Home Downsizing Tips in San Diego

If you’ve made the smart decision to downsize your home then you’re in for a treat. That’s because you’ll have so much less to contend with in terms of home maintenance. You’ll also have a lot less clutter which is going to give your new environment a totally positive energy. Since you’re not the first to downsize, you have the benefit of all the practical experiences that have come before you.

For instance, you might want to rethink your furniture as multi-function. This could mean a bed with built-in drawers underneath the mattress/box spring. You could find an appropriate piece of furniture for your hallway that can contain shoes, coats, keys and backpacks. In others words, create a focused “drop-off” point. Downsizing is the time to focus on your closets. You’re not going to have the space you’ve been used to in the past. However, there are probably a lot of clothes which you never wear that can finally be donated.

Downsizing is also the time to shrink your various collections. There are many things you’ll want to keep but there are probably just as many that you can either put in storage or sell on eBay. For everything else, think plastic bins. These containers can be easily stacked in a closet. Label what’s on the inside and you shouldn’t have any problem finding what you’re looking for in the future.

As for anything else you’re not going to take with you, that’s just junk to get rid of. You can get all the help you need for that task by hiring Junk King of North San Diego.

San Diego Dirt Removal and Hauling

Over at UC San Diego, you’ll find a group of students taking a break from the books to do a little gardening. Sunday morning is gardening time for the volunteers who are cultivating Roger’s Community Garden to grow such organic goodies as herbs, onions, tomatoes, blackberries and its very own miniature fruit orchard. What they grow ends up being used at the campus cafeterias and is all supported by the Green Initiative Fund (TGIF). This is an organization who gives out grants to provide “funding for projects that reduce UC San Diego’s negative impact on the environment, in addition to making UC San Diego more sustainable in both the social and environmental sense.” In other words, they help gardens grow.

You might not be able to have a group of 30 volunteers come out to your garden once a week but that doesn’t mean you can’t get help when you need it, especially if you’re getting rid of dirt. After you’ve dug up soil, replaced sod or just digging to make way for a stone path you could be left with piles of dirt that have nowhere to go. That’s when you want to hire Junk King North San Diego. They’ll be able to pack up the dirt and send it on its way which would be far from your home!

The method Junk King uses for this type of removal isn’t rocket science. It consists of a couple of shovels, a wheel barrel, a few large containers, a big truck and some very capable movers. This is the list of what you get with every Junk King removal appointment. Keep in mind that it’s not just dirt that Junk King takes away but pretty much anything else that isn’t nailed down and you want tossed out.

This long list of potential junk items can include complete living room sets, mattresses, box springs, appliances, sporting equipment, auto parts, BBQ grills and lawnmowers. Does that cover what you want tossed out? Don’t worry if it doesn’t because the Junk King North San Diego crew has seen it all. Whether it’s a couple of lightweight boxes or something as heavy as a piano they won’t have a problem with loading it up on the back of their truck. Once your stuff is all loaded up, the Junk King crew will head out for more pickups. At the end of the day, they’ll be dropping off all the collected junk at the many recycling centers located throughout San Diego.
