Tips To Help Declutter Your Fairfax Home This Holiday Season

There’s something undeniably magic about the holidays in the Fairfax region that always enchants locals and visitors alike. It could be the way the snow and hoarfrost decorate the trees above carpets of shimmering white fields. Or perhaps it’s simply the aura of so many generations celebrating Christmas in the region for the last four centuries. Whatever the reason, the holiday season is a wonderful time to get out when you can and enjoy the beauty of this part of the Capital region and Old Dominion, the Commonwealth of Virginia. And this is especially true if you desperately need to declutter your Fairfax home!

What to do After You Manage to Declutter Your Fairfax Home

Homes all over this part of the country often have the same problem: the need to declutter. No matter whether your house or apartment is in Silver Spring, Ashburn, Manassas, Vienna, Alexandria, Centerville or Fairfax, clutter and excess junk are a problem.

And for those whose living spaces have become particularly bad, it’s a fair question to ask, “Where do I start?”

It’s no shame to admit that you might need some help in figuring out how to declutter your home. Not that there’s a particularly “right” way to do it. But there are better ways. And the best way is to start with junk removal.

The problem with this for many homeowners, renters, and others is identifying what constitutes “junk” in their home. They say that one person’s junk is another person’s treasure. Okay – so, maybe that’s not what they say, but you get the idea!

Because junk removal is a basic first step to effective decluttering, we suggest that anything you have stored in your basement, attic, garage, closets, or outside storage shed for more than a year – and may never use – should be gotten rid of.

Categorizing all your “stuff” into piles labeled “Keep,” “Donate,” and “Toss” is a great start. But you can’t simply make new piles and then cram it all back into the same spaces in your home. You must take the next step of real junk removal.

Which is why Junk King Fairfax specializes in residential junk removal.

Decluttering Your Home and Recycling: Having a Green Holiday Season

Because so much of what makes up the clutter and junk in our homes is actually recyclable, it makes no sense to simply load it all in a pickup truck, take it to a landfill – if you even have one nearby – and dumping it all. And this is especially true for junk items such as old electronics, or e-waste.

The best solution for excess electronics and e-waste is electronic recycling. But how do you make that happen?

Well, the good news is that Junk King Fairfax can help eliminate your extra junk and recycle electronics and e-waste, as well. Electronic recycling also reminds us that recycling is not simply limited to metal, plastic, paper, and glass. And the reality of recycling is that there is much more in your junk and clutter piles that can be recycled or reused than just the electronics, as well.

And, if your unwanted stuff is still usable, then you should definitely separate your junk and clutter items into “donate” piles. That way, you can arrange for these to be transported to your local donation center or two. And those donation centers could include Junk King since we make it one of our goals to divert as much usable junk to charitable organizations as possible.

Once you’ve purged your living spaces of all the excess junk and clutter, it’s time to assess your existing storage needs and availability.

Conquering the Clutter Conundrum with Storage

When we speak of storage, we are not talking about all those places you crammed your unneeded or unwanted stuff into previously. Now you must relegate your “stored items” to dedicated storage spaces and only as much as reasonably required.

It’s an inescapable fact that almost everyone living in the Fairfax area, like the rest of the country, needs extra storage space.

At minimum, there are two feasible options for most homeowners and renters that do not involve renting self-storage units. These would be outdoor storage sheds that can be placed in your backyard or side yard, and good garage storage systems.

Outdoor, residential storage sheds can be as small as three feet by three feet and just six feet tall, to massive sheds that could double as a cabin. The only limitations are space to place them and your budget.

On the other hand, for those who have a garage and want to use it as either a dedicated storage space, or still park cars in it while optimizing the remaining space for storage, both are feasible. What that does not mean is piling junk along the walls, up on the rafters, and down the middle of your garage!

As one source explains,

Assess your garage storage space and begin storing items in their proper homes. Here are some easy (and free) ways to create more storage space in your garage:

  • Utilize vertical space
  • Use what you have, or purchase the right products
  • Make sure dangerous items (chemicals, tools) are stored in a locked cabinet if children are in the house

When planning your garage storage, don’t buy an organizing system and then install it and see if it fits all of your stuff. Instead, take a conservative approach to storage planning. Start with some basic garage organizers, like shelving and a good step stool. Work with the basics and then expand out as you see fit.

After you have successfully reduced your clutter, donated what you can, and optimized and maximized your storage space, you still need to get rid of the remaining junk.

And there’s a “best” way to do that, as well.

Junk Removal in Fairfax Need Not Be a DIY Project Like Decluttering Your Home

Of course, you have several options when it comes to getting rid of your household junk and unwanted clutter. A fairly common approach for some people, a Bagster bag is a small, portable, three-cubic yard bag made of a tough, woven material. Think: small “collapsible” dumpster.

However, the problem with Bagster bags is that they are only for single use, and you must first purchase the bag at a home improvement store or online.

While this option does have a certain appeal, it may not be sufficient for your needs and does involve quite a bit of work on your part. Making a call to Junk King Fairfax, on the other hand, is easy. And not only is it cost-effective, but they will pick up and haul away all your junk material no matter how much it is.

And they do all the heavy lifting!

You could be living in Herndon, Arlington, Bethesda, Falls Church, Springfield, or Washington and the service is still the same. Reliable, efficient, and affordable. Oh, and did we mention green? It’s true: Junk King always takes the time and the effort needed to consistently recycle as much junk as we possibly can. In fact, we routinely recycle as much as 60 percent or more of everything we collect.

Fairfax area residents can be confident that not only will all their excess clutter find a new home, when possible, but that their junk will not all simply end up in one of the rapidly diminishing number of landfills in our area.
