Spring Cleaning Time
All winter long things have piled up. It's been cold and you've been busy. After the holidays you were just glad to jettison the Christmas tree, decorations and to have a place to sit down and relax. You were happy if you could find a place in the garage for your vehicles. But now you've simply run out of room and are up to your eyeballs in, well, junk . . . too much of it. Now is a great time to start your "Spring Cleaning" routine.
The first step, of course, is to sort thru everything which has piled up over the past few months. Make several piles--one for stuff to definitely keep, another to definitely throw out and the last one for questionable things. Go through each room with these 3 categories in mind. For the questionable category, ask yourself when was last time this was used and how likely it will be used in the future.
Bring a trash can or large garbage bags along as you go from room to room. Try to disengage yourself from emotional attachments you have to certain things. If you must, make another category for these things. Maybe you will find a good place to file or store them. After you've done this you will have pared down your junk piles.
Now you can carefully consider how to neatly store what is left. Keep in mind storing things close to where they will be used is best. It's always good to label boxes before you set them up on shelves. Certain things are seasonal and won't be needed, say, until Christmas. Put them on the top shelf out of the way (unless they are way too heavy).
In all likelihood you will need more places to store your things. This is where we come in. We can help you determine the best method of storage and where it should be placed. Our experts can help you in this process from start to finish.
