Mudroom Organization in Time for Back-to-School

For some school’s already started. For others it’s just around the corner. Whether you’re knee-deep in school supplies or staying ahead of the mess, here are a few tips to cleaning out your mudroom and making the fall transition a smooth one.

Clear Out Last Year’s ClutterBackpack

Old junk has a way of accumulating, and kids often cling to last year’s favorites. Toss old supplies and homework and consider replacing larger items, like a backpack that’s been dropped into one mud puddle too many. Ask your children to dispose of one thing for each new school item. If they’re having trouble purging possessions, try setting aside items to discard later. A week out of sight may loosen their grip. Once you’ve determined what will stay and what will go, you can contact your local junk removal company to come pick up the items that they no longer want or have any use for.

Utilize Old Furniture and Storage

Find ways to maximize space and recycle unused storage. Try repurposing an old laundry basket to keep shoes out of the way or emptying out a cupboard to store backpacks. If you have shelves, line them with bins for easy cleaning. For added flair, let your kids customize their bins. Label each nook so they can really have fun with it (and to keep them accountable for staying tidy!).

Everything in Its Place

It’s easy to let junk manage you, but the solution is just as simple: give everything a home. Hang a hook or place a bowl for your keys. Keep shoes on a shelf or out of sight in a closet. Use racks or cupboards to keep backpacks out of your entryway. Give each of your little students a catchall for those odds and ends that may wind up on the floor. And give yourself one, too! The easiest way to discover what you don’t need is to organize the things you do need.

Out with the old, in with the new and organized. Call Mr. Junk to remove your mudroom clutter  and help purge those early morning tripping hazards.

Replacing Old Yard Furniture

old yard furniture

Updating your home’s curb appeal is a great way to add satisfaction and value to it if you plan to sell. Most of your gardening and planting are most likely finished by now. Since you are not spending your weekends at the plant nursery, now is a good time to reassess the status of your old lawn furniture. Is it time to make that outdoor living upgrade that you have been wanting for years? Now might be the perfect time to have your old yard furniture hauled away, and replace it.

Summer may have officially just started, but not according to retailers. A few days after the Fourth of July, retail businesses have already started to think about the fall product line coming out. Here are a few reasons why it might be a good time to wave your old furniture goodbye.

  • Retailers are starting to slash prices for outdoor furniture. Why? Most people get excited about the warm months ahead when it’s still cold out or at the beginning of spring. By the time July hits, enthusiasm dies down and there is a lull. This is a great opportunity for savvy shoppers who want to immediately enjoy new outdoor furniture for the next few months and the amazing prices.
  • Your old furniture can have a second life. Our Atlanta junk removal services cover furniture removal. When we pick up your old outdoor furniture, we look to recycle as much as possible or give it away to families in need before we consider taking it to a landfill.

When getting rid of your old yard junk, consider furniture removal services when you are getting ready to spruce up your outdoor living area.

Debris Removal After a Strong Storm

Strong storms can pop up out of nowhere, and wreak havoc on our neighborhoods in a matter of minutes. The Atlanta areas is especially susceptible to strong storms during late spring and all the way to late November at the end of the tropical storm season. These storms carry an arsenal of power that can damage your home or property. Heavy rains that can flood basements, hail that breaks windows, or wind that uproots trees can all cause headaches galore.

debris removal Atlanta, GA

If your home has unfortunately fallen victim to a strong storm or rain, the last thing you should have to deal with is being the one to clean the mess up. Making claims, assessing damage, and even missing out on work due to damage or power outages can be exhausting. We strongly suggest letting an Atlanta storm debris expert take care of the tree branches, broken windows, or any other storm debris for you. When those storms pass through that never seem to be over, flooding can cause issues, especially in basements. If you need your carpet removed due to too much water damage, we can haul that away too!

The tropical storm season has just started for 2013. Please take the proper precautions to stay safe and keep your home free of damage. If you run into trouble, contact Mr Junk for a helping hand in getting things back to normal by cleaning up storm damage.

Closet Organization Ideas

It’s nearly summer time in Georgia! The kids will soon be out of school for summer break. Do you need to get your closets in order for the summer months ahead? The team at Mr Junk, in Canton, GA shares some great Closet Organization Tips  in this post.

Tips for Closet Organization

  • Cleaning out a ClosetShoe space: Use a slanted platform so you can store your shoes in your closet and actually see them. You can make your own with plywood if you are handy and want to save money.
  • Seasonal Storage: If you didn’t clear out your closets in the Spring this year, now is a good time to start seasonal organization. Store your winter clothes in a storage bin (outside of the closet especially if you have a small one). In the winter store your summer clothes in that same bin. You will have much more space in your closet no matter what size it is if you practice this at least twice a year.
  • Start Categories: For an easier way to pick out your outfits in the morning arrange your clothes according to category. For instance put all your dress pants together, dress shirts, casual shirts, jeans, and work clothes.  If you really want to get organized also consider arranging your clothes by color. You’ll be able to not only pick a style with ease but also the color you want.

What happens when you clean out and organize your closets and still find out you have too much stuff  to be neat and organized?  What will you do with all that extra junk? Mr Junk can haul any and all of your old clothes,shoes, and other items that are causing your closet to be overcrowded. All you have to do is give us a call and point us in the direction of the mess. We will clean it out and haul it all away, leaving you with a cleared out space to work with. If you have any questions or would like to know more about our services please contact us!

How To Organize Your Recycling at Home

If you are a family that recycles you know that it can be tough at times to keep all that junk organized before it is picked up. The team at Mr Junk in Canton, GA shares tips on:

How to Organize Your Recycling:


  • Decide where the best place to keep your recycling is in your home. Some people like to use their kitchen and organize a cabinet or two to keep their recycling stored until it is picked up. While others prefer having it set up in the basement or garage for easier transport to the outside pick up.  Once you have made this decision you will just need to take a few more steps to get your recycling piles organized.
  • Separate Glass, Plastic, and Metal. Depending on your particular recycling service you will need to make sure you recycle certain items and not others. Check with your service to be sure you aren’t hanging on to something to recycle that they won’t accept. To keep things simple for your family label your bins accordingly.
  • Keep Paper and Cardboard stored separately as well. Most recycling places require you to sort your items like these so go ahead and get bins and label them for Paper and Cardboard.
  • If you have room in a closet or cabinet or even shelves keeping these things stored in one of those areas will keep the rest of your home feeling less cluttered. That way you won’t be tempted to give up on your recycling adventure just because it can be a big mess.

What do you do if you have large or small  items that can’t be recycled but need to be gotten rid of? Do you have an old sofa or refrigerator that is taking up valuable space in your garage or kitchen that could be used for your new recycling center in your home? If so give Mr Junk a call our team is ready to help you haul off any junk that you are ready to get rid of. If you have any questions or would like to know more about our services please contact us.
