If you’re anything like me, then you probably keep so much stuff that you will probably need in the future. And perhaps like me, you’ve also built up so much clutter that it’s almost impossible to know where to start cleaning up. With this being said, just by doing a quick google search into something like sunshine coast storage, you may be able to find a solution to getting rid of the clutter in your home. So what else can we do to get rid of (or at least lessen) unnecessary items?
Let me suggest 3 things that can help get rid of clutter and clean up your space.
1. Get rid of clutter at home by organizing all that stuff!
This for me is the first step and is the hardest thing to do, but it can be done, especially with the help of a Sydney storage facility if you have too many items to organise. If you have the time to start small, just group all similar items together — magazines, books, CDs and DVDs, coupons, receipts, cards, clippings, etc. Then identify the ones that you know you will need and the ones you think you might need. This might take a long time to finish depending on how much stuff you have and it may get overwhelming. Stepping outside for a few minutes may help.
2. Get rid of clutter at home by selling!
They say one person’s trash can be someone else’s treasure. If you have old DVDs (or multiple DVDs — I didn’t notice until I took this photo that I have 2 sets of Finding Nemo DVDs!), video games, books or other items you know someone else might like, you can hold a garage sale and earn some money. Not the garage sale type of person? No worries! You can easily sell these items online.
3. Get rid of clutter at home by throwing it away!
Now if that item isn’t something you know you can actually use in the next few weeks AND cannot be sold, then I suggest you just throw it away. If there’s a skip’s worth of clutter to get rid of, consider using something like rubbish removal services at Northcote to do all the hard work for you. Of course we can always believe (or convince ourselves) that we CAN actually use those items but maybe it’s time to really get practical and just throw what needs to be thrown.
