When Does Spring Actually Start in Calgary?
The question going through a lot of people’s minds these days: when will it be Spring?
As March progresses, tolerance for winter begins running dry. Although March 20th may be the official date when spring begins, but sometimes that doesn’t mean much around here. Spring is a feeling in Calgary. Calgarians need external cues: longer days, green grass, migrating birds, the rabbits turning brown again. We can all agree that Calgary is an odd place as far as seasons go. On top of that, the warm winter is making it even more confusing. It definitely doesn’t feel like spring yet, despite the 10 – 15 degree days we have been having.
In my mind, the following must occur in order for it to actually “be” spring:
1. There must be at least one day with a fairly significant rainfall.
2. A weekend with at least one day (I prefer two) with temperatures around 20C.
3.Patches of green grass must be visible. Snow on the ground disqualifies.
And last but not least:
4. A new construction project somewhere that will delay your commute. (Remember that the only two REAL seasons in Calgary: winter and construction!)
Springtime comes, an invisible switch is turned “on”, and the city becomes hectic.
We are world champions at cramming three season’s worth of outdoor activities into our short “not winter”. Once it’s on, we make haste in all the things we have been sitting around thinking about doing throughout the winter. Whether it be buying a bike and exploring, finally getting around to rafting The Bow River, or in our case, removing junk from yards.
Think of all of the “next summer I will”s and write them down on a big piece of paper. Post it up where you can see it! Remind yourself daily of all of the things you want to do, and plan to accomplish them ASAP. Don’t let 2016 be another year that you can’t really remember when you look back on it. As soon as you get the chance, definitely make the time to get away for that camping trip, music festival, or that trip to the lake. Just GO FOR IT. Don’t catch yourself on August 30th, thinking that you missed out yet again on crossing off items from your bucket list.
Let us help you spend your free time doing something that you actually want to do. When you are busy with your new renovation project, or cleaning out your garage or yard, call us. Just point at what you want to go away, and we do absolutely everything else. Let the pros do all of the sorting, recycling, donations, and dumping. We can certainly get that stuff out of your life in a fraction of the time, with almost no effort on your part.
How to Approach a Large Junk Removal Job
Visualize the end and work backwards from there. Imagine the feeling of your space, clean and uncluttered. Perhaps you feel a sense of freedom and lightness. Don’t picture things being throw out, think about sharing what you no longer need with someone else who needs it.
Next, many people make the mistake of not having a concrete plan as to what they want to get rid of or keep. Usually, more stuff appears than you expect once the purging process begins. All those little items in the cupboards add up. Even a small job can appear to grow rapidly, as if you were driving full-speed towards a mountain. Understand that junk removal can become overwhelming when there are a large number of items. Go into the process knowing this beforehand. Despite our experience, even WE become overwhelmed at times.
Pushing past the size of a job is essential. Keep visualizing the end result. Imagine those shelves in the basement laundry room empty, and all of the cupboards bare. Once you visualize an image, that image can fight any sense of dread that appears as item after item goes, yet the junk pile seems to continue growing.
Now that you’ve visualized what it will look like, beware of “staygo”s- they complicate things. A mental swamp bogs down your perfect plan to have all of that useless stuff fly out the door. Decisions about what to keep and what to toss never seem to end. Playing “staygo” will melt your brain after only an hour, to be sure. Ask yourself this question: “If I keep this (insert junk), is it going to end up back in some cupboard or dark corner?” The last thing you want is to keep stuff that’s just going to force you to have to purge again in another round. Despite the temptation, keep this question at the top of your mind. Lastly, keep in mind somebody else will find better use for your old stuff it if you let it go, so don’t worry about it.
Divide up the job into rooms. Regardless if you have a multi-room job with a lot of small items, it helps to treat each room as a separate job. Split a large job up into several smaller ones. In fact, this trick helps give you the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment several times during your junk removal job.
Junk, or treasure? We can often re-home items we were asked to take to the dump. Always with your permission, we drop donations off to our community partners, such as NeighbourLink or VSC-Cameroon. Calgary junk removal need not mean creating piles at local landfills.
