Decluttering Your Home Ahead of the Holidays

Home 9 News 9 Decluttering Your Home Ahead of the Holidays

“Spring cleaning” doesn’t have to be the only time that you get rid of the unnecessary clutter in your home. In fact, the holidays may be one of the best times to get rid of junk. 

The holidays are a great time to declutter because it allows you to make room for any new items that you may receive as gifts. It also gives you the chance to ditch any holiday decor that doesn’t get used or is dated. Decluttering your home ahead of the holidays will also get your space looking clean and fresh in preparation for any holiday parties you may be hosting. 

Holiday season junk removal is no doubt a simple way to upgrade your space. But it can also help reduce anxiety, boost creativity, and help you get organized. 

Here are 3 ways that you can declutter to prepare for the holiday season.


The best place to start is with the space in your home that probably accumulates the most clutter — the closet. Start by taking out any clothes you haven’t worn in a year. Then move on to accessories, such as shoes, handbags, belts, etc. And if you have any linen closets, or other storage closets or garages, give those a good cleaning too! Making space in your closets will help you feel much more organized. (Plus, it makes room for that cheesy Christmas sweater you might receive as a gift this year!)


While it may be difficult to part with last year’s Christmas candy, decluttering your pantry cabinets is a necessity. Not only does it make more room for the food that you actually will eat, it can also keep away unwanted pests.


How much of your decor do you actually need? Whether you have too much holiday decor or an abundance of signs with inspirational quotes, there’s a good chance that some of it’s just taking up space.


Once you’ve compiled the junk in your home that you want to get rid of, it’s time to clear it away. Hiring a professional junk removal service can help make the process a lot easier. 

A good junk removal company, like Clear It Junk Removal, will be able to bring any unwanted clutter from your home to the correct facility – whether that be a recycling center, local dump or donation center.

So what are you waiting for? Start decluttering for the holiday season with these helpful tips!
