AtticMaxx Hosts “Organize Your Attic” Challenge During National Get Organized Month

Develop a system for moving items into boxes / stacks KEEP, TRASH / RECYCLE and DONATE

Often in attics there are boxes of late decisions and boxes full of treasures, including your great-grandmother’s silver or baby clothes that your college senior once wore.

Homeowners contemplating the daunting task of tidying their attic will find the encouragement and guidance they need to get their jobs done by reading the AtticMaxx ™ Shelving System blog this month. During a series of blog posts in January, AtticMaxx offers advice on tidying up and organizing attics.

According to the National Organization of Professional Organizers (NAPO), January is the national month of “Get Organized” (GO). GO Month is dedicated to raising awareness of the benefits of organizing and hiring a professional organizer at the start of the New Year. Since many of us have recently made trips to our attics to return the Christmas decorations, January is a good month to assess exactly what we have in our attics, what could and should happen in the attic, and how we can use the precious storage space can better use.

The “Organize Your Attic” series of blog posts provides readers with valuable professional organizational advice before they even start on the project, such as:

  • Create the rules “must keep” and “must go”
  • Gather the necessary supplies (checklist provided)
  • Develop a system for moving items into boxes / stacks KEEP, TRASH / RECYCLE and DONATE
  • Take a before picture for encouragement and a sense of accomplishment

The series also offers suggestions for managing the stress and emotions of major attic cleaning.

“The attics are often full of late decision boxes and boxes of treasure, including your great grandmother’s silver or baby clothes that were once worn by your college senior,” said Perri Kersh, professional organizer, owner of Neat Freak and member of National Association of Professional Organizers: “The emotional stress associated with the challenge of sorting through numerous boxes that have accumulated over the years can be overwhelming. Breaking the task down into manageable steps or hiring a professional for support can make the job a lot easier. “”

The final post in the “Organize Your Attic” challenge provides tips and product recommendations to help ensure your attic stays organized. It will cover the advantages of the AtticMaxx ™ shelving system.
