Top 5 Reasons to Declutter Before the Winter Holidays

Halloween is just a few weeks away, and the temperature in our area is falling fast. While you’re thinking about the coming holidays, remember that now is the perfect time to do some decluttering around the house. Make some smart, clutter-eliminating changes today to have a more peaceful, enjoyable holiday season. Here are the top five ways that decluttering now will make the coming winter better for you.

Save Money on Heating Bills
When vents are blocked, the air cannot move through the room. Your furnace struggles, and it runs longer as it tries to compensate for the lack of air flow. Utility bills are high enough already, but you can bring yours down by eliminating some junk and ensuring that the air can move through your home. Save the extra cash or apply it to those other seasonal bills.

Have Fun with Guests
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and your family is already asking who’s going to host the turkey meal this year. In the past you may have avoided eye contact or vocally said that your house was out, but that doesn’t have to be the case. If clutter has been preventing you from entertaining, then it’s time to make a change. Get rid of the extra stuff so that you’ll have more room for guests and the sweet potato pie.

Make Decorating Easy
Putting out the wreaths or lights is hard when every flat surface is cluttered with other junk. Make the process more fun by eliminating the unnecessary things now. You’ll find that decorating is easy and enjoyable when you can simply put your decorations out and start enjoying them. With less stuff competing for your attention, you’ll also allow your favorite seasonal items to really steal the show.

Get Organized for Next Year
While bringing out the decoration is a blast, putting them away is a dreaded chore. It’s even harder when your attic is full and the seasonal bins are full of stuff you don’t use. Get things in order this year by purging the old items out of the attic and other storage areas. As you unpack the decorations, donate or toss the items that you no longer love or use. With the goods in storage pared down, it will be easier to effectively pack everything up and get it put away at the end of this season.

Stress-Free Holiday Activities
Baking up a great pie or a batch of cookies is a major chore when your kitchen is overcrowded with unnecessary stuff. But it can be a blast when you’re able to see the counters and get to all your goodies.  You can craft with the kids, host an ornament exchange, or bring in the family members to light the Chanukah lights with confidence when the clutter is out of the house.


Winter is coming, and now is the time to start getting your home in order. By decluttering, you can make your house warm, visually appealing, and welcoming. If you’re dealing with larger items or just want to see the decluttering process done in record time, then call JDog to see how we can assist you.
