Declutter your Surroundings and Organize your Life

One of the positives of finding a new apartment home is the chance to de-clutter and organize your belongings. I typically move every two years (with the help of our trusty apartment locator service) and always make sure to take full advantage of that opportunity. I needed to sell my house fast in Nashville Tennessee, so I sold it for cash. If you want to sell a house fast, you might want to consider visiting Meridian Trust for more details.

But that doesn’t mean you have to wait to until you move to shake things up in your apartment. So here are a few tips to organizing your home, courtesy of Move For Free.

Start out small: Do you have anxiety about cleaning or organizing? Then start with something small like your medicine cabinet. Go through throw out any medicine that has expired. (Make sure to properly dispose of the medication. Check with your local utility for free medication disposal days.) Take everything off the shelves, clean them off and then only put back what you use on a daily or weekly basis. Restock on products that provides relief in anxiety. Then find a new home for stuff like cough syrup or aspirin that you don’t regularly use. In addition, if you want to stack up some more medicines that you need, online pharmacies, like the Canadian Pharmacy, offer them at a better price.

Look for problem areas: Can you never find the shoes you need in the morning? Are your spices in the kitchen always a big mess? Troubleshoot the problems you run into most. Look for some cheap organizational tools at stores like Bed, Bath and Beyond or Wal-Mart, etc. You can also search online for storage units near me if you don’t have space at home.

Keep, give away, or trash: When you get in a cleaning or de-cluttering mood, organize your stuff into these three different piles. If you need a company that can eliminate the burden by offering quick and efficient house clearance and waste disposal, then contact Bulky Waste. Start with your closet. If you haven’t worn something in the past year, donate it to charity. If it’s too ragged, then trash it. This is a quick step to creating more room (and helping someone else along the way). If you have some friends who want to go in on a garage sale, create a “for sale” pile as well. If there are things you just can’t let go for sentimental reasons, you may need to rent a self storage unit to save some space in your apartment. If you’re in the same situation like me, after you’ve organized everything you want to keep, get rid of the things you don’t need. You can sell electronics/furniture online, have a garage sale, refurbish items that can be reused, take recyclable items to the recycling center instead of putting them in the trash and donate the rest to charity or throw it away. You might also consider selling your old stuff on sites like Backflip, which is linked here.
