How to Know When to Get Rid of Stuff

Every year it pops in our head that we need to get rid of things in our home. The problem is it can be hard to know whether to throw something away or not. Whether you fight sentimentality, that you think you’ll use it someday, or you don’t know why you can’t part with it, we will help you figure out if it really should be thrown away. Goodwyn Building understands how easy it can be to allow clutter and unused items to pile up over the years. Our homes are built with plenty of room and space to make sure everything you have has a place. Here is how you know whether you should keep something or throw it away!

The first thing that you must ask yourself is: when is the last time I used it? Generally, if you haven’t used it in the last 6 months then it needs to go. This can be very difficult though if you’re a sentimental person. You tend to want to keep most things because this person or that person gave that item to you. However, when it comes to this rule, you need to stick to it or you’ll end up keeping most things you never use. If you’re really in a tough spot about whether to get rid of it then sleep on it. Don’t make any rash decisions especially if your trash day is the following morning.

When you’ve woken up and you’re thinking about your trash pile, there are some tougher questions that you’ll need to ask yourself. If it is just something you feel you can’t part with, then keep it. But if you’re on the fence about it, then ask yourself if it is something that you really need or not. And if it is something you really need, then why haven’t you used in the last 6 months? As humans we can convince ourselves of almost anything. So, if you have convinced yourself that you need to keep it then keep track whether you use it in the next 6 months. If you haven’t used it in a year, then there is no reason for it to continue to take up space.

Goodwyn Building understands that a home needs to have a lot of space to be able to organize everything it takes to maintain a home. That is why we make sure to build homes that allow you to have plenty of space and areas that allow you to do just that. Take a look at the homes we have available today!
