This summer has not been one to disappoint. The days have been long and the weather has been warm and bright. I know there are a lot of you that have made trips to get away from your home as you have been stuck in your homes for the last few months. Getting out is great, just remember to wear your masks, keep hand sanitizer handy and always keep your distance from people you are not normally around on a daily basis. Now that we are getting close to the colder months of the year some of you are thinking of how you are going to keep things lively at home once you’re stuck inside again. Why not create that game room your kids have been asking for? What about that reading room you have seen on pinterest? Maybe you’re the movie type and want your own theatre room. Maybe you’re that homeowner that has no children and would like a drinking room, like a little mini bar within your home. We can even build that outdoor living space to be heated so you can hang out on it year round. We will build your dreams. Give us a call for your remodeling project 425-224-2004.

It’s been a crazy year, and if recent events have put your hoarding habits into overdrive, well, you’d be forgiven. After a weird spring and even weirder summer, you’re not the only one who’s been compiling random stacks of stuff “just in case.”
Takeout containers, Amazon boxes, used paper masks, and even wooden chopsticks are among the offenders that have taken up seemingly permanent residency in our homes.
That’s why we spoke with home organization and tiny-living experts from all over the country to bring you this list of things that it’s time to ditch. If you’re ready to say buh-bye to your apocalypse stockpile, here are eight things to toss, for the ultimate pandemic purge.
“Going through clothing before each season creates awareness of the items you already own, but may have forgotten,” says home organizer Katie Barton, of Cabin Lane. “Trash any clothing that has holes or stains and sell or donate the rest.”
If you have a lot to get rid of, Barton says she’s had great success selling clothing in “bundles” through Facebook Marketplace or in local consignment shops.
Sell or donate: Sell your unwanted clothes online, or find the nearest drop box to donate them.
Excess Canned Goods
With grocery stores mostly back to full stock, it’s time to get rid of those extra canned goods you’ve been storing these past few months – especially the expired or unappetizing ones (we see you, store-brand SpaghettiOs).
“Your pantry is probably looking a bit in need of help right now,” says Jen Breitegan, owner of Organizenvy.
“How many cans of crushed pineapple or kidney beans do you have left? I’m betting quite a few. Be honest about the canned and boxed items you bought in a panic but your family didn’t eat, and then donate them to local food banks”.
Donate: Find your closest food bank with Feeding America.
All the Takeout Freebies
“I’ve heard of people hoarding paper napkins and plastic utensils they receive takeout orders,” says Breitegan. “Again, be honest about how many sets of chopsticks your family really needs, and see if you can cut your stash by at least half.”
Recycle: Free up some of your cabinet space by recycling any takeout extras you (realistically) won’t ever need.
“Books take up a lot of space, and can start to smell and leave a musty scent in a room if left for too long,”says Christine Wilcox of LettingGoLivingMore.
“I love the feel of a real book in my hand, but I only keep those that are really important to me. Everything else goes to the thrift shop for someone else to enjoy.”
Donate: Go through your book collection and put together a box of donation to your local library or favorite (used) bookseller.
“If you’ve been able to leave the house to play a sport and still haven’t done so, maybe it’s time to accept that the dusty tennis racket is never going to get used,” says Wilcox. “Sell old sporting equipment or donate to a local school and use the space for the new hobbies in your life.”
Sell or donate: Post your stuff on Facebook Marketplace to sell, or consider making a donation to your local youth center or school.
“Throw out the things that don’t work, so that you know what needs to be replaced. This is also a good rainy-day activity for kids.”
Trash: Do yourself (and little ones) a favor by purging any busted office and art supplies, and free up some home office space in time for the school year ahead.
“Go through old makeup, especially anything that’s expired,” says Lindsey Maxwell, co-founder at Where You Make It. “You might not want to waste it, but using expired makeup could cause breakouts and other skin issues.”
Recycle: Pull out your old makeup and cosmetics, and then send those little plastic tubs straight to the recycling bin.
“It may seem wasteful to throw away perfectly good boxes, but as they collect, infestation can occur,” says Leanne Stapf, chief operating office for The Cleaning Authority. “Mice, bed bugs, and even raccoons can find their way to any appealing pile of trash, turning your garage into their home.”
Recycle: take all those empty boxes and throw them into the recycling bin ASAP!
