Out with the Old, In with the New – Decluttering

It’s amazing how much stuff you can acquire over the years in your home. Often, it’s only when we really need the space or we are moving that we realise just how much stuff we’ve accumulated.

But what to do with it?

If you’re planning for a sale, doing renovation works, or require more space for an event or new operation – then you may need help decluttering with services from the Doolan team.

Here are some tips for decluttering your space, together with some of the services we offer at J Doolan Removals that will help you on the way!

Garbage First

The best thing to start with when decluttering is the garbage. After all, it’s the garbage that gets in the way of everything else – and it’s also the easiest thing to start with as it provides the space to make the rest of the job easier.

But the key is to be brutal! When deciding whether something is garbage or not – ask yourself whether it’s something you’ll ever realistically use again? Consider also whether it’s an item that you can easily borrow or rent on the odd occasion that you need it?

Deal with Things by Categories

Looking at a room and deciding how to declutter it can be an overwhelming experience. There are so many things it’s impossible to know where to start. That’s why organising things to tackle by categories is a good idea. Think about organising your clothes first and completing that task. Then think about organising books. Then about organising spare technological equipment …

That way you can split up the task into manageable units, and also set yourself one category per day if you wish to spread it over time.
