Like Mary Poppins but backwards…
One thing is for sure: we all have a lot more stuff than we used to. With televisions getting bigger and bigger, Swedish furniture manufactures pumping out cheap tables and even cheaper sofas by the boat load, our homes are getting over loaded with stuff that it just doesn't have the space for. Have you tripped over anything in your home lately and then struggled to find a place to put whatever it is that has been living in the hallway for the past month or two? It is all too easy for rooms to end up like junk shops without us even noticing. Not to worry though, because there are a few quick and easy ways for you to de-clutter your home.
Having a garage sale is not just an American thing. All you need to do is gradually migrate all the hurdles built up around your home, empty all your bulging cupboards and sift through your aging wardrobe and dump them all in a pile in your garage. Next stick a note through your neighbour's doors and sell all your stuff when they come round. Spare cash in your pocket too.
Alternatively, if you don't have any neighbours or you just feel like being a little bit more charitable, take all this stuff and drop it off at your local charity shop. In fact, some charity shops can even come round with a van and pick up everything you want to give them. This is especially good when you have big bits of furniture.
There are companies out there that specialise in waste removal London style, house clearances and office clearance London style that you can pay to come round and gut your house. They will arrange a time, turn up with a big van and a gang of strong arms and strip your house of everything you don't want. This obviously costs money but can save you a lot of time and effort.
Final solution is a strange one. You may have seen television shows where people invite film crews into their homes along with a host, who then show how gross your house is, then proceed to clear it up for you. Even if your home is not that dirty, what you could do, is make it really dirty on purpose, invite them round and when they are cleaning they will de-clutter your house for you. A little underhanded, a little gross and a little bit embarrassing… but at least you get the job done.
