3 reasons you should clear the clutter from your home

3 reasons you should clear the clutter from your homeIs your home beginning to resemble a landfill site? Whether it’s shoes and clothes, kids’ toys, ornaments, furniture or other odds and ends, it’s easy for the clutter to build up and get out of hand. However, while spending our weekends and evenings cleaning up might be the last thing on our to-do-list, it can have some hidden benefits.

1 – Turn a profit
They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure and there’s only one way to find out of it’s true. Root through your belongings and you might be surprised at the value of what you find. Write down a list of all the items that you are considering throwing away and then get to work. Long gone are the days when you had to suffer the cold, early morning starts of car boot sales; now you can now easily sell all your unwanted goods on the internet. Thanks to websites like eBay and Pre-Loved, as well as so-called ‘selling groups’ on Facebook, it’s quite easy to offload your wares to the people in your neighbourhood.

2 – Finding forgotten treasures
The second reason that you should be pulling on the marigolds is that you never know what you might find. It’s easy to lose track of what we purchase over the years and behind sofas and underneath beds there is a whole world of phone chargers, cables, clothes, toys and other forgotten objects. Who knows what you might find, and it may even save you some money down the line.

3 – Helping others
Another good reason to clear the clutter is to help others. Whether it’s people in your local community or friends and family in need of some help, there is always someone that could benefit from your unwanted belongings. Some of your items can easily be gifted off through recycling bins, taken to charity shops or given away on ‘Freecycle’ groups on Facebook.

Final thoughts
While the internet and charity shops can provide a good outlet for some of your unwanted items, there are plenty of items which we just can’t seem to give away. Electrical goods, missing cables, clothes and toys beyond repair or awkwardly shaped pieces of furniture. If that’s the case, then the best option for you is to consider a skip.

Here at LSPS, all the waste that we collect is taken to our own waste transfer station so that it can be processed ready for recycling or energy generation. To find out more or to book your skip, please contact us on 0800 083 7807, or visit our website for further information.
