Dumpster Rental vs Junk HaulingNow, if you have a garage or attic (or both) that’s bursting at the seams, you’ll probably take care of it with your annual spring cleaning spree. But, it’s very easy to get discouraged because of the sheer amount. It’s very large and overwhelming. You might even consider a dumpster rental to get rid of it all in one fell swoop. However, there are a few things you should know.
We all know that growing landfill mass and, sadly, even trash floating out at sea are real issues, but it can be hard to know where to start if you want to make a difference. Thankfully, it’s actually quite easy to cut way down on your household trash by making tiny changes in your shopping habits and daily routines. —Houzz.comIf you do rent a waste container, you still have to do all the work. And, you can’t put everything inside it because those companies prohibit certain items. Plus, if you order the wrong size, you’ll spend more or waste money. It’s got to be the right size to make it affordable. But, it is you who must do all the labor. None of these are concerns with a junk hauling service.
Ways to Effectively Reduce Household Junk in Red BluffAll of this is to say, you’ll have to deal with it in a smart way. You can do this, if you have the right plan and the right mindset. Here’s how to go about reducing household junk and reclaim a lot more space:
- Get into a routine. The reason you’re now dealing with so much junk is because you don’t have a routine. Commit to a realistic routine and you’ll find the change serves you well.
- Make a commitment. The single biggest challenge you’ll face is the person in the mirror. Make a commitment to say “yes” or “no” and throw the word “maybe” out of your vocabulary during the process. If you give yourself a cheat, you’ll undermine yourself and that’s counterproductive.
- Sell, donate, and give away. Sell whatever you can first and then donate and/or give away the rest. This way, you’ll get rid of a lot more and you can even put a little cash in your pocket and/or snag a small tax write-off.
- Don’t bring more home. Of course, no matter how much you offload, it won’t deliver real results unless you stop adding to the problem.
