Tip For A Smooth Back-To-School Transition

Heading into Labor Day Weekend means that next week, school kicks into high gear across the city. A few schools have already started up but it doesn’t seem official until the last long weekend of summer is over. Is your family ready for back-to-school? Here are some smart tips to help with the transition:

school-bus-1468791

Family Meeting

The first thing to do is have a family meeting. This can actually occur over dinner or at a restaurant. The purpose of the family meeting is to set the goals for the coming year. Whether this is first grade or 12th grade, there are things you expect of your student and things they expect of your. Setting these goals at the beginning of the school year will help keep everything in focus in the months ahead.

Get Back on Schedules

The concept of “it’s a school night” has probably been forgotten over the summer but now is the time to reintroduce that. This means getting everyone into bed earlier so they can get up earlier. You never want to get reports from teachers about your kid dozing off in class.

Plan out Snacks and Lunches

It’s a good idea to plan out lunches and after-school snacks for the week especial if you’re making them from scratch. This planning actually starts with grocery shopping on the weekend. If you can write out a menu for the week, then you’ll know what you need and what is getting made. More importantly, you won’t have to get into debates with the kids. Somehow writing things down makes it more “permanent.”

Get Rid of Clutter

It will also help to establish some cleanup policies for back-to-school. There shouldn’t be a trail of shoes, jackets and backpacks from the front door leading into the house. Everything needs a proper place. As for the kid’s closets, the more you can removed that isn’t every going to be worn again, the easier it will be to sort through the things they’re keeping. You might also need that room for new outfits if they’ve outgrown all the old stuff.

Helping you get rid of all that clutter is where Junk King Houston comes into play. However big the piles of unwanted stuff you have, the team from Junk King can get it removed in no time at all. A decluttering session with Junk King Houston is going to be a big help with your family’s back-to-school transition.

Tips For Successful Inventory Management

Do you know what’s in stock in your warehouse or storage room? You probably have a general idea and daily reports should keep you informed. The success of any business can be traced back to how well they handle their inventor management. Here are some tips that you can put to work for improving your company’s inventory management:

box-15287_1280

Contingency Planning

There is a certain amount of planning for the “worst case scenario” when it comes to inventory management. What happens if your sales suddenly spike and you find yourself running out of stock? What if your warehouse doesn’t have enough room for seasonal items? What if your main vendor runs out of product while you still have orders to fulfill? All of those kinds of things happen on a regular basis to nearly every business. Having a backup plan for these contingencies will help you keep on top of those potential setbacks.

Regular Auditing

Data reports should be able to tell you at any given time what is in stock and what needs to be reordered. There is nothing wrong with relying on that data but you should also factor in regular auditing that includes actual counts of the physical inventory. This will help uncover discrepancies and fill in any potential gaps.

Spot Checking

Sometimes a regular physical count of the inventory isn’t practical because of the volume involved. However, you could perform spot checks on those fast sellers to make sure the numbers match up. You don’t want to promise a shipment only to discover the warehouse is empty!

Clean Out Unwanted Inventory

Every warehouse or stock room will have some amount of “dead” inventory. This could be items that were returned and can’t resold or sent back to the manufacturer. There could also be items going back several years that aren’t even being sold by your company any longer. All of that inventory is taking up valuable space and should be hauled away for good. That can be accomplished with one call to Junk King Houston.

Junk King will send over just what you need to clear your warehouse: A moving crew and huge truck. All you have to do is tell the crew what you want hauled away and they’re do the rest. You don’t even have to involved your workers. Your company’s inventory management can be improved with some rubbish clearing from Junk King Houston. Put that plan into action today.

How To Have A Smooth Vacation

All-inclusive vacation packages are very popular. These can take place on a cruise or at a resort destination. One price covers all the accommodations, food and drink. It’s always nice to be taken care of on a vacation. The goal is to get to your ideal spot with as little hassle as possible. With today’s crowded airports, that might seem like a daunting task. However, if you put some of these tips into action, then you could be on your way to a smooth vacation.

beach-1149146_960_720

Use Frozen Solids To Keep Meds Cold

If you’re traveling with medications that need to be kept cold, then you can bring frozen bottles of water to keep them cool during the flight. Frozen water is allowed through the security lines.

Go Left

Studies of terminal traffic have shown that most travelers tend to follow their dominate hand when it comes to picking lines. Since most people are right-handed they’ll drift towards the right side of the security checkpoints. By going left, you might find yourself in a smaller line.

Pack Your Own Snacks

The closer you get to a plane, the more expensive things become. That’s why you should always look to pack your own dry snacks. An empty water bottle can be filled at a fountain, too.

Rest in the Chapel

If you have a few hours between flights and want a quiet place, then you can go to the airport chapel. Just be sure to set an alarm on your phone in case you doze off in all that quiet.

Look for Lounge Day Pass

First class passengers on many airlines can enjoy the benefit of lounges. What many travelers don’t know is that you don’t have to fly first class to gain access. You just have to pay for a day pass. This is a good idea if you’re in a major layover situation or you know your flight is going to be delayed by hours. It’s another reasonably quiet place that might be worth splurging on.

Before you leave, you’ll want to do all the normal things like putting your mail on hold and telling a neighbor. You might also want to get rid of rubbish. We’re not just talking about taking out the trash (which is important) but finally clearing all those bulky things you been wanting to get rid of. Junk King Houston can help with that. Make the return from your smooth vacation relaxing by walking into a home that is free of rubbish. Junk King Houston can make it happen.

Professional Junk Haulers For Houston

A perfect as your home is, it is hard to imagine you living there for an extended period of time without calling in a few service professionals. Plumbing backs up. Roofs leak. Appliances break down. That just means you have to find someone you trust that is offering a good deal. The same could be said for professional junk haulers. This isn’t a need based on something “breaking down” in your home but instead about the accumulated stuff you’ve collected over the years that you now want to get rid of. For a job like this, the only professional junk haulers you should consider are Junk King Houston.

17309643_1319001438179408_1493061611103126810_n

At a base level, a professional is anyone who gets paid for their services. But over the years, professional has come to mean someone who is providing exceptional service that goes above and beyond the call of duty. You can certainly apply that to Junk King. It might not seem that loading up junk needs a level of professionalism but it is important for Junk King that all their crewmembers are able to be licensed and bonded. They also have to possess a positive attitude about the work. That includes being able to problem solve those removal situations that call for an item to be dismantled.

The junk haulers that Junk King will provide you will be doing all the lifting and loading. That means everything you want to be taken away won’t have to be brought outside of the house. Leave it for the Junk King crew to pick up.

Don’t Let Junk Pile Up On Your Porch

Things have a way of piling up around the house. That holds true for mail, magazines, laundry and dirty dishes. It is also the same for junk. All kinds of things that are broken or have been replaced end up getting piled up in the garage, basement and even the porch. It’s easy to take care of those small piles but when it comes to the junk stuff, you might need to bring some outside help. You can find that help from Junk King Houston today.

southern-1212509_1280

Junk piles that you don’t see every day are easy to forget about. If you’ve given up on parking your car in your garage, then the only time you go in there is if you’re looking for something. That’s when the junk piles can be very annoying. Out on your porch, it’s hard to relax with a cool drink when you’re surrounded by old appliances and other rubbish. Of course, all of this stuff would probably already be gone if you could only put it in the trash. This is where Junk King Houston comes into play. They’re going to send over a team of junk haulers who will be able to clear those junk piles off your porch in less time than it takes to have a glass of sweet ice tea.

Put Junk King’s Pricing Estimator To The Test

It wasn’t that long ago, that when you needed to add up numbers, you did it the old-fashioned way with a pen and paper. Along came calculators and changed the way kids learn math. Now a calculator is a feature of every phone and smart watch. When was the last time you did math without a calculator? That ability for computer programs to do the math helps with online shopping. Now you can apply those same principles to junk removal. With Junk King Houston’s pricing estimator, you can easily generate an estimate for all your junk removal needs.

10325697_1064604040247394_2948765878364071046_n

With a few clicks, the pricing estimator lets you build a list of all the items you might want to get rid of. You have options to click on items from every room in your house. There is also a long list of things from the garage and backyard that you can add to the list. As you build out your removal list, the estimate will be adding up the figures but it’s not by the pound. Junk King’s pricing policy is all about volume. Will your stuff fill up half the truck, one-third or the whole truck? That will determined your final fee.

Your estimate will be compared to the actual inspection of your items by the crew. They might be able to look over things that seem to take up a whole truck and realize they can put it into half the truck. This is not something they’ll keep secret from you! Once the estimate is adjusted to reflect the actual situation, the work can begin. In no time at all, your stuff will be loaded up. It is just that simple.

Knowing you have a moving crew at your disposal can influence what you want to get rid of in a positive way. Remember, the crew is going to be doing all the lifting and loading and you should never feel guilty about having them lift something that is very heavy. For your next junk removal task, put Junk King Houston’s pricing estimator to the test and you’ll see what a great deal Junk King is.

How To Create The Perfect Sleep Environment

Do you know someone who can fall asleep in any place at any time? That is certainly a talent to be envious of. Most folks stick with the traditional bedtime that is between 10 to 12 at night and a wake up between 6 to 7 the following morning. It actually helps to stay on a consistent sleep schedule but that is not the only thing that can help you get to sleep. You need to create the perfect sleep environment. Here’s how:

bedroom-389258_960_720

Eliminate Noise and Light

Darkness has a way of “tricking” out bodies into falling asleep. It is how we’re “coded.” When it is time for sleep, your bedroom should be as dark as possible. Blinds and/or curtains can go a long way towards cutting out the light. What about the noise? That should also be reduced as much as possible. If you live near a busy street or have roommates or family members that are staying up, then you should try to find ways to block of the noise that is generated. A sound machine that produces sounds of wave or white noise can help. Even a fan can greatly eliminate those outside noises.

Keep Things Cool

Your sleep environment should be cool. Aim for room temperatures between 65 and 68 degrees. There should also be adequate ventilation. Again, the idea of a stationary or ceiling fan can be a big help. Running the AC all night might become too expensive to maintain.

Use Your Bedroom for Sleeping Only

Your sleep environment should be just for that: Sleeping. That means avoiding doing work while in bed or watching TV. When you do that, your brain starts to associate the bedroom with those distractions and it will become harder to focus on sleep, which should be the primary goal.

Make Sure Your Bed Is Comfortable

If you are constantly waking up with stiff neck or sore back, then you need to take a hard look at your pillow and mattress. Both of those items need to be replaced if they’re pushing beyond being eight years old. Getting rid of an old pillow is easy but mattress requires the kind of help provided by Junk King Houston. Their moving crew and truck is all you need to get rid of that mattress and any other clutter you’ve been holding onto. One junk removal session with Junk King Houston can help you create the perfect sleep environment.

 

The Best Way To Handle Bike Disposal And Junk Clearing

The first rule that parents learn with a child is that it will be years before they get a good night’s sleep again. The second rule is that kids outgrow everything. Some grow faster than others but you can count on replacing shoes, shorts, pants and shirts on a regular basis until those kids are grown and have moved out. And it’s not just clothes that get outgrown but also toys and bikes. Old toys are easy to get rid of but that bike becomes a bit more of a challenge at least it was before Junk King Houston started collecting around town. Now you can take care of your old bike disposal and junk clearing with one quick phone call.

Junk King provides the truck and the manpower to get this job done. Technically, it would only take one mover less than a minute to load an old bike onto a truck. But why just get rid of the bike when you can get rid of so much more in the same session. This is a chance to finally clear out your garage, closets and spare rooms of all that unwanted stuff that you keep tripping over. Say goodbye to old furniture, appliances and electronics. How much space is that going to open up around your house?

When the crew is done loading up all the things from the inside they can out to the backyard and make sure work of clearing all kinds of yard waste and debris. Do you have a junk pile out there of lumber and scrap metal? It can all be cleared in a single Junk King session.

Most of what Junk King collects won’t ever make it to the landfill. That’s because the company prefers to make drops offs to recycling centers or charities. This is how they’ve been getting rid of junk since they began collecting it over 12 years ago.

If you know what you want to toss out, then give Junk King a call. They’ll probably have it all cleared by tomorrow. Your old bike and junk can be gone fast when you put Junk King Houston on the job.
