If you are like most people, you have accumulated a surplus of material possessions throughout the years. Even if you aren’t a hoarder, you probably have all sorts of stuff in storage inside your home and possibly elsewhere. The time has come to declutter your living and/or working space to eliminate all the excess, free up space and simplify your life without the weight of an excess of material items.
However, decluttering in Chicago West Suburbs is not exactly easy, especially if you have not tackled a large decluttering project in the past. Fret not, as our junk hauling experts are here to help you declutter as efficiently as possible.

#1: Declutter With a Strategic Approach
If you were to attempt to declutter the entirety of your home or workplace in a morning, afternoon or evening, you would likely run out of time. Do not try to eliminate all the extra stuff in a small window of time. Pace yourself, decluttering one room at a time even if it takes an entire week or longer to complete the process.
Keep in mind, our junk haulers are here to make this project easier by hauling away all the clutter you no longer need or want. Simply point us in the right direction, tell us which items to haul and we will eliminate them for good.
#2: There is Nothing Wrong With a “Maybe” Pile
If you are like most people attempting decluttering in Chicago West Suburbs, you will create separate piles for donations, keeping, trashing and selling at a garage sale. However, some items simply do not fit into any of these categories. Create a “maybe” pile for items that you are indecisive about and you can determine their fate later on in the project. What matters most is that you eliminate the clutter in a comprehensive and timely manner to free up space in your home or workplace, reduce the chances of a trip and fall and ultimately enjoy a priceless peace of mind.
#3: Consider the Utility of Each Item
When determining which items to keep, trash or donate, consider the value they provide (or do not provide). If the item does not provide utility of any sort, there probably isn’t much reason to keep it unless it holds sentimental value to you or your loved ones. If the item in question does not make you happier or add utility to your life, do not hesitate to trash it, donate it or recycle it.
Above all, do not invest more than a couple minutes thinking about which items should be saved as opposed to donated or recycled. If you cannot make a decision within a couple minutes, put the item in the previously mentioned “maybe” pile and address it later.
#4: Use Your Vision as Motivation
You will undoubtedly be tempted to pause your decluttering project halfway through or simply give up. However, if you maintain a laser-focus on the end goal of clearing out your living or working space, you will have the incentive necessary to complete decluttering in Chicago West Suburbs rather than leave the project hanging for another time.
Close your eyes, envision what your home will look like with all the clutter removed and continue making progress with that goal in mind.
#5: Lean on the Junk Haulers!
Don’t try to do all the decluttering on your own.
