Everyone who has a spare bedroom that isn’t used all that often knows that it can easily fill with clutter. Things you haven’t put up in the attic, things you aren’t sure you’ll keep, or those birthday presents that haven’t found a place in your house yet. All of this can be a huge task, and that might make you nervous because once you start, you might not live in a clutter-free house for the next couple of months. However, there are some simple steps you can take to keep the fuss to a minimum.
#1 Have a System
Everything works better with a plan, and having a system so nothing gets too cluttered can be a great way to give your head some space. You are probably going to want to keep a lot of what you find, sell some of the rest, and give some things away. This means that you are going to need to figure out the least invasive way possible to store things, especially if you put everything in that room to get it out of the way in the first place. Having piles in different rooms is a good way to spread out the clutter, and make sure that nothing else gets lost or placed in the wrong area.
#2 Invest in the Right People to Help You
Investing in helpful service can be the first step to getting rid of all of the clutter in your home. You are bound to want to sell some things or give some things away, but you might be a little busy to do the whole job. Moving companies who can help you with chores, such as bed shipping, can be a great investment. You might also find that due to the clutter build-up, you have generated a pest problem. Looking into pest control units can help you safely remove any unwanted housemates you might have gained in the past few months.
#3 Don’t Let Yourself Get Distracted.
It is so easy to pick up an old photo album and spend hours looking at the photos inside or find your old favorite shirt and go on a nostalgia trip. This can very easily happen when clearing out a room you haven’t been into in ages. However, you need to put those things aside and focus on the job at hand. You will find it so much easier to complete the job well and quickly if you aren’t busy reminiscing on the past. You can always do that later stylishster.
There are a lot of things that are stress-inducing when it comes out to sorting out that ‘dump’ of a spare room that you might have. You might find this to be daunting, as it can be a really big job that you might have been putting off for years. However, by being organized and having a system, looking into helpful services, and keeping your ‘eyes on the prize’, you can clear out your room with no problem. You might even get that initial lump out of the way in one afternoon tishare.
