Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Y’all!

Thank you, Austin, for giving us the opportunity to do business with you! We are thankful to live here and wish you all a happy holiday!

Winter Stuff

Cold weather can bring out the hoarder in all of us. More jackets! Thicker socks! Ski bibs! Everyone wants to stay warm. This can lead to a gathering of winter stuff. Before you pack away those snow boots for the eighth year in a row, ask yourself if it’s worth it.

Especially living in central Texas, we don’t experience an abundance of uncomfortably cold weather. We may pick up warm items for a ski trip, a cold-weather hunting expedition or to visit relatives up north. However, we don’t always need to keep all of these items forever.

Junk-King Austin is here to help you declutter and simplify your winter stuff. Whatever you decide you don’t need, we will come and pick it up for you. You can feel even better about taking advantage of Junk-King Austin’s services by knowing that we donate or recycle up to 60% of what we pick up – we care about our community as much as we care about your cluttered attic. Before packing away unneeded items for another year of dust-collection, call Junk-King and save yourself the space and the effort.

Home Organization For The Holidays

Efficient coordination and home organization are of the most stressful aspects of the holidays for many homes. However, home organization for the holidays does not have to be a thorn in your side. Junk-King Austin has some tips to help keep you sane:

  • Have a plan – make a list of what needs to be done, when people are coming into town and what parties you will be attending. Writing it out will help you feel less stressed, will enable you to keep track of it all and will aid you in delegating tasks you cannot finish on your own. 
  • One thing at a time – do not start 18 projects at once. Begin one task and work it to completion. This applies to cleaning as well. Focus on one room at a time, cleaning it to your satisfaction before moving on to the next room.
  • Relax – the most important part of the holidays is the relationships we invest in. Friends and family will likely not remember how clean your house was or if you were a couple of minutes late to dinner. What they will remember is how everyone was treated, the pleasant or unpleasant atmosphere and whether or not everyone was happy.

If you find you do not have enough space to hide your gifts or host your guests, Junk-King Austin is one call away from helping you out! We clean out any space –  in the home, at work, in a storage space – and haul away everything*. We can even haul off larger items like broken refrigerators, unwanted hot tub, broken down boats or vehicles and unused heating units. Let Junk-King Austin help reduce your stress this holiday season!

*Junk-King Austin does not haul away hazardous materials.

Holiday Decorating

Decorating for the holidays can be fun but can also be expensive. No one wants to overspend on holiday decorating at the same time that they need to buy gifts for everyone. Junk-King Austin has selected some of our favorite cheap and easy DIY Christmas decorations:

1. Bow Wreath
2. Pine Cone Christmas Tree
3. Toilet Paper Roll Reindeer**

If you’re having trouble finding room to store holiday decorations in your home, it may be time for a clean out! Junk-King Austin will clean out and haul away items in your attic, crawl space, garage, storage shed, closet – even under the bed. We clean any space and can haul away anything (except hazardous materials), including large appliances like freezers, automobiles and hot tubs. Junk-King Austin is in the giving spirit all year round by donating or recycling up to 60% of what we pick up. Happy decorating!
