Most clients that contact us do so because they don’t feel that they can reduce the clutter in their lives themselves. They call us for assistance. After speaking to many of them we’ve learned that there are several major obstacles that prevent people from downsizing.
You don’t know where to start
This is the biggest reason why you call us. Clutter has a way of growing unless you have a system in place to deal with it. Before you know it you have so much clutter you just don’t know where, or how, to start. That’s where we come in. We know where to start, how to start and how to leave you with an efficient and functional system to easily manage things after we’ve gone.
Your things still have a lot of value
Sure, some things still do have value, but that doesn’t mean you have to keep it just for the value. We would never make you get rid of anything that has value (monetary or sentimental) to you. You make all the decisions. We do however, provide you with a list of contacts that can sell items for you or take them on consignment. We’re also partnered with a number of charities in the GTA that will enhance the lives of someone less fortunate with your used items.
You think you will need it someday
Maybe you will but the odds are really stacked against you. As the artist CCR once sang, someday never comes. If the day ever really did come, chances are the item would be out of date, out of fashion or damaged from being improperly stored. If you haven’t used it in over a year, it’s time to take a real hard look at whether you really need it taking up your valuable real estate..
But it used to belong to ……
Items can hold a special place in your heart and remind you of a loved one. At ClutterBGone we know this and treat you and your items with the respect they deserve. For the items you really just can’t part with we know how to store them so they stay in good shape for years to come. We also know ways to display those really special pieces so you can enjoy them every day. We believe you should surround yourself with things that you love!
You believe you’ll fit into this later
I don’t want to be the one to rain on your parade here but will you really fit into it later? Are you actively working towards weight loss or are you simply “hoping” to lose some inches.
We all would like to lose a couple of inches but realistically it gets harder to lose weight as you age. If you do end up losing that weight, congratulations! Now go out and buy yourself something fresh, new and flattering to celebrate.
These are the major obstacles in the way of a clutter free life. Do you recognize any of them? If any of these obstacles, or others, are stopping you from enjoying a clutter free space contact us here. We would love to have a chat and get the ball rolling for you.
