Tackle That Renovation & Clean Up Project With the Right Mindset and Tools
There’s been a lot of talk recently about trying to minimize one’s life and get rid of unnecessary material possessions. Many of us might look into our garage and find that there are boxes and boxes of papers, junk, tools, mementos, and those well-intentioned gifts we didn’t have the heart to throw away are tossed on the shelf. Perhaps you’ve been wanting to make some much-needed renovations to your home. Well, now is the time!
Setting the Right Mindset to Tackle Those Larger-than-life Projects
Thanks to Marie Kondo—whose book led to her popular television show—ideas of uncluttering and organizing have hit the mainstream with a new tone. The book, titled The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, has led to an entire movement of people cleaning up their garages and bedrooms in order to free themselves of the unnecessary shackles of unwanted material possessions. Albert Einstein himself had something to say on the matter, “Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity…”
How Do I Start Clearing Up My Cluttered Home or Garage?
If walking into your garage produces a shudder-like reaction and leads you to shut off the light and walk away slowly, you’re likely due for a major clean up. Perhaps you’ve collected junk in the back shed, or the guest room, or your own closet. So how do people begin major clean-up projects? Here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Designate a zone and begin in sections. Big projects are often overwhelming and lead people to procrastinate simply because the larger task at hand seems too big. Yet, tackling one section at a time can be a lot more manageable.
- Schedule your work hours. People find it helpful to designate time on weekends, evenings, or days (whatever works for you) and stick to it. A few hours every weekend can really make a difference when it comes to tackling a big project.
- Think about clearing and not storing. People often make the mistake that re-organizing and neatly putting stuff that you don’t really want in a box is cleaning up. Is it really? The stuff is still there. It still occupies space. It still lingers without any real purpose. When trying to clean up, make sure you discard items you don’t want or need and don’t simply tuck them away.
Clearing Major Renovations: How a Dumpster Rental Can Help
If you’re about to engage in a renovation to your home, you might be in for a lot of chaos. The prospect of a remodel or renovation is exciting, but dealing with the debris and waste material often leads people to doubt whether it is worth the trouble. It doesn’t have to be difficult! Renting the right equipment and setting up the workspace is just as important as the work itself. Renting a dumpster can help you focus on the work at hand without worrying about how you’re discarding or getting rid of stuff.
