How to Declutter Your Home
Have you found yourself with more items than you would care to have? Is your home filled to the brim and you need more space? It may be time to unclutter your home.
When you are uncluttering your home, it helps take away from the everyday chaos. It really helps when you don’t come home into clutter and have a clean, organized home.
Anything that you want to keep but haven’t used in the past year, put it into storage or into your attic. Any extra clothes that you are not going to wear till next season, your collection of teapots, any family photos that you don’t want out, etc. Box it up and put it into storage.
If there are items that you don’t want to keep but are still nice, consign or sell it. Facebook has become a HUGE market place for “For Sale By Owner Items” and most consignment stores will happily help you sell your items and split the cost with you.
If you cannot sell and don’t want it, donate it. There are so many charities that rely on donated goods to generate an income and raise money for the people that they aim to help. And why not help another in need. Excellent charities to reach out to: Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill Industries, The Kidney Foundation, or other local thrift stores. Several have a truck and will come and pick up the items for donation form your home.
If you have items that do not fit into any of these categories: Dispose of it correctly. For example: Old mail with any personal information needs to be shredded. Fluorescent lights need to be recycled at a place that accepts them (Home Depot, Lowes). Lastly, please recycle any recyclable items.
If you want to make a little piece of The Island your own, you need more than just a road map and a REALTOR. You need a partner who can make things happen.
