The worst of winter is over, and spring is around the corner. The change in weather is a relief, but it brings with it the much-dreaded household task of spring cleaning. Whipping your home into shape seems like a momentous task but hiring a skip bin makes it easy to declutter your home, simplify your life and enjoy more space than ever before. Rather than dozens of trips to the rubbish dump or junkyard, you simple haul everything into your skip, and when you’re done, we’ll take it away! It’s time to hire a skip from speedy bins and get to work. Here are a few tips to help you along.
SET ASIDE TIME TO SPRING CLEAN
Spring cleaning is a group effort and takes time. Set aside a weekend (or more, depending on the size of your home) to clear up your house, garden and garage and enlist every family member to help.
DONATE WHAT YOU CAN
Clothing that doesn’t fit but is in good condition, toys your kids have outgrown, and books you’ve read can be donated to charity so someone in need can enjoy them. Make sure that whatever you donate is safe, functional and clean.
CREATE A TOSS PILE
Have every family member scour their room for toys, clothing, furniture or miscellaneous items that are damaged beyond repair or would be too expensive to fix. If there are items that you’ve placed in storage for future repairs and which you had forgotten about, get rid of them too. It’s difficult to part with items like this, but letting go of them will be a relief.
UPDATE YOUR KITCHEN
Are you using every item in your kitchen? Use this opportunity to give your kitchen a much-needed spring clean by getting rid of warped, stained plastic items and replacing them with longer-lasting glass options – they’re far more eco-friendly. It’s also an excellent time to rid yourself of chipped and cracked dinnerware and containers that take up space and can’t be used.
UPDATE YOUR GARAGE
It’s good to give your garage a once over every year or so to see if you’ve accumulated anything you don’t need. Garages often end up filled with broken furniture, discarded newspapers, empty paint tins and broken tools. If an item is not being used and couldn’t be used by someone else, toss it.
