Junk Removal for Back to School
With the kids heading back to school, parents can take advantage of the peace and quiet that comes when the littles are in the classroom. In other words, getting organized is much easier without the painstaking negotiation of junk removal as kids plead their reasons for holding on to toys, equipment, or clothes they haven’t used for months or years.
So, with an empty home and some time on your hands, the 24 Hour Junk Team brings you some tips for getting organized now that school is in session.
In with the New Means Out with the Old
Kids grow and change in size and interests. Despite the strongest sentimental attachments, the things they played with in the past are becoming obsolete, their clothes don’t fit, and equipment from forgotten pastimes collects dust. Obviously, this means that some items absolutely need to go. Get organized by breaking the task down into manageable parts – you can go room by room, or you can organize yourself thematically. And start by making piles of things to keep and things to junk. Here are some tips to get you started:
- Clothes – sort through your children’s closets and drawers and identify items that you need to keep and those that need to go. Separate which items you may want to hand down in your family, which items can still be worn because they fit AND suit your kid’s current tastes, and which items are now a thing of the past. After that, call the 24 Hour Junk Team; we can remove old clothing and distribute them appropriately. Some items will be great for thrift stores or donation and many textiles can be recycled. Our team is dedicated to reducing our global environmental impact so we make sure that not everything just goes to landfill.
- Equipment – Did your kid love lacrosse last year but hasn’t picked up the stick in months? Have your children outgrown their baseball gloves or cleats? Whatever the case, you can make a huge impact on the clutter in your home by removing equipment that doesn’t get used, doesn’t fit, or doesn’t work anymore and the 24 Hour Junk Team will haul it away. Even musical instruments, outdoor gear, and other hobby items can find new homes with underprivileged children and our team wants to help.
- School Supplies – Old notebooks, craft supplies, calculators, and reading materials can pile up around the home. If you enter your kids’ rooms and find lightly used school supplies that are no longer relevant for their age, the 24 Hour Junk Team will assist you in reusing these items by delivering them to the most appropriate locations including thrift stores and donation centres. Old supplies that have served their time can be recycled or brought to landfill and our team can manage organizing delivery of your junk appropriately – all you need to do is decide what you want to keep and what needs to go!
Getting organized for back to school can not only help you create a healthier and cleaner environment in your own home, but it can also contribute to improved quality of life for less privileged kids in your community.
