It’s almost time. The busy Christmas period and the exciting news years has passed. While we breathe a sign of relief that we’ve survived everything once again for another year, it’s now time to take care of the kids.

With the official back to school date fast approaching, it’s important we get the household junk problem sorted once again. Things like toys, wrappers, unused books and stationary all need to be either thrown out or donated to charity.

Depending on the size of your household this decluttering process may either take you a few hours or a few days. It’s vital that you start planning immediately so that once the kids are back to school, you can get started on the decluttering instantly. The faster you give the house a once-over clean, the happier you’ll be in the long-run.

After all, it’s a new year, and with a new year comes a new me!

Let’s get started with the common items we can start disposing of or donating.

Books & Stationary

We know that some parents love to store away old books from our child’s previous years for memories. It’s a good way to show how far they’ve come when we finally bring them back out to show them ten years later.

However, if you’re finding that heaps of their school books and stationary are either too damaged to reuse or even store, then it’s probably better you pile them all up and have them disposed of.

Things such as severely worn and damaged backpacks and lunch boxes are common back to school items you can dispose of quite easily to free your house of valuable space.

Electronics & Toys

This is probably going to be the most common form of junk after the Christmas period. We receive heaps of exciting presents leading up to Christmas, however, we ultimately come to the realisation that most things received we’ll never ever use.

If you notice that your kids have heaps of broken toys or things they’ll never touch again, either dispose of them or donate them. Don’t let it become a habit of storing junk in the garage which will never be of any use in the future. Decluttering old children’s toys and broken electronics is key to keeping your house clutter-free and clean in this modern day.

Bedding, Clothing & Accessories

Much like toys, clothing is often a common gift our kids receive during Christmas. If you’re finding that your kids are fast outgrowing many of their shirts, pants or shoes or that most have suffered significant wear and tear, then it may be a good idea to dispose or donate them.

With back to school fast approaching, you’ll need to free up valuable space in the closet to be able to refill their school uniforms. Start planning ahead early and don’t let this become an ongoing problem.
