How to Purge Before the Holidays

December 01 | by Greg Westfall

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and great food. But before enjoying that, you must get your house in order. This means purging all of the junk collected over the past year. If you're unsure how to do it, don't worry -- we're here to help! In this blog, we will discuss how you can most effectively clear your home of clutter before the holidays. Let's get started!

Step 1: Rent a Dumpster

The first step in purging your home before the holidays is to rent a dumpster. This will give you a place to put all of the items you no longer want or need. It's essential to choose a size that is appropriate for your needs. If you have many large items, you may need a dumpster like our 15-yard container.

Conversely, if you only have a few small things, you can get away with renting a smaller dumpster. VaVia Dumpster Rentals offers 10 and 15-yard containers conveniently sized for your home's driveway. The ordering process is simple. Visit our website or call our office today, and we can schedule a delivery.

Step 2: Sort Your Items

Once you have a rental dumpster, it's time to start sorting your items. You can do this by categories, such as clothing, toys, or kitchen items. Alternatively, you can go through each room of your house and sort as you go. Whatever method you choose, the goal is to eliminate anything you no longer need or want. This includes items that are broken or damaged beyond repair. Purging any expired food items from your pantry or fridge is also essential.

Step 3: Donate or Sell

As you sort through your items, you may come across some that you no longer need but are still in good condition. These items can be donated to a local charity or sold online. This is a great way to declutter your home while helping those in need.

Step 4: Dispose of Your Items

Once you have sorted your items, it's time to dispose of them. This is where your dumpster rental comes in handy! Simply load the dumpster with all the unwanted items, and we will take care of the rest! Once you finish purging, call our office, and a driver will pick up the dumpster as soon as possible.

If you follow these steps, you'll achieve a clutter-free home just in time for the holidays. So what are you waiting for? Get started today! If you need help, VaVia is always here to lend a hand. Contact us today to learn more about our services. We wish you all the best this holiday season!
