It’s almost May and COVID-19 still has you stuck indoors. This strange period in our lives is the perfect time to tackle some serious cleaning projects… like all those overflowing closets in your house!
Closet purging and decluttering can be a lifelong battle. Don’t worry! Junk360 is here to help.
Closet Cleaning: Getting Started
If you haven’t done a closet cleanout in a while, it’s time to channel your inner Marie Kondo. This means:
- Taking every single item out of your closet
- Give whole space a good wiping down
- Only put back the pieces you truly love
Emptying your closet completely may seem overwhelming. However, it makes it easier to look over every item versus just skimming what you can see. Additionally, it allows you to purge all the junk!
Were you shoving old suitcases, broken items, or storage boxes behind your clothes? Closets are excellent for storing clutter that you don’t want out in the open. Take every item out of these places, give them a deep clean, and sort through what you want to donate, trash, or keep.
Now’s the time to get rid of every item you have no use for!
What to Do With All Your Closet Junk
You’ve got a pile of all your unwanted closet findings. Now what?
Start by sorting your items into the following piles:
- Donate: Gently used clothes, toys, and books can be reused by other families. Get yourself a big box and fill it with your reusable clothes and closet items that don’t bring you any joy. This process can get tough, but, if things don’t serve a purpose, it’s time to pass it on to someone who can get use out of it. Giving is a heartfelt act that is needed now, more than ever.
- Junk: At the end of the day, throw out everything in your junk pile. Don’t give yourself a chance to rethink it. It’s worthwhile to hire a professional junk removal service for larger piles.
