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?
