When it comes to back-to-school time around many houses everything changes. That starts with the time that alarm clocks are set in the morning. Schedules also have to adapt to dropping off and picking up kids at all kinds of different hours. There’s also homework supervision that becomes part of every night. Once those adjustments in the schedules have been made it is easy to fall into the school year routine. It helps when the home environment can remain organized. That’s why a major back-to-school decluttering session from Junk King Houston should be part of your agenda.
What Is in The Closets?
The last thing any parent wants to hear on a school day morning from their kid is, “I don’t have anything to wear.” That usually comes after the child has spent some time going through their closets and dressers for that “perfect” outfit. A lot of parents have discovered that picking up the outfits the night before cuts down on this drama in the morning. This is also where the decluttering work comes into play. If you can spend time sorting through the closet and pulling out all the things you know that your child has outgrown, then that will be less for them to have to sort through.
After you’ve done that closet clearing work there will probably be a decent pile of clothing to dispose of. You might also do the same with your closets and outfits. All of that discarded clothing doesn’t have to end up in the trash. When Junk King is in charge of taking it away that clothing will often end up going directly to a local charity. That way it can be put back into circulation. That is always a good thing with getting rid of unwanted items from around the house.
You can set up your Junk King session online or over the phone. Either way you can be assured that you will have a prompt response from the company. If you have everything sorted and ready to go, then junk King might even be able to provide you with the same day pickup.
One call to Junk King Houston will take care of your back-to-school decluttering plan. That is one mission you definitely want accomplished!
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:
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.
Sometimes a little debris can be a good thing. Folks over in Galveston are finding their shores covered in more seaweed this season. Actually, that’s good news for the sea turtles that make the sargassum or seaweed their home. There are all sorts of goodies floating in the seaweed that the turtles feed on. Of course, for someone looking for a pristine beach, that ocean grass can be an eyesore. You just have to remember it’s for the good of the turtles. When it comes to debris around you home, it’s hard to find a good excuse for keeping it around. That’s why you want to arrange to have it picked up by Junk King.

Most professional organizers will tell you that when it comes to decluttering your home, you should sort your stuff into three piles: Keep it, toss it and donate it. Deciding what to keep should be determined by practicality. Are you still using that item? If not, when is the next time you plan on using it? When you come across something that hasn’t been touched in over a year, it might be time to toss it out. If still has some value, you could opt to donate it. That actually is good for the environment because you’re not going to be adding to a landfill.
