We all tend to store items that should have been thrown out a long time ago or that are still functional, but we will never use them again. Moving is the perfect opportunity to get rid of such items – here is how to do it:
- Create three piles in each of your rooms – one pile should be for the items that are damaged, broken, no longer functional and no longer useful for anyone – in other words, you should have a pile that you need to toss. You will also need a pile for the items that are still usable, but you are not likely to be the person who will use them – this pile can be useful, you can decide to sell the items in it and offset some of your moving costs or you can donate the items in it, making others happy. The third pile should consist of the items that you need and use, the items that will go with you to your new place;
- Be strict with yourself – you might find it hard to place items into the first two piles, but taking all the contents of your old household makes no sense. We all tend to be attached to our old belongings and we find it hard to part with such items, but moving to your new place is the beginning of a new life and you don’t need any old clutter in that new life. Nor do you need to pay for shipping for those items when you hire a company such as Your Personal Mover in Wheatridge.
