Top Tips for Homeowners

As a homeowner you know how quickly stuff just seems to accumulate in your home. No matter what you try and do, you just can’t keep things from stacking up. At least that’s how a lot of people feel about their houses.

That doesn’t mean you’re doomed to live in a pile of your own clutter forever! There are ways out. Use this guide to help you start clearing the clutter today, whether you’ve just got a little or you have a whole house full. 

Start Outside 

Many homeowners make the mistake of beginning to clear clutter in their home first when they should be focusing on the outside. After all, it’s what people see first, and in most cases, you can get rid of outdoor clutter very quickly since you’re likely not attached to the items.

Start with items like junk cars that you can actually get some cash from. You could hire a towing company to get rid of your cars, but many will pay you to for scrap and for parts. 

Get a few quotes and you’ll have extra cash and a little bit more space in your front yard and driveway area. 

Donate Items

Once you start cleaning in the house you’ll likely find things like clothes, shoes books and electronics you don’t wear or use anymore. Those are best donated to charities for people who really need them.

Best of all, they will give you a receipt and you can use your donation as a tax deduction!
