Spring Cleaning Tips

Updated: Monday, April 8 2013, 08:07 AM EDT
The return of Spring over the weekend has a lot of people thinking about tackling Spring Cleaning.

David Pennebaker, owner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, says people start calling this time of year because they realize that "stuff" piled up over the winter.

Also, spring and summer are traditional moving seasons.  

He says we end up with items that fall into one of four categories: items to donate, items to recycle,  items to throw away, and items to keep.

Pennebaker has a few tips for clearing out the clutter:

  • stop putting it off
  • have a plan for where you will take the items to donate and recycle
  • create a staging area to sort items into categories.
  • organize the "keep" pile so you won't end up feeling cluttered even after you have gotten rid of the items in the other categories
