Help! How do I get rid of unwanted junk? We don’t like to call it junk; we call it clutter. Most of the items our clients have are still good; they just aren’t serving them anymore and are cluttering their space. Before you call CLUTTER B GONE and we haul away all your clutter, here is the process for getting rid of your clutter.


Prioritization: Focus on decluttering the areas or items that have the most significant impact on your life and well-being. Start with what matters most.


One-in, One-out Rule: For every new item you bring into your space, consider getting rid of one similar item. This helps prevents new clutter from accumulating.


Declutter Regularly: Making decluttering a routine, not a one-time event. Regularly assess your belongings and remove items that no longer serve a purpose.


Sorting System: Use a sorting system with categories like Keep, Donate/Sell, and Discard. This simplifies the decision-making process.


Emotional Attachment: Recognize that emotional attachment to items can cloud your judgement. Ask yourself if an item truly adds value to your life.


Minimalism: Embrace the concept of minimalism, which promotes owning only what you need and cherish. Less can often lead to a happier clutter-free life.


Storeage Solutions: Invest in storage solutions like bins, shelves, and organizers to maintain an organized space.


Digital Clutter: Extend decluttering to your digital life by organizing files, deleting unnecessary emails, and simplifying your digital workspace.


Donate or Sell: Consider donating usable items to those in need or selling them to recoup some value.
