Fall is here and that means two things: Football and Fall cleanup! That’s right, home experts say that Fall rivals Spring as prime cleanup season, so here are some tips to ensure a winning effort.

Pre-Game Preparation

Determine exactly what items you want to get rid of. Start with one room. Do not proceed to the next room until you have determined what you don’t need. Decide what you really use and what is just taking up space.

First Down

Once you’ve decided which items you don’t need, determine what to do with them. You probably have one or more pieces of furniture you don’t want. If you don’t know anyone local who needs them, you can ship large items to a friend or relative in another state—or even better, make some money by selling them on eBay.

Second Down

Don’t drop the ball by paying a full-load mover for furniture or other large pieces—instead contact a small move specialist like TSI (http://www.transitsystems.com). Small move specialists will move a single sofa or a room full of furniture a lot cheaper than a full-load mover. (They combine pickups from a given area and transport multiple shipments on one truck to reduce your cost.). With a small move specialist, you get full service including inside pickup and delivery, but you pay less.

Third Down

You can box items smaller items like knick knacks, clothing, books and even sports equipment, then ship them cheaply by freight service. Get rid of anything that you have not used or worn in the last two years. Give someone else an opportunity to enjoy them.

Touchdown!

Once you’ve organized everything and gotten rid of the clutter, you can now sit back, relax and enjoy the season—in a house clutter-free!
