Spring means warmer weather but it’s not necessarily the greatest of conditions. Rain and chilly winds can turn much of the spring season into a gloomy experience that drives you indoors. Instead of tapping your foot waiting for summer to pop up, take advantage of this dreary time to get a jump on cleaning. Not only can renting a dumpster keep you on track, it will help you finish those projects early so you can be out enjoying yourself instead of trapped inside.
COMMITTED – When you rent a a dumpster, you are officially committed to finishing whatever you set about to do. Why? Because you are paying for that time and if you go over your initial rental period, you could be charged another rental fee. It’s true that time is money and you need to make the most of your dumpster rental while you have it. Knowing you have money on the line keeps you motivated to fill it and get it out of there quickly.
Considering that a dumpster rental is a large, steel box, it definitely sticks out on your driveway or in front of your house. That alone may motivate you to fill it fast because the longer it sits, the more of an eyesore it can become for you and your neighbors. Quick rentals are great but having a dumpster in front of your home for a month can irritate your village and block mates.
NO TURNING BACK – When a person sets about organizing their living space, they usually make piles such as what to keep, what to toss, what to donate, etc. The unfortunate part of this process is that it is all too easy for you to second guess yourself and take objects out to keep. Once you toss something into the dumpster, it becomes harder to retrieve and more likely for you to be able to separate yourself from. If you rented a dumpster, you likely need to get rid of something.
Rule Of Thumb – If it holds no collectible or sentimental value and you haven’t used it in a year, it needs to go.
Believe it or not, you CAN’T take it with you.
THE PROCESS – It becomes so much easier to finish your tasks if you set a pre-determined process in place and stick to it.
- Remove – Take everything out of the space you are needing to clean. Whether it’s attic, garage or main rooms of your home, take it all out. While everything is out, this is the PERFECT opportunity to deep clean the space.
- Sort – This is when you make your piles and decide what needs to go. Do you need 80 shirts? Are 15 hammers really necessary? Paring down can be difficult but it’s important so you can enjoy better peace of mind. Clutter can distract and irritate your mind so having space to move and breathe without feeling chained to junk is critical.
- Organize – Once you toss out the junk and begin to put items back into a space, focus on organizing. Properly labeled storage containers, hidden or built-in storage and a thorough, easy-to-navigate grid for items can keep you better organized for the future.
Of course, the greatest satisfaction you will receive from renting a dumpster now is that you will have cleaned out your living space and given yourself a fresh slate. Another small satisfaction is that while you are lounging in your front yard or playing baseball with the kids and enjoying the weather, your neighbors will likely be sweating and struggling as they start their cleaning projects!
