Out With The Old And In With The New

New Year, New Room, New Mind 

The holiday season is undoubtedly one of the best times of the year. It’s time to reflect on the year that is winding down, have some treasurable family time, and have fun – a lot of it. At the same time, however, it can also be one of the most stressful times.

Not only is there a lot to do as the year comes to an end, but you also want to remove any clutter to prepare yourself for the new year. The one problem is it can be hard to decide what items you want to keep and what you want to throw away. So, where should you start?

Christmas is also a time where you have a lot of new gifts. 

This makes it even more important to clear up space in your home. In this blog we will give you some house clearance tips to make it easier to remove unwanted items and create more storage space.

1. Van Transport

At Bellview Transport, we don’t just offer a man with a van. We have a friendly and expert team of removal experts. We can remove any items you don’t want and provide storage space as well. Our van transport service can take any stress away from you and allow you to focus on your home. 

2. Take a first pass at the clutter

Once the holiday rush is over, it may seem like the right time to relax. But what about all the clutter from the holiday season? To ensure that your home looks tidy again, the first thing you should do is light-clean your house, getting rid of the obvious clutter. If doing this is not possible at once, you can break down the project into smaller tasks.

3. Replace the old items

The Christmas presents you receive are the perfect motivation to get rid of the old items in your home. If you receive a couple of gifts that can replace a few old items, it’d be best that you get rid of the old and outdated items so that you can start using the newer items. If you are not emotionally attached to a certain item, it doesn’t make sense to keep it.

4. Move some stuff to storage

There are a couple of items that you may not need any more until the next holiday season. As such, this should be the perfect chance to move items such as holiday decorations to a storage unit. Just be sure to keep track of everything you pack away in boxes.

5. Make a decision on what to do with the unwanted gifts

Yes, you have received holiday gifts from people who matter a lot in your life. But what do you do if what you received is not something you need or want? Will you keep clutter around just because you don’t want to get rid of gifts from the people you value so much?

This should be the time to make a decision on what to do with such gifts. You can give them to charity or maybe even sell them depending on what they are. Just don’t think about re-gifting. It can be awkward and difficult.

In summary,

As you get ready to start a new year, there are several things you can do to ensure that your home is as organised as it can be. Just be sure to make a good plan and get some help where necessary for an easy house clearance process.
