Why Fall Cleanup Projects Are More Important This Year
The arrival of fall means shorter days and soon colder temperatures. It also means spending more time inside.
With a vaccine to COVID-19 not yet an option, it looks like this winter will involve spending more time at home. Some kids are learning from home, whether they’re in elementary school or college. And many people will continue to work from home.
If your worried about everyone feeling cramped while being stuck inside, then this might be the time to begin a fall cleanup project.
In the past fall projects might have been something as simple as cleaning up the yard or finally clearing out the clutter from your garage. This year it might be a good idea to be a little more aggressive.
If you and your family are going to be spending more time inside and less time outside because of the cold, then more room might be crucial.
One room might be your workspace, another might be where your children do their schoolwork and another room is where your spouse is working. Getting more space in these rooms would benefit everyone.
Where to Begin
The place to begin your fall cleanup project is not where everyone is going to be stationed. Instead it’s the rooms where you traditionally tuck away items you never use or that one day were to go the landfill.
This might be the attic, the basement, or the garage. Or a combination of all three.
Why clean out these rooms first. Because most likely you’ll have items in the rooms your working in that you might want to clear out to make space. These are items that you don’t want to dispose of but could do without for a while.
Another reason this is a good time to clear out attics and basements is that this is often where you store your holiday decorations. Every year you go through a maze of stored items to get to your Halloween or Christmas decorations. It would be nice to avoid that this year. You have enough stress in your life.
Taking Your Fall Cleanup to the Next Level
The beginning of your work was relatively easy as you simply got rid of items you knew in advance you wanted to dispose of.
Yet, there are also items you never really considered getting rid of before. You had set them aside, but without knowing if you would ever use them again.
Clear out more space, by going through boxes and deciding what you need to keep and what you can live without.
Once you have as much as you can get rid of, then you can begin rearranging furniture.
The Next Stop – How To Get Rid of Your Junk
If some of the items your getting rid of still have value, then consider donating them. More than ever people are relying on charities for help.
The rest you could take to the local landfill. Provided that is an option where you live and that you have a vehicle to haul everything in.
And also have the time to load everything up, make the journey to the landfill, then empty everything out.
A Better Option Would Be to Rent a Dumpster
With a dumpster just outside your door, you can haul things out and toss them in as you go. No creating a pile of junk you have to deal with later.
Concerned that your project is too small for a dumpster? Most dumpster rental companies have various sizes to choose from, so you can get one that fits your specific needs.
If there is some space left over, then take advantage of it. Clear out some of the yard waste that you never got around to. Or look for other items you want to get rid of.
Once you have everything in the dumpster your work is done. The dumpster rental company will haul it away.
Unless things change soon, space will most likely be a premium this year. Why not do what you can to make as much room as possible so everyone can focus on their work and not feel cramped.
