible, but it will also make your home more inviting for guests. Getting a jump start before Thanksgiving only makes you better prepared for the upcoming Christmas and New Year! So before you start putting up your scarecrows and pumpkins, take some time to de-clutter your space!
