Why is Getting Rid of Junk Important?


Planning Ahead of a Move is Important for Decluttering

If you’re planning a move, you might want to consider taking the plunge to pare down your belongings. Not only can a large declutter before moving save you time and energy on both ends of your move; it can also help save you money. Why? The more stuff you have, the more it costs to move it.

Is it Healthy to Get Rid of Things?

If you’re looking for an easy way to reduce stress, decluttering your environment may be a good place to start. Getting rid of excess stuff can benefit your mental health by making you feel calmer, happier, and more in control. A tidier space can make for a more relaxed mind.

Refer Agencies for Large Items

Reducing waste will not only protect the environment but will also save on costs or reduce expenses for disposal. In the same way, recycling and/or reusing the waste that is produced benefits the environment by lessening the need to extract resources and lowers the potential for contamination.

Inventory Belongings

If something happens to your items during the move, you will likely need a moving inventory for the moving company and the insurance company. Ellen will help you create an inventory list to keep track of all of your belongings.

Donate your Unwanted Items

By donating your clothes to Goodwill instead of throwing them in the trash, you prevent them from ending up in a landfill, where they can take years to fully break down, releasing harmful gases into the environment in the process.

A Friendly Reminder

By electing to hire a professional organizer to help declutter, you make the moving preparation process much smoother. You won’t waste money having items moved that should be trashed, given away, or sold, and if downsizing, you will avoid a lack of space in your new smaller home.
