Oprah’s closet method

One of the most difficult areas for people to downsize is often their closet – and I’m not just talking about the ladies! If you’re having a hard time deciding what’s important to you in your wardrobe, consider giving this method a try. Take everything out of your closet, and put it all back with the hangers backwards. Then, when you wear something, put it back with the hanger the normal way. After a few months you’ll start to get a good idea of what you’re using and what’s just taking up space. This technique can also be easily adapted for things that don’t go on hangers – put shoes away upside down, or switch up your folding technique for items in the dresser.

Take 5

Not every decluttering and organizing project needs to be an ordeal. For this method, declutter 5 minutes at a time. Pick something quick from your “divide and conquer” task list, or for more ideas check out this article by Leo Babauta at Zen Habits for 18 different 5 minute decluttering tasks.

First decluttering and organizing, then junk hauling

What it all comes down to is downsizing your possessions will save you time and money while making you happier!

 

Many have found that owning less simplifies their lives. R&R is here to help with junk hauling services.

Alright, so we’ve established the benefits of downsizing and organizing your space. But how can we approach such a daunting task? Let’s take a look at some decluttering tips:

The 4 (or 5) box method

For this technique, you’ll designate 4 different bins to 4 clean up categories. Big plastic tubs work well, but you can use any kind of container you have on hand. The 4 categories are:

Things to put away – for items left out of their assigned spots
Things to repair – for things that need fixing. Be careful with this one! Only keep things that you actually plan to repair and use.
Things to donate – When was the last time you used it? If you can’t remember, someone else could probably make better use of it.
Things to throw away/recycle – think of old greeting cards, junk mail, paid bills, etc. You will probably need 2 bins for this one unless you plan to sort your garbage from your recycling later.

Divide and conquer

One reason decluttering your home can be so daunting is because it initially seems like an insurmountable task. But, as they say, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For this method, make a list of decluttering or organizing tasks. Your list should contain both big, time-consuming jobs (reorganize and clean the garage), and small, quick-and easy ones (clean off the entryway table). Then, tackle your list one item at a time. Have a few extra minutes? Pick something easy from your list. Got a whole afternoon to spend? Choose something more involved. Once you’re done, be sure to check it off the list so you can get the sense of accomplishment that comes with progress!

Minimalism and junk hauling

For a long time, most Americans have lived by the idea that success can be measured by material possessions. This idea is somewhat baked into our capitalist economic system. However, throughout the centuries, there have been people who refused to buy into the more materialistic ideologies in our culture. In recent years, they’ve called their movement minimalism, and although they aren’t a highly organized group, they are unified by one idea: that owning fewer possessions leads to greater happiness. Now, the majority of people aren’t about to move into a tiny house, but that doesn’t mean the masses can’t also reap the benefits that come from owning less and organizing more. It can be quite a lot of work to declutter and organize, especially after years of building up more and more possessions. Fortunately, R&R Containers is here to help with junk hauling services for jobs both large and small!

Many have found that owning less simplifies their lives. R&R is here to help with junk hauling services.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of decluttering and organizing:

No more rebuying and wasting things

Have you ever bought something, just to find out shortly after you already had it and forgot where you put it? Do you have a closet or cabinet full of expired vitamins and half-full bottles of cold medicine? How many expired food staples are lurking in the back of your cupboard? Get organized and stop throwing your hard earned money in the garbage!

Easier to clean

All of the possessions we accumulate require cleaning and maintenance, whether it’s upholstery cleaning for that reading chair nobody ever sits in, or the entire extra room you had to dedicate to storage. Save yourself time by clearing it all out!

Save space

How many people you know who can actually park the number of cars in their garage that the garage was designed for? I know that in my neighborhood it seems like garages are just as frequently used to store boxes of holiday decorations and outdoor equipment as they are to park cars. How about people who have a whole room of their houses dedicated to storage, whether it’s a spare bedroom, basement, or attic. Wouldn’t you rather have all that space for your man cave or lady’s lair?

Roll off Container Rental for Winter Home Improvement

Why not spruce up the place while you’re cooped up inside this winter?

Now that we’re rapidly heading for the shortest day of the year, winter feels in full swing. Winter home improvement projects are a great way to stay active in the dark winter months, and they will make your home even more warm and inviting during the rest of the winter and coming spring. Of course, R&R Containers is here to help with all your roll off container rental needs!

Broadly speaking, we can look at winter home improvement projects through two categories – those that improve efficiency and those that improve livability. Some would say that all of the efficiency upgrades should be done before winter begins, but it’s never too late to start saving money!

Home improvement projects to boost efficiency

Science never stops making things more efficient. When it comes to home improvements, there are a dizzying array of options for making your home more green. Some of them, however, are best left for the spring. So, what efficiency minded projects are a good fit for winter time?

Seal up the cracks – any gap big enough to see light through means you’re losing money. Use weatherstripping, caulking, plaster, or another appropriate material to make sure your home is airtight.

Add insulation – the most obvious candidate for insulation is the attic, but don’t forget about crawl spaces, and places like your attic door and water heater.

Making your home more livable

Since you’re trapped inside anyway, why not take on a project to improve your interior space, like new carpet? What about any renovations you might be putting off, like a bathroom? There will be plenty of time in the spring for things landscaping and painting your home’s exterior. Why not use the colder months to make the insides shine?

Whether your project needs just some junk hauling service or a 15 yard roll off container rental, look no further than R&R Containers. Call today for a quote!

Junk hauling services - get that unsightly junk out of your life

We all know what a pain junk can be. Personally, it always bothers me when I see my neighbors leaving their junk out. In my neighborhood, some people seem to believe if they leave their junk out by their trash can, it will disappear. They must know the garbage man isn’t going to take anything that isn’t in the can, but they still do it.

Last week, my neighbor even leaned an old box spring up against his dumpster, like he was saying, “here, now you have to move this to get to the can, you might as well take it, right?” Well, lo and behold, trash day comes and goes, and he still has a full dumpster with a box spring leaned up against it. If only he’d gotten some professional junk hauling services!
