Ah, school is back in session. Sure, it’s bittersweet, but the additional time you have is probably all sweet. During those long summer days, we all wished we had just an hour or two to ourselves to get things done, and now here we are, wondering what we shall do with our time. Now is the perfect time to take matters into your own hands, clean up after the kiddos who are away, and make the great purge. Rent our Dumpster service in Augusta, and then start the following steps.
When The Kids Are Away, They Won’t Play
What happens when you attempt to throw out any of your child’s toys that they have not used in ages, or even at all? They stop you! The best time to lose old things that are long since forgotten, have missing pieces, or that they simply don’t care about is while they are at school. Use the black bag trick and start to compile things they don’t need. Why a black bag, you ask? If you use a see-through one, they will notice instantly when they get home, which defeats the whole purpose.
Make a Donate Pile
If you have things around the house that you know are valuable but you don’t use, then they are of no value to you. Not only is donating to charity a great way to give back to the community; it is a good tax write-off. While you’re deciding what stays and what goes, don’t hold onto items simply because you know what you paid for them. That just clutters up your life and you develop buyer’s remorse every time you glance at the item.
Get Rid of the Elephant in the Middle of the Room with your Appliances
When appliances or big things break down, it almost becomes more expensive to get rid of them than to just let them be and work around them. If you do a great purge, however, you can justify renting a dumpster and filling it with everything that you don’t need, all at once. Imagine all the space you will gain when you can finally say adieu to the washing machine that hasn’t washed in ages.
Sell What You Don’t Need
Some things are valuable to others, and who couldn’t use some extra cash? While making a donate pile, add a sell one. If you sell some of your used items, you can enjoy a dinner out on the weekend, or you might even make enough to pay for the dumpster to get the rest of the trash out of your house. That way, you will break even and have a wonderfully clean home to boot!
