Think Your Home Is Too Messy To Clear Out? Think Again!
We all have a messy home, in some form or another. We have piles of clutter here and there, and we like to straighten them out day by day, but come bed time, they’ll be a complete mess all over again! We try to make changes where we can, such as the room atmosphere or finding new ways to arrange the attic for more boxes, but there always comes a time when we simply run out of room.
And yet, if you’re someone who wants to have a clear out, but you don’t think it’s quite such a practical move at the moment, think again. There’s plenty of methods you can employ to tidy up a home that’s one mess after another, and there’s always ways to get rid of the clutter at the back of your cupboards, so you can use them as a storage solution once again!
Make a Schedule to Follow
First of all, make a plan. If you’ve going to be tackling the mess in your home from top to bottom, you can’t rush in without a bit of foresight. You need to sit down beforehand and work out how long it’s going to take, and what would be the easiest to start with. All in all, you need to make yourself a clear out schedule, to keep your dreams of clean living a practical reality.
Start with the top floor, and then work your way down – this way you won’t dirty the areas you’ve already cleared out and wiped down. Usually the attic is best to start with, to make sure you’ve got plenty of room to store the clutter you want to keep, and then tackle the master bedroom before you hit the bathroom.
When you get downstairs again, make sure you start in the kitchen! The living room can always come last, seeing as you’ll still require use of it during the day, and you’ll need all of your furniture still in place.
Rope in Some Help
If you’ve got a big house, and an even bigger amount of mess, don’t venture in alone. Get your friends and family to help out – give them a copy of the schedule, run them through some general rules (so you don’t waste your time supervising!), and then everyone can get on with it.
Get Yourself a Bigger Bin!
And finally, if you’ve got just too many black bags on your hands than you’re capable of moving and trashing yourself, invest in a bigger bin! And no, that doesn’t just mean you should buy a 45L bin to replace your 30L one…
Instead, look into something like a skip bin hire. These companies will provide the skip as and when you need it, and when it’s filled to the brim with all of your waste, they’ll take it all away again. It’s quite useful when it comes to clearing out the modern home!
Don’t despair; you can clear out any home if you remember tips like these.
