You may find yourself asking “how did my house get this messy?” many times throughout the year. Unfortunately, as much as you’d not like to hear this, YOU are how your house got this messy. Perhaps you updated your wardrobe, bought a new television set, a new vacuum, or anything for the matter. Now your home has large amounts of stuff and you’re cleaning out your home for the second time this summer. You have to decide on what to keep, what to get rid of, and then just decide to stuff everything in your closet or garage. In order to avoid these dreadful cleaning tasks, perhaps you need to stop bringing in the junk. First, get that second summer cleaning started. Sell your old cell phones, donate your old hair dryers, blenders, and other appliances, and throw away any garbage. You can pretty much donate anything that is still useful or you can sell it if possible. Most donations can be written off on your tax form too, or at least up to 50%. If you must buy something new, donate or throw away something old. Doing this prevents the accumulation of junk or piles of unworn and unused items. Getting rid of low quality clothes, shoes, furniture, and other household items is a way to create more space in your home. Keep good quality items that you are certain to us, and only invest in high quality products. This not only reduces the amounts of build up junk, but you’ll soon realize that those cheaper tank tops go out of style every year anyways. Stopping yourself from making those purchases helps save money in the long run, even if it is only $10. Buy what you need and not in bulk.

 

Buying in bulk seems cost effective, but often most of it expires or goes unused. Some frozen vegetables and an extra bag of detergent may not be too bad, but opt for food shopping weekly instead. You’ll end up buying food that is better for you and saving more money that way. Make lists for what you need to buy and stick to it- whether the list is for clothes, appliances, or food, don’t stray far from the list. Buy only what you need. Return plastic bags to the store it came from, return hangers to the dry cleaners, and say no thanks to freebies that seem tempting but really aren’t necessary. Switch to paperless mail and direct deposit options to reduce the income of paper to your home. Reducing the income of junk mail is effective, too. These tips are simple but helpful options to keeping junk out of your home. Following these tips will prevent the need to do serious house cleanings multiple times throughout each season, and also keeps your house spacious, clean, and neat. Hopefully these tips have helped you today!

Downsizing Made Easy

Nowadays, people have more interest in smaller homes over large. Smaller homes often mean having the ability to live a more adventurous lifestyle, with more freedom and more money. Smaller homes also mean less space to utilize.

Often we downsize houses or just buy a lot of new things and fill up our already small spaces. When downsizing or needing to make space in a smaller home, following specific tips helps make this process quick, efficient, and easy. First, keep essentials only. This means getting rid of useless items such as the bean bag chair you haven’t sat on in years, the wardrobe closet filled with ragged sweatshirts and t-shirts, the computer desk you haven’t used since you bought your laptop, and that old television. If you haven’t used something in a year, you probably won’t ever use it again. Sell your items on any App that makes selling easy or donate them. If items are quite damaged, just throw it out. Ask yourself if you’ll really use these items, or if you’d buy it today if you didn’t have it already. That may help you decide what is and isn’t essential. Next, get rid of papers. Use electronic sources for managing bills and expenses, or keep one notebook for it. Throw away expired coupons, magazines, college essays, menus, brochures, and all of those paper materials you thought you’d want for one day. In reality, those papers are just taking up space. Most menus and brochures can be viewed online, and so can your college essays. Important documents can either be digitally replaced or stored in a filing cabinet. If you choose the latter, be sure to label tabs so that everything is properly organized for easy access. Finally, if you see something you’d like to buy sleep on it. It’s the most cost effective way of not spending money on something that is really just eye candy. You may think you need that new jacket, purse, or wallet. If you sleep on it, you may not want to go back the next day. You’ll realize your jacket is still in great condition and so is your wallet. Make lists whenever you do shop for things you need rather than want. These simple but effective tips help create space in your home and abundance in your wallet! It helps organize and feel more comfortable in your home. For labor-saving garbage and junk disposal, let the experts at Cleanout Express help!

Garage Decluttering Tips

Our garages are the perfect place for storing things we don’t need in the moment, or in this lifetime. It is the perfect place for old furniture, bikes, shoes, tools, cleaning supplies, and all other types of appliances and household items. While I am sure you don’t want to throw away everything cluttering your garage, some helpful tips for organization can help determine what can be saved and what can be disposed of. As you go through your belongings, throw away what you haven’t used in over a year. Make a pile for recycling and a pile for garbage. Install metal racks and hooks in your garage to utilize the ceiling for items such as bicycles, skateboards, kayaks jet skis, ladders, and other items of the like. Heavy duty shelves and overhead storage units are also helpful for storing plastic bins,, cleaning supplies, paint buckets, wires and extension cords, and shoes. Pegboards hold tool supplies and other equipment. Be sure that anything installed in your garage is done professionally. Or, if you prefer to do it on your done be sure everything is effectively and safely secure. These organizing tips can help you separate items and store them protectively to prevent injuries to people and damaged items. Once you are organized, you can get to cleaning out all garbage. If that task sounds too tedious and boring, let the experts at Cleanout Express take it from there. This also prevents having to rent an expensive dumpster or waste money at a monthly storage space. Our staff will come remove all garbage and dispose or recycle all items. We can even sweep up any residual debris and dust. Hopefully these tips help you organize and clean your garage!

Moving Made Easier

Moving to a new location may mean new and exciting beginnings, but the adventure of getting there is far from fun. Packing up possessions for your new home can be time consuming and exhausting, so having all the necessary helpful tips is beneficial to a swift and easy move. Utilize these tips to your advantage prior to your move so that you can quickly settle into your new home and get back to living!

Clothing Cleanup: Anything that you haven’t worn in two or more years should be donated, along with mismatched socks, unworn shoes, hats, accessories and whatever else. Anything torn or slightly damaged should be thrown out (save some for rag-cleaning the house). Furniture and other household belongings can also follow this rule: donate whats unused and throw out what’s damaged. This ensures less junk coming into your home whether your upgrading or downgrading in size. If your unsure about an item, get rid of it!

Clean rugs, sheets, blankets, and curtains: Items that are coming with you to your new home should be brought to your local cleaners to be deep cleaned, dried, folded, and packed. This not only will allow a easy shipping from old home to the new, but also ensures that your new home can sparkle with freshly cleaned blankets, curtains, rugs, and whatever else!

Cotton and Plastic: I repeat: cotton and plastic! Cotton can be used to protect furniture, glassware, medicines, and other fragile items. Plastic can be helpful to prevent liquid items (like soaps, makeup, and hair products) from leaking. Wrapping your items with plastic or cotton promises a clean move and avoids spills, leaks, and damaged items.

Label EVERYTHING: Cords, glassware, electronics, clothing, cleaning products, and everything else should be blatantly labeled so that you know what goes where. This also helps prevent items from being damaged because you’ll know what to treat cautiously. Wires should be carefully wrapped up and can also be wrapped in plastic.

Space Bags: Space bags or other vacuum sealed bags really do help increase space which is essential for moving. You don’t want to rent multiple moving trucks or have trouble getting items in and out. Vacuum sealed bags provide a simple solution to that.

CLEAN! Saving damaged clothes is helpful for this, especially t-shirts and soft-material shorts. Newspaper is also an old trick. Before bringing all your items into the new home, use the ragged clothes to clean windows, floors, counter tops (paper towels might be better for these areas), and all other surfaces. Then just throw out the rags. Some people prefer to stash their used rags for another time, because ragged clothes can be more effective than paper towels and newspapers. It is also an environmentally friendly cleaning solution.

If you need more help cleaning your home, hiring our experts ensures effective clean up. Cleanout Express offers moving solutions for your convenience. Any junky items, old mattresses, or trash will be taken to our trucks by our staff members and disposed of (environmentally friendly, too!). We can also sweep up the empty home for the convenience of the next residents.

The first step to getting rid of your clutter is to recognize the different types of clutter you have accumulated over the years. There are 3 main types of clutter and once we identify them, we can talk about sorting, donating and moving your clutter.
Look around your living room. Do you have a book on the coffee table that you’ve never opened or running shoes that you have never worn? We often hold onto these items that we never use on the off chance that we will need it some day. It’s not a bad thing but now we have stuff that we do not need that takes up space that could be used otherwise. The what if” of clutter is the first type of clutter that we need to sort through by asking ourselves will I ever use this or is this just a passing trend?”
Free promotional items can be attributed to the next category of clutter: bargain clutter. Maybe you were walking through the mall and some overly excited salesperson convinced you to try a sample of a new lotion. Sure the sample smells great but you can’t see yourself using it without being prompted. As you walk away, they decide to sweeten the deal by offering you a free travel size sample or bag with a purchase. By adding the word free” to the deal, you are more inclined to make the purchase. Flash forward a year later and you have the same lotion and free tote that you have never used. I think it is safe to say that these items won’t be used anytime soon and can either be donated or recycled.
The final type of clutter is sentimental clutter from your childhood or a specific person. This type of clutter is often the hardest to get rid of since you have built an emotional attachment to it over the years. Maybe it reminds you of a loved one who has passed on or something that no longer exists. Whatever the reason, this clutter can be sorted by asking yourself a few questions.
    1. Will I ever use this again? 
    2. Can I use this item to make something else? 
    3. Can you not bear to part with this item if your life depended on it? 
    4. Would you save it if you could only keep 5 items? 
If the answer to any of these questions is no, it can probably be donated or recycled.
