6 Tips to Prevent Hoarding

Do you feel like you’re starting to accumulate too many stuff in your home and not all of them are useful or have value? Then you may have yourself clutter, or worse, the beginnings of a hoarder’s collection. Hoarders usually don’t know how their behavior started but it undoubtedly began by keeping things that should have been thrown away.

Don’t wait until it’s too late! Check out these 6 tips to stop hoarding before it even begins:
  1. Go through one small space each week and sort out what to toss.
  2. Take the time to make the decision but handle the item only once.
  3. Scale down your collections and choose to save about 1 or 2 and rid of the rest.
  4. Put the items in a box for 6 months and if the box remains unopened before then, you can let it go without regret.
  5. Simply get rid of unused items. Resist the urge to buy things you’re not certain you will use.
  6. Consider consigning or donating so you know items end up in good hands.

I am so impressed with the job that Gregg and Karen did for my aunt's home. Not only did they take the time to explain thorougly what they were going to do, but they did EXACTLY as they promised.

We never expected to get the sales price for the house that we ended up getting. If you had seen my aunt's home before they started, you would know why. By the time the job was done, the house looked totally transformed.

Needless to say... I highly recommend their services!
