Struggling to figure out what to throw away? If you haven’t used it in the past 6 months (unless the item is seasonal like Christmas decorations, you more than likely do not need it) You may find yourself exaggerating how much you use the item, and underestimate how much space the item is actually taking up.

To help decide what you should throw away and what you should keep, ask yourself the following questions

    When did you last use it?
    How often do you use it?
    How expensive was it?
    How much space does it take up?
    Does it have sentimental value?

Although some of these items can only be disposed of in specific ways, or you can donate the items that are still in good condition, many of these items can easily be disposed of in a skip. When you undertake a massive tidy session in your home, considering hiring a skip to help make the process a lot easier and more convenient for you.
