“My house is so cluttered, I don’t know where to begin!” If you’re overwhelmed and need a clean out, you’re not alone. We often avoid decluttering our homes by telling ourselves we just need to “get organized.” But the reality is you’ll never achieve peak organization if you don’t first get rid of what you don’t use.
Junk King of Sacramento offers comprehensive clean out services to get you started. Here are three quick ways to get a jump on a home clean out. The impact they make will inspire you to keep going until your house is back to its glorious pre-clutter days.
Clean Out Overview
1: Perform a Quick Sweep
This is a terrific way to get started. Grab several handled laundry baskets and/or sturdy boxes and use them in the rooms you want to clean out. Now’s not the time for a scattershot approach. Stick to one room until it’s cleared out. Throw anything that’s no longer needed or used into either a “sell” or “donate” container. Starting with the living room? Toss in pillows that have seen better days, knickknacks that are covered in dust, and old magazines and newspapers.
2: Tackle the Worst Room First
For most people, this is the attic, basement, or garage. You know, the out of sight, out of mind place where all unwanted objects go! Begin your deeper clean out in one of these areas for a quick psychological and aesthetic boost. The confidence you gain will carry you through the rest of the house.
3: Stay on Track
Remember, you’re decluttering, not organizing (yet)! Stick to the clean out task at hand and you’ll avoid feeling consumed by how much there is to do. It’s fine to tidy up a bit as you go, but organization can come later.

Make it a Habit
- We get it—they’re a lot of fun! But promotional freebies like water bottles, coffee mugs, tote bags, and key rings have a way of worming their way onto counters and into drawers. If you just can’t resist, promise yourself to donate the item to charity, where someone who really needs it can benefit.
- Avoid impulse purchases. Prepare a written or digital shopping list before heading out to shop. Purchasing online? Put the items in the cart but unless they’re needed immediately, wait a couple days before going back to checkout.
- Reduce paper mail, especially catalogs you’ll look at “one day.” There are online services that help you remove your name and address from mailing lists. And opt for paperless statements from utility companies, banks, and credit card companies.
- Follow the one-in, one-out, and the one-year rules for preventing clutter from building up. Donate or sell what you don’t need any more.
