I'm guilty of saving some old baby stuff and toys because my kids were born almost 17 yrs. apart. The eldest is likely to consider a baby soon enough and she might like to have some of these things. (Some of these these things were hers as a baby)!

Or just a lawn & leaf bag, which isn't exactly hard to put stuff into.

And once your clutter is tamed buy a labeler and label everything you can so you'll know where everything goes and avoid immediately re-cluttering.

A Bagster is a totally different thing. It's a small dumpster, not a trash bag. You can throw out large items, irregularly shaped things that would tear bags, construction and demolition debris include things like leftover lumber from projects that has been hanging around for years. Old mattresses or furniture. Great if you have lots of toys and bulky kid stuff that isn't worth handing down to anyone but which cannot be put in trash bags without shredding them. Plus you can get rid of it in one fell swoop, most people I know have fairly stringent limits on how much trash they can put out at one time. Particularly if you are trying to clear out a basement, garage, or attic, I think a Bagster is a huge help.

Not a problem at all. I try to this twice a year-new years and summerish.

Also I've moved a lot and that helps trim the fat too, lol

I realize you are looking for a person/service to help you declutter. I wanted to add my two cents. Yesterday I did a goodwill purge of my apartment. Pulled out every of the closets and just got rid of stuff. Felt so good to open up space and get rid of items. I have heard the adage if you haven't used it/worn in a year toss it(donate it, if salvageable). I pulled everything out of the closet to inventory. My apartment was temporarily messy for a short time and then once I got it gone I had all this free, open space. Felt so good to purge. Gonna keep doing this until I move. I realized with my last move I got so attached to materialistic things. Things can be replaced. I was holding on to things I had not touched/used in years for reason I could not figure out. Let it go. I love the mantra "Less is more" Good luck on your De-cluttering.
