Tips to a Decluttered Home
Decluttering your home is something that almost all of us struggle with. No matter how hard you try, your home just isn’t big enough to store all of your stuff. Some areas in particular are more problematic than others. Waste Solutions 123 knows clutter can become more of a problem than anything else, here is our guide on to deal with some of the most common storage problems you will run into.
More Clothes Than Closet
Many of our closets are overflowing with an assortment of pants, shirts, and jackets – much of which we will probably never wear again. But if purging your wardrobe is out of the question, there are ways to make everything fit. Cascading clothes hangers, such as the Wonder Hanger
, help you fit more stuff in your closet by maximizing vertical space.
When you come home from the grocery store, do you just stick your food wherever it will fit? If you don’t have a method of organization, not only will your food be hard to find, it could spoil quicker. Keep all raw meat and dairy products on the bottom shelf, this area is coldest so it will keep them fresh for longer. The door is the warmest area, so reserve it for items resistant to spoiling such as bottled water, condiments, and dressings.
For something that only gets used once per year, holiday items and create quite the headache when it comes to storage options. Tree ornaments can be kept in egg cartons, they are stackable, space-efficient and provide extra protection. String lights can also be a hassle; prevent them from becoming a tangled mess by wrapping them around a flat piece of cardboard. As far as wrapping paper goes, store your rolls upright in an unused garbage can.
Old Junk Overtaking Basement, Garage, Attic, Etc…
It happens to the best of us. What once started as a discarded item or two eventually becomes a mountain of junk that overtakes the entire basement, attic, garage, or shed.

If you can’t find the time to remove these items by yourself, you can always call a local junk removal company to help take the workload off your hands.
