Hoarding is an action of holding on to things with a tight grip. One’s inability to discard the things they no longer need or haven’t utilized in a while can lead to junk accumulation. This junk accumulation becomes clutter in your basement, garage, attic and many times even your common living spaces.
There are many ways that hoarding can cause many issues in your home spaces. Accumulated furniture, boxes, and junk can lead to infestations from rodents, insects, as well as home safety concerns. Too much junk in your basement can create fires while clutter in your garage can reduce parking area inside. Trash build up inside your common living quarters can reduce comfort in the areas made for your family to have enjoyable times together.
When your home space is clutter free there can be a sense of peace inside. Your home will be airy. Breathing can improve without allergic reactions from the mites produced by your hoarded contents. Order will be restored enabling your family to move about safely without fear of tripping over junk in the floor. Overall mental well being can improve when your home is in order. Remember cleanliness is next to godliness.
Tips For Avoiding Hoarding
You can avoid your home from becoming a hoarding site by getting out of the habit of holding on to everything for dear life. Periodically evaluate your storage areas of its contents. Determine if the things you are storing are absolutely necessary. Good rule of thumb is, if you haven’t used an item in the past few years you probably won’t use it.
After you have decided on which items that you no longer need you can then find a new home for them. Gift them to a friend, a family member or a donation center such as Goodwill. Habitat for Humanity is another local donation center that accepts donations. Some also sell their unwanted goods on Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace for extra cash.
