Luck of the Irish

                It doesn’t take finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow to rent a bin with us. If you are getting ready for a big move, doing some spring cleaning, doing yard cleanup or just decluttering your home, we have bins various sizes and prices to fit your needs and budget. All our bins are residential friendly and easy to use with double doors that open for easy loading.

                Most of us will feel overwhelmed with the amount of clutter that accumulates in our homes. Decluttering doesn’t have to be an overwhelming job, just keep these simple tips in mind to make the process easier.

Toss anything that isn’t necessary: This includes magazines, newspapers, junk mail, old makeup or accessories, dishes or small appliances that sit gathering dust and any damaged furniture that has become an eyesore.

Dust from top to bottom: Corners of the walls and baseboards collect a lot of dust and cobwebs, using a telescoping microfiber duster can make it quick and easy to clean those tough to reach places. Blinds, drapes and lampshades can often sit forgotten. You can put drapes and pillow in the dryer for 15 mins on fluff to breath new life into them. Using a blind duster found at any grocery store can make cleaning blinds super easy. Lint rollers can help make cleaning up lampshades and sofas fast and simple. Ceiling fans, hood vents and the top of any surface in the kitchen can collect a layer of grease and dirt that is hard to clean. Using a dryer sheet to wipe away the layer of grime is a wonderful way to get that stubborn buildup clean.

Pantry cleanup: Spice racks and food pantries can collect a lot of forgotten items. Some of us have spices that have been stored away for several years (I know I did) but even spices have an expiration date. Go through your spices and food pantry checking each date carefully. If it’s a food item, you or family don’t see yourself eating and don’t remember why you bought it make a pile of food for the food bank (just make sure nothing is expired).

Give us call at Bin There Dump That Salt Lake for any large projects and we will be more than happy find the right size bin to fit your needs.

Spring Cleaning

Spring is right around the corner, now is the time to think about cleaning up and that means decluttering. We all know that it is very easy to build up many items in the home that do nothing but collect dust. When the time comes to clear out those items it is helpful to have a plan. Ask yourself the following questions when deciding what to get rid of.
Can it still be used?
Often, we set something aside that is broken so it can be repaired later. As time passes we forget or simply don’t have the time to get to the repair. Chances are the parts needed for the repair are no longer available. Regardless, if you have gone a year without using it then it won’t likely be missed if thrown away.
Why did you get it?
During cleanup you may come across something that you can’t even remember why you got something or what it even does. If you’ve had it stored away for a year or more and don’t know what you’d do with then it’s time to toss it out.
Is it in decent shape?
Reselling items that are in decent shape can be a wonderful way to make extra cash and reduce waste. Its important to make sure the items you might want to resell are in good condition and don’t have any broken or missing pieces. Make sure to dispose of all items properly to ensure the safety of your family and others.
Do you have more than one?
It’s not uncommon to go the store and stock up on items only to go home and realize you already have that item. This can also happen with household items. Make a list of items you like to keep stockpiled, this will help keep you organized but save from over cluttering with extras and save money. If you have too many of something clear out the excess.
Is your clutter costing you money?
If you have a storage unit it may be a good idea to start your clean out there. Take note of what’s in your storage unit and go through the questions above. Most importantly ask yourself if the rental fee for storing these items is cost effective. Is the value of the item worth the cost of the rental?

Now you are ready to think about how you will be hauling away your items. Bin There Dump That Salt Lake has bins of different sizes to help with any size job. Smaller bins are perfect for getting rid of the odds and ends we collect. The larger size bins will be perfect for furniture, appliances and the bulkier items. Please give us a call so we can help find the right size bin for your project.
