Decluttering Your Home After Moving to Jacksonville

If you’re anything like the All My Sons Jacksonville movers, you’re not a fan of clutter. Dealing with a crowded, cluttered space after moving is a daunting task and frankly, not a fun project to tackle. You’ve more than likely figured out that the moving process involves a lot of work and decluttering is more of the same. When you’re mentally and physically exhausted, the last thing you want to do is more work. Fortunately, these tips should allow you to get your home in order without it being too much of a burden.



Get Organized

The best way to organize your home and free it of clutter is to do the same with your mind. Knowing your goal and establishing a plan of how to get there can make the decluttering process move much more smoothly. Begin with a single area of your home, and work from there. When you can visually see things becoming clearer, your mind tells yourself that what you’re doing is working and you’ll feel more encouraged to continue.


Begin as Soon as Possible

Things aren’t just going to clean themselves up. You can throw a sheet over it, close your eyes, and stick your hand in the sand. The same mess will still be there when you resurface. Don’t procrastinate. Just get up and get it done. The sooner you begin, the sooner you will be able to settle into a home that feels like a home.


Get Some Help

No one said that the decluttering process would be easy. In fact, it’s pretty much a “clear your day” kind of thing. That’s why it’s recommended to get some assistance. When you use All My Sons Jacksonville packing service, we will help you unpack and set up your new home, allowing you the chance to focus on things that you’d prefer doing.

Alternatively, you can always just call your friends and family and ask them to help you get things together. In that scenario, it doesn’t necessarily have to feel like work. Put some music on, get some snacks and everyone can collaborate on the project. 


Start Small

Don’t force yourself to try to take down the mountain all at once. Begin decluttering your home with the easy stuff first. For instance, if you have a ton of paperwork lying around after moving, then start organizing the simplest of them, such as junk mail or receipts. Work your way up from there and you’ll be much happier with your progress.


Take Advantage of Affordable Moving and Storage Options

Sometimes you can’t find the space at the moment to keep things. When that happens, consider renting a climate controlled storage unit. Decluttering isn’t just about putting things away perfectly or even permanently. It’s about creating a space that allows you to function to the best of your abilities. Sometimes that means putting things away until you have a chance to get to it later.
