What to Do with the Stuff “Stuffed” into the Corners of Your House

“A house is just a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get more stuff.” That memorable quote from comedian George Carlin is an interesting one when you think about moving time. What will you do with all that stuff? Give it away? Trade it? Sell it? Junk it? Or take it with you?

We found this usefulGet Organized Wizard blog by Michele Connally that creates (what else?) an organized progression of the steps to take. Her opening line says it all:

Anything that doesn’t serve you, doesn’t earn a place in your life.

Shoes you don’t wear. An old lamp or toaster that you don’t use, sitting in the closet “just in case.” Faded shutters in the basement. Beat up metal trash cans in the corner of the garage.

The blog breaks down your classification of actions into three categories:

  • When To Sell Your Clutter
  • When To Donate Your Clutter
  • When To Throw Away Your Clutter

At OC Junk Hauling we are ready to help in the 2nd& 3rd areas. Each year, Americans generate between 250 and 400 million tons of garbage — all of which requires landfill space. But it doesn’t have to go to landfills.

We have mentioned before a process we use called upcycling.

  • a dresser could be repurposed into an antique bathroom vanity.
  • shutters could be turned into sofa table tops or headboards.
  • galvanized metal trash cans could be converted into planters for flowers.

We upcycle/donate/recycle/reuse approximately 85% of the materials we remove. This helps us provide our clients with the best prices while at the same time keeping Orange County clean & beautiful.

Give OC Junk Hauling a call at (949)424-9265 and one of our friendly staff will book your appointment for a free visit. At your home, we will evaluate items to be removed and provide a no-obligation estimate. Then you sit back and relax as we do all the work of moving your stuff out of your house and to someone else who will be served by it.

Among the past recipients of our deliveries are Human Options, Illumination Foundation, Laura’s House and Goodwill Industries.
