MOVING HOME? In this short blog I’m going to give you tips on how to declutter effectively before […]
Now that Halloween and Bonfire night are over and done with for another year, many people’s attention is turning to Christmas. There’s just so much to think about at this time of the year; food, presents, decorations, and in many people’s case, house guests.
Millions of families across the country will be welcoming friends, neighbours and family members into their home over the festive season. Of course, everyone wants their guests to be comfortable, but with several extra people in your home, things can start to feel a little crowded! Having a home that is clean and welcoming is of the upmost importance over Christmas, and there are several things that you can do, starting now, to ensure that you and your home are fully prepared for the festivities.
November is a good time to think about each room in your house and decide if there is any way that you could make it less cluttered. You might have unused pieces of furniture that are never used but you feel that you should hang on to, ornaments that do nothing to improve the style of your home, or soft furnishings that have seen better days.
Now is a great time to think about letting go of the things that you do not use, do not like, or do not add any beauty or function to your home. When your guests arrive in a couple of months time, trust us, you’ll be glad you removed the clutter to make way for the festivities!
Once you have selected the items that you feel you do not need and would like to get rid of, there are several options that you can choose from to dispose of them. Ebay is a great place to start; and by listing smaller items on auction sites such as these, you could even make a few pounds that you could put towards Christmas presents. For larger items that can’t be posted, Ebay allows you to offer sold items as pick up only too.
Your local charity shop will no doubt be very grateful to receive items that they can sell. It’s always nice to know that your junk could become someone else’s treasure, making much needed cash for a charity in the process.
Alternatively, you could consider hiring a house clearance company in Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster or Barnsley to do the lifting and shifting for you. They’ll also do their best to ensure that as many items as possible are reused or recycled, meaning that you can rest assured that you won’t be unnecessarily contributing to landfill sites.
