Do I Need To Keep This Thing?

There’s no putting it off any longer–it’s definitely time for spring cleaning. That means no more excuses about decluttering! Time to get into the nooks and crannies of your home and get rid of your unwanted items.

When people get down to decluttering, a common question comes up: “How do I decide what to keep?” That’s a great question! Mr. Junk is here to help answer it, and help with all your decluttering and junk removal needs in metro Atlanta.

First of all, ask yourself a very important question: “Do I use this?” Not “Do I think I’ll use this.” Be honest with yourself. When was the last time you used this particular item? If you can’t immediately answer that question, or it was more than a few years ago, consider giving it the old heave-ho.

Toss Items That:

  • Are broken beyond your ability/time available to repair them
  • Are duplicates (how many coffee mugs do you need, really?)
  • You can’t identify
  • Don’t fit
  • Are in the way (or find a better place for them)
  • You’re only keeping because you think you should (it’s ok to get rid of unwanted gifts. Really!)

Keep Items That:

  • You use regularly (daily, weekly, or seasonally)
  • Make you feel truly joyful (you don’t have to get rid of your photographs and memorabilia!)
  • Have a place (and no, “in a box” does not count as a place, unless they’re seasonal items in storage)

Decluttering can seem overwhelming, but don’t panic. Remember, you don’t have to handle the junk-hauling yourself! Contact Mr. Junk for a free quote and save yourself the hassle.
