Clutter Time Blues
Summer is often thought of as relaxation and enjoying fun in the sun. I have to remind myself that it is necessary to stay motivated and work on household clutter removal projects. When the kids are out of school, time is also very limited towards these time consuming junk organizing tasks. Anything that requires detailed planning and large clutter removal usually gets done during the summer months.So, how do I stay motivated with the beach literally just a few miles away? I manage to get by with a daily to do list and it is with me everyday. For each day, I have a list of 3 clutter spots that I need to organize or even have hauled away. The daily planner definitely keeps me focused during the summer on what “clutter areas” need tending and when. For myself, one check on my daily clutter list feels so accomplishing.
Maintain a List
Honestly, a daily clutter list is great, but it can become tedious for areas like the garage. Places where there is a high density of clutter may not be so easily manageable. It is important to keep the simple tasks to yourself. A bigger clutter busting project may require some help from professional junk removal experts. For example, on Day 1, I could pull everything out of the garage and decide what I am going to keep and bring it back in. On Day 2, I can organize what I had brought back in the garage, what I am keeping. The clutter can remain outside for the hauling service to pick up. Remember, you still need to think about yourself and relax when relaxation time is available.
Overall, my smaller projects usually get done on my time off by myself or with the help of my wife. We use assistance for big clutter removal and the guys haul it away and clean up the little left behind
