Basement Cleanout Tips For A Clutter-Free Basement

January 26, 2022 Published by

The basement is one of the most cluttered areas in the house as it serves as an easy storage space for all seasonal items, old clothes, holiday décor items, old toys, and unfinished projects. Many items probably need to go but might have sentimental value and memories attached to them. In this blog, we’ll discuss basement cleanout tips and strategies to purge your basement of clutter and reclaim your space.

  1. Make a Schedule: Schedule enough time to clean out the basement. Maybe this weekend is the perfect time to get it done? Either way, make sure that you’ve cleared a couple of days to do the work. We recommend setting a realistic deadline to work. This will help you in minimizing stress and make the best use of your time.
  2. Sort Your Inventory: Depending upon when you last used a particular item, we recommend sorting your inventory in three separate boxes that represent the following categories:
    1. Keep
    2. Donate/Sell
    3. Dispose
  3. Set a Pre-defined Area: Choose any corner of the basement to start from. Go through all the contents and accordingly add them into any of the three categories defined above. Continue working through other areas of the basement until every item is categorized and placed into its designated box.
  4. Organize: Once everything is categorized, you get a clear space. Put your creativity to work and plan a new way to organize your things. You can invest in clear storage bins or racks for easy identification of contents. You can also try out color-coding, using dividers, ceiling racks, etc. to make your space look more organized. Customize your space to the best of your abilities to make the most of every inch.

Once you have organized everything, you’ll have a lot of clutter to donate/sell and dispose of. You can sell items online on various websites such as Craigslist, Face marketplace, eBay, etc. Stuff that needs to be donated needs to be taken to the nearby donation center or be scheduled for a pick up. Disposal is the last step and you can rely on local junk removal services offered by municipal authorities. Alternatively, you can also rely on professional junk haulers that offer quality doorstep junk removal services.
