Kid off to College? Perfect Time to Organize the House

A lot has changed in the house since your kid has left for college. Obviously, you miss them a great deal but you might not miss the trail of clutter that they seem to leave behind every time they walked through the door. Plus, there’s no telling what kind of “disaster” they left behind in the bedroom. The best way to combat your feelings of empty nest syndrome is to get active. That makes this the perfect time to organize your house. Start with what you can get rid of. Consider these possibilities:

Furniture

There are at least two or three pieces of furniture in every home that probably has seen better days. Often when you buy something new to replace a sofa or recliner, that old piece ends up being stuffed in a spare room or down in the basement. If you know you’re never going to use this furniture again, then you should get rid of it and open up that space.

Electronics

Just as furniture gets replace so do all your electronics. You might have in storage old DVD players, monitors, gaming systems, printers and laptops. They’ve all been replaced and upgraded now but you know you shouldn’t throw that stuff in the trash. You need to find a certified recycling center that can handle e-waste.

Clothing

When was the last time you want to your closet and pulled out every single outfit? You may discover some amazing outfits that you forgot you had. More likely, you come across a lot of things that you’re never going to wear again. That’s also true for shoes, coats, hats and scarves.

Broken Gadgets

Anytime something gets broken the hope is it will someday be repaired and put back into use. But that is often easier said than done. Do you have a broken vacuum cleaner in a closet that never going to get fixed? What about a toaster oven or microwave? It would be a lot cheaper to replace those things then try and get them repaired. Now they are just taking up space.

Get Your Home Ready For Fall With These Helpful Tips

The change of seasons come on fast. Wasn’t it just yesterday that you were planning your summer vacation? Now it is officially back to school time, which means we’re zooming into fall.

Check the Roof

It should be easy to do a visual inspection of your roof from the ground. If you notice something that seems out of sorts, then grab a pair of binoculars for a closer look. If you feel comfortable climbing on a ladder, then check out your roof that way but that might be a job better left for professionals.

Get Your Chimney Clean

It might have been several months since you lit a fire in the fireplace. If you didn’t clean your chimney at the end of last winter season, then you definitely want to get it done before you light your first fire of the fall. It’s always good to not only get your fireplace clean but also inspected.

Stock Up On Your Firewood

The best time to buy firewood is when no one is thinking of firewood. That is right now. If you’re going to buy a lot of firewood for the entire fall/winter season, then it’s best to store it away from the house under some protective cover.

Inspect Your Siding

Along with checking for any damage on your roof, you also want to go around the entire exterior of your home and check for cracks or holes in your siding and foundation. Could probably do minor repairs but it’s important to plug up those entry points not only to keep out the drafts but also uninvited pests.

Clean Your Gutters

If you saw any icicles last year alone your rain gutters, then it’s a good indication that those gutters are clogged. You can wait until after the leaves have completely fallen off the tree before cleaning your gutters but if it’s been a while then you may need to make two trips up the ladder: one now and one at the end of fall.

Get Rid Of Your Rubbish

As you go through this fall prep, you may also spot a lot of rubbish you can get rid of. Whether that’s clutter you’re keeping underneath a deck or along the side of your garage it doesn’t do you any good to hold onto it. One call to Junk King Denver can make it all disappear. They’ll put a plan into action that involves two capable movers and a big truck. That’s really all you need to get rid of all your unwanted rubbish.
