Collections don’t happen overnight; they add up over time as we get older or the longer, we stay in one place. While the desire to collect things is normal, it can become a problem if you never, or rarely, get rid of anything. Holding on to things “just in case” can quickly lead to junk overtaking your home.

If this sounds familiar, you’re in good company. Most people have a habit of keeping things they think they may one day need or have trouble letting go of.  The good news is that getting rid of clutter and junk can do more than just give you back your space, it can also save money – let’s talk about it! 

Avoid repurchasing items 

Have you ever bought a new flashlight only to find the three last versions that went missing? They say the best way to find something you have lost is to buy a replacement, and plenty of clutter comes from this truth. It’s a challenge to find things when you have junk drawers, closets, storage bins and boxes full of odds and ends. This can lead you to purchase replacements you really don’t need. It may not seem like much, but over time it adds up! Getting rid of junk and clutter can save you time, stress, and money from replacing “lost” items. 

Cut storage costs 

What do you do when you run out of storage space at home? If you’re like many people, the easy answer is to cart the extra stuff to a self-storage unit. This does indeed give you back some space, but it takes something else – your money! The cost of storage varies widely depending on the size, location and options like heating and cooling. But even if it is very affordable, you’re still stuck paying rent on your excess goods! Getting rid of the excess saves you a monthly storage bill.

Make your money back

Are you hanging onto things you don’t use anymore just because they’re functional or hold value? Some junk isn’t ready for the dump yet, but that doesn’t mean it needs to live with you. You can rehome these items and make some of your money back at the same time. There are several ways to do it too, like hosting a garage sale or selling your items online. Of course, any items that do not sell can be donated.

Reclaiming your space is a process but it’s worth it in the end. If you get overwhelmed just try to tackle it one room at a time and remember it’s a step in the right direction.  If you need some extra help give us a call or send us a message today!
