Gut Your Home Out in Under a Day: My Tips

Gutting your home out is a very big job. Whether you’re doing it because you’re renovating, or simply because you have a lot of clutter, the idea of it can be daunting. It can take some people days to gut out their homes. Not with this guide! With these tips, you’ll be able to gut your home out in under a day. Take a look:

Start Early

Start as early as you possibly can so you can get as much done as possible. You can’t start later on in the day and expect to get everything done. It’ll get dark, you’ll get tired, and people who have agreed to help you will get fed up. Arrange a really early time to start and you’ll get so much more done.

Decide What to Throw/Sell/Give Away

You don’t have to throw everything away. Make a few different piles. Have a pile of things to throw away, a pile of things to sell, and a pile of things to give away. Giving away and selling things you don’t want is better for the environment, and you should get a sense of well being too.

Have Everything Ready to Bag Up

Have bags with you ready to bag things up once you’ve decided what to do with them. And don’t get things mixed up! If you have a lot to get rid of, you’re going to need a team to help you get rid of it all. You can find out more on a site like http://www.solo.com.au. You won’t be able to get rid of it all yourself in under a day, so take some of the hassle out of it by hiring a professional company.

Put on a Fast Paced Playlist

Having a fast paced playlist on will make the work feel more fun than anything. It’ll keep you motivated, spirits high and working as fast as possible. Listening to slow songs will only slow you down in the long run. Just don’t stop for too long to sing - you have serious work to do! You’ll feel like a real domestic goddess once you’ve got a good pace going.

Ask for Help if You Need it

If you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for it. Your family and friends should be more than happy to give you a hand and save you some time. Offer them food and drinks to keep them going as a reward. You’ll all get things done so much quicker as a team.

Time Yourself

Time yourself to make the whole thing like a game. How long can you do one room in? Can you do the next one a bit quicker? You’ll love beating your records!
