Are you running out of space for your stuff? If so there are a few simple things you can do to clear up your living area. Further, there are easy steps to make sure you don’t ever bury yourself under your belongings again.
Your clothing can be a particular burden on your space. It’s altogether too easy to accumulate clothes at an unregulated pace. It’s also easy to weed out the stuff you no longer want nor wear and give it to someone who actually needs it.
It goes without saying that you can give these articles of clothing to friends or family members, but don’t forget your community’s social service organizations, such as Goodwill, Salvation Army or your local church or homeless shelter.
Now, you could find yourself with as much as a quarter more space in your closet – and in your life.
Beyond clothes, your household items may be filling up your home. These things don’t necessarily need to go, but they do need to have a place.
The first thing to do is buy or borrow some storage containers. These will provide with space to keep your things while you decide what stays and where to put them. Having a blank template on which to work will make it much easier to make clear-headed decisions.
Absent your major clutter, you may still feel packed into your home like a can of sardines. If this is the case, it’s time to take your cleanup to the next level. It’s time to get rid of furniture.
It is a fairly simple matter to sell off large furniture items, so long as they are in good shape. It is likely your community has a section on craigslist.com. This is an ideal place for listing furniture, which can get it out of your life in almost no time.
