Are you faced with the overwhelming task of cleaning out your family’s House or Estate?, please read on for helpful information and tips on how to go about this sometimes difficult & demanding Estate cleanout process.

 

Step 1: – READ this entire article twice.

Notes: Have a Garage sale ( Reality check) have you got the time? –  be prepared for a very long day of dickering with hundreds of people who only want to spend a few dollars. Tag sales are an obvious option but you will be  dealing with a lot of work to set it up and will the weather and your helpers cooperate?….

Step 2:Contact family and friends that will help you with your house cleanout, this is easier said then done, but make a list of the reliable help you will need and their availability.

Step 3: – Order a 20 yard dumpster.

Step 4:Begin the process...”house cleanout day” prepare to realize this may take an entire weekend or 2 weekends,  2 – 4 days if your REALLY Organized, or 2 weeks if your not.

Each situation is different, but for demonstration purposes let’s assume that your house is REALLY full of a lot of stuff, like packed full.. start by cleaning out one room that you will designate the “safe room” this should be a room on main level that is close to the front or back door. After its completely empty, then start to go through the rest of the house room by room and only FOCUS on what your keeping that is small, such has photos & valuables, small keepsakes and small furniture. Do not become overwhelmed by trying to move large furniture at this time and even if your not sure about small boxes of stuff that “might have” things your keeping, just pick it up and move it to the safe room to be checked later.

Step 5:Clothes – Take some contractor bags and go to each closet and start clearing them out, leave the clothes on the hangors that your not sure of, KEEP MOVING stay focused or you will not get this done, bag the rest, you can take all of the bags to goodwill or throw in dumpster, if its a second floor make a “safe area” that you will pile all of the bags of clothing into.

Step 6: Furniture – Get your colored stickers and Begin to assess the furniture, this requires a REALITY check, is it junk?, is a family heirloom?, is it donatable?, do not try to move any furniture at this time, just give it a once over reality check and then tag it with a multicolored sticker, 1 color sticker for “it goes to dumpster” – 1 sticker – “donations” –  and 1 sticker for “furniture your keeping”. Note: Most charities only take furniture they can resell, if its badly scuffed or scratched and/or broken or flimsy they will NOT take it, they do not take mattresses or sofa beds or couches with stains or rips…stay focused and remember your “trying to get this done” its time to get rid of this stuff.

Read next week, the next steps and watch “how to move furniture” and “how properly load a dumpster” and related estate cleanout videos

The power was off to the large estate, we were in the cold, dark & dusty attic , a voice bellowing from someplace below…”everything goes!”……we clamored over 100’s of boxes and bags of stuff that looked untouched for 50 years..wow we said..i think we need more help, the pull down stairs were adding an extra challenge, so like usual, we start throwing boxes down to the helpers who bring them down 3 flights to the trucks. Like we always do, we take a quick experienced glance in each box, there is always a telltale sign of the contents without emptying it out, treasures perhaps?, a lost envelope with cash or jewelry maybe?..not this time..Near the end of the day i handled some of the last few boxes, in the corner a tattered old box labeled “christmas stuff” ……
