Got Junk?

This week, we’ve been focused on reaching out  to junk removal businesses. The junk removal business fascinates me for some reason. Maybe it’s because I think junk removal people are savvy little sleepers when it comes to business. They act quickly and seize opportunity. They do what many won’t and turn junk into gold. Seems that other small businesses could take a cue or two from them. Winking smile


I recall during my last move all the “stuff” I had which was quickly labeled as junk. Where I was moving I had to limit what I took and the rest went to storage. Going through it, I realized just how much I carried with me from place to place for years. It was hard to recall why I ever had some of in the first place, let alone why I was moving it again. Maybe it’s age, maybe just trying to simplify things;  whatever, but it’s liberating to be released of things, of baggage, of junk. The interesting thing is that you never really regret or miss your junk, yet prior to getting rid of it, you couldn’t let go of it and were very attached to it.  No worries though because quickly old junk is replaced with new junk and we go through the process again. The key is to learn what is necessary, what is a jewel and what is junk. On the positive of course, all that stuff can be of good use to lots of other people.

So got junk? In your home? In your car? At work? In your business? On your desk? In your purse? In your heart? In your head? In a relationship? On a shelf?  Get rid of it and this time for good.

  12. I purge and get rid of junk on a regular basis. It makes me feel good to clear the clutter. I donate things, repurpose them, recycle them and trash what can’t be re-used by someone else.

    In my work with clients, I often start with a desk/office purge. Although people are sometimes hesitant/resistant, by the time we get going and they see their beautifully organized workspace, they’re scratching their heads saying, “Now why didn’t I do this before?” Cheers! Kaarina

    • Kaarina! I love you more and more … a woman after my own heart! I am quite the organized one and it can drive others to madness. I love, love, to give stuff away, trash, or whatever … it’s so liberating. I will say I’ve had a regret here or there because I’m often too enthusiastic about the process. I’ve become a tad better saving everything from Eve though! ;)

      We need more organizers in the world I think!

      So happy you stopped by!

      Goodness to you my friend,
