Now that 2021 has arrived and 2020 is finally behind us (Yay!), you’re probably facing a host of new challenges and opportunities. As you tackle the year ahead, why not finally take charge of the clutter that’s been overwhelming your life? Removing your junk, and starting the new year off with a clean, decluttered space will reset your state of mind and help you be more productive.

Wondering where to begin? We get that. Assessing your stuff to decide what to keep and what to toss isn’t easy, but we want to help. Once you’ve decided what to part with, Removal Solutions by koik will remove it quickly and professionally.

To get started, take a look at this step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Begin with planning

Why: It makes the process easier

The best place to start your 2021 decluttering adventure is to create a plan. Think about your goal. Are you decluttering to achieve a minimalist lifestyle, or simply trying to create extra space in particular areas of your home? Knowing what you are trying to achieve will help you tackle the project. Before you start — plan!

Step 2: Don’t try to do it all at once — or alone

Why: It’s just too much, and you’ll get discouraged

If you are determined to go the DIY route, it’s a good idea to break your junk removal project into small, easily achievable goals. This will give you a sense of accomplishment as you complete each mini-goal. If you decide to attack your project full throttle, hiring a professional junk removal service is the way to go. They’ll have the manpower and moving equipment needed to empty your space fast!

Step 3: Closets are a great place to start

Why: They’re small and hold a lot of junk

Whether it’s out-of-fashion clothing, a pair of broken-down boots, or those old ski poles, our closets are catch-alls for junk. Start by sorting through your closet and placing items into keep, donate, or junk piles. If you can’t decide if you should keep an item, ask yourself if you’ve used it in the past year. If you haven’t, it’s time to get rid of it!

Step 4: Give Furniture the heave-ho

Why: Big items really add to clutter

We often keep old furniture that’s worn out and tired looking, even though it serves no function. Does this sound like you? If it does, it’s time to address the problem. Old furniture might seem valuable, but you’ll be much happier once you ditch it and open up your space. But here’s the catch — furniture is big, heavy, and awkward to move. Working with a junk removal service will let you get this job done quickly and easily (and without a sore back)!

Step 5: Focus on your garage, basement, and attic

Why: You don’t want to shift clutter from one place to another

The idea is to get the junk out of your life! You don’t want to empty one space by filling another. Once you’ve gotten your main living areas looking pristine, take a look around. Did you declutter your living space by shifting junk to your garage, basement, or attic? Don’t make this mistake. Hire a reputable junk removal service to make sure you get that unwanted junk completely of your life!
