Declutter Your Home This Year: 10 Things to Declutter in 2024
Start the New Year with a Clean and Organized Home – And Call Eagle Cleanup to Help!
As the new year unfolds, it’s the perfect time to declutter your living space. Decluttering your home is like a breath of fresh air for your home and your mind, and it’s a great way to start off a new year!
Wardrobe: Start by tackling your wardrobe. Get rid of clothes that no longer fit, are out of style, or haven’t been worn in ages. Donate or sell items that are in good condition. Keep only the pieces that make you feel confident and comfortable!
Office: Paper clutter is a common menace in many household office spaces. Sort through old bills, receipts, and documents. Shred unnecessary paperwork and organize the essential ones in labeled folders. Consider digitizing important documents to reduce physical storage needs.
The Kitchen: Often the heart of the home, the kitchen can quickly become cluttered. Dispose of expired food items, empty containers, and kitchen gadgets you never use. Organize your pantry and cabinets, creating a more functional and visually appealing space. If you plan to upgrade your appliances this year, Eagle Cleanup can safely and easily remove old appliances to make room for the new.
Old/Broken Technology: Old electronics and cables have a way of piling up in drawers or corners. Discard outdated gadgets, chargers, and cables responsibly. Many electronic stores offer recycling programs for these items. If you cannot recycle an item, consider calling Eagle Cleanup to dispose of old technology safely. Streamline your tech collection to only include devices you regularly use!
Backyard: Is your New Year’s resolution to spend more time outside? Old lawn furniture, toys, and sports equipment can take up valuable space in your yard and limit what you can do. Sort through what is in-use and what is sitting rusting away, and call Eagle Cleanup to take things like broken trampolines, basketball hoops, etc. off your hands.
Home Decor: Decorative items can accumulate over time, leading to a cluttered and chaotic aesthetic. Assess your home decor and part ways with items that no longer resonate with your style or serve a purpose. Eagle Cleanup can easily take old sofas, carpets, tables, chairs, etc. out of your home, so be sure to call for a free estimate.
The Garage: Make space this year to utilize your garage! Start by creating piles for donations, throw away items, yard sale items, and items you plan to keep. Eagle Cleanup can take difficult items like old tires, old appliances and broken furniture away easily so you can clear out your garage for bigger and better things!
Closet Under the Sink: The space under the sink in bathrooms or kitchens is often a hiding spot for cleaning supplies and miscellaneous items. Declutter this space by discarding empty or expired cleaning products and organizing the remaining items. Consider using bins or baskets to keep things in order.
Unused Fitness Equipment: If you have exercise equipment gathering dust, donate or sell equipment you no longer use and make space for activities that align with your current lifestyle. An uncluttered workout area can be more motivating and inviting! Call Eagle Cleanup to pick up any broken treadmills or ellipticals that are not easily thrown away.
Sentimental Overload: While sentimentality is important, holding onto every sentimental item can lead to clutter. Evaluate sentimental items and keep only those that truly hold significant meaning. Consider creating a designated space or display for these items to appreciate them without overwhelming your living space.
Use the new year as an opportunity to declutter and organize your home so that you can start fresh. Because many throw away items can be difficult to get rid of on your own safely, be sure to call Eagle Cleanup so you can quickly get rid of the old and make room for the new!
