How to Declutter Your House in Time for the Holidays

November 28, 2023 | 9pickup Donation Pickup Boca Raton FL

It’s almost time to deck the halls and spread holiday cheer with family and friends! This season can also mean trying to fit people in guest rooms that might’ve doubled as storage spaces throughout the year. We get it! At 9Pickup, we can help you free up the clutter and make space for your holiday festivities. 


Imagine a home where the clutter is minimal and the true spirit of the season can shine through. Here’s how you can get started. 


Start with a Plan

The key to a stress-free decluttering experience is to plan early. We know this is easier said than done, but trust us, you’ll breathe easier once you know your guests have room to be comfortable. We recommend setting aside a Saturday or a weeknight evening to comb through guest space. Map out which areas of your home you’ll need to evaluate. Make notes of which item types you’ll need to donate: furniture, clothes, miscellaneous items. At 9Pickup, we take all types of items, from furniture and appliances to clothing, home decor, computers, and so much more!


Identify Donatable Items

As you go through your belongings, sort out the items you no longer need or use. Consider donating furniture, clothing, toys, and household items in good condition. (Check out our website for ideas on what to look for!) For larger items, place a Post-It note on anything that needs to be donated. This will help you visually keep track of what space you’ll have to work with once the items are gone. Donating frees up space for hosting family and friends (and for new gifts). Plus, you’re donating to families who could use those items this holiday season!
