Tips From An Organized Mind
Important Information About Clearing
When someone is moving, or has moved, most of the time there are many items that are no longer wanted or needed. Things that people don’t want to bring to their new home. Things that family and friends don’t want either.
Anyone who has moved knows (or should know) that the house, whether owned or rented, has to be “cleared” before the new owners/renters take possession.
“Clearing” a property means that the house/premises have to be COMPLETELY clear. Every cabinet, cupboard, closet, drawer and room has to be empty! More importantly, there is usually a dead-line as to when the house/premises has to be empty (ie, close of escrow).
So, what do you do with the things that you no longer need or want?
The obvious answer is to donate or try to sell those items that are no longer wanted or needed. Unfortunately some of those items can’t be sold or donated either. Here’s a short list of some items that can’t (or shouldn’t) be donated:
-Anything that is stained/soiled
-Things that are broken or missing pieces
Those items that can’t be donated are deemed trash. Obviously you can throw those things in the trash. But:
1. What if there is so much trash that it won’t all fit in the trash bins?
2. What if there are certain items that are so big (think mattress) that they can’t fit in the trash?
3. What if it’s too big or too heavy and you can’t get it to the trash?
All good questions!
The answer is… call us for help. Organizing Concepts and Designs will facilitate the entire process and make sure that the premises are completely empty and we will do timely. We work with a multitude of resources to make sure that the house will be completely clear in time for the keys to be turned over to the new owners/renters. Some of our resources are:
1. Donation companies
2. Trash removal/hauling companies
3. Shredding Companies
4. Consignment Stores
5. Auction Houses
6. Art Dealers
7. Cleaning Services
*NOTE: It is important to know that clearing and cleaning are entirely different. Clearing is making sure the house is empty. Cleaning is making sure the house is clean.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Dina. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
After working as a Legal Assistant/Office Manager for 30 years I decided to start an Organizing business. I wanted to take the skills and experience that I acquired while working in the legal industry and my natural organizational talents to help others get organized or better organized, as the case may be. Organizing Concepts and Designs, aka OCD, has given me a positive and powerful way to channel my OCD tendencies. Our services include Residential Organizing, Office Organizing, Relocations and Estate Sales. Organizing Concepts and Designs has 5 Star ratings with Yelp, GoogleMyBusiness, Angie’s List and Thumbtack.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
For the most part, my journey has been smooth. While there’s always bumps in the road, I’ve learned how to navigate them by learning from the experience. I find that the hardest thing is keeping up with technology and social media. That said, I know that the only way to stay relevant is to keep learning and doing my best to keep up with the latest trends.
