Spring is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to give your home a spring cleanout. Whether you’re looking to declutter your home or your garage, spring cleaning can be an overwhelming task. To make it easier, we have put together five spring cleanout tips to help you tackle your spring cleanout.
Tackle Room by Room
Simplify your spring cleanout by tackling your home room by room. Cleaning one room at a time will help you stay organized and not feel too overwhelmed by the task ahead. Start with the rooms that need the most attention, such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and large bedrooms. You can then move on to smaller rooms and your attic or garage space.
If you are tackling a specific area only, such as your attic or basement, start with one corner of the room, then move to the other side. Don’t rush the process. It is important to be thorough with each room or corner before moving on to the next one so that you don’t miss any junk that needs to be thrown out.
Organize to Clear the Clutter
Once you have chosen a room or spot, start to organize your belongings. Remember your aim to clear the clutter and create more space in your home. To ensure you tackle all of your junk items, sort your belongings into three piles:
- Keep: Essential items that you use regularly or seasonal items
- Donate/sell: Items that are still in good condition that you can make some money from or bless someone else with
- Throw away: Unwanted junk to be tossed in the dumpster
Keep items that you intend to donate/sell in separate boxes and label the boxes so you can find them later. Put away items that you intend to keep. If you don’t have time to organize items that you want to keep, simply place them in a corner for later. Items that need to be thrown out can be placed in a dumpster immediately to make more space and save time.
Get Everyone Involved
A cleanout project doesn’t have to be a one-person job. Ask your family or roommates for help to make the task more manageable. Get your kids involved by assigning tasks to them or letting them clean out their rooms. Ask them to decide which toys they want to keep or donate. Broken toys should be thrown away in a dumpster.
Don’t Forget to Clean the Yard
Remember to declutter your outside space too. Yard waste can attract unwanted pests and rodents and make your garden look unsightly. Get your yard summer-ready by raking up any leaves or debris, trimming your bushes and hedges, and planting some new flowers.
Many people also choose to have garage cleanouts in spring and garage sales to get rid of items from their cleanup projects. If you rent a three yard capacity clutter buster dumpster, you can easily move it around your driveway or other solid surface to make your spring cleaning easier.
Rent a Dumpster
If you have a lot of items to get rid of, consider renting a dumpster. A spring cleanout can be a time-consuming task, but with residential dumpster rental, you can dispose of your unwanted items quickly and efficiently. It’s also a great way to get rid of large items, such as furniture or appliances that may be difficult to dispose of otherwise. Speak to dumpster rental companies about the dumpster sizes they have available.
