Declutter downsize when moving home

Moving Home: Declutter and Downsize

Well, it’s that time in your life; you’re moving home. The opportunity for a fresh start and create a new home environment.  Moving is a hard and tedious task for anyone. No one likes to pack everything up in boxes, unload the boxes, unpack the boxes. Placing everything in its designated area especially when you have way too much stuff you do not even need. After the move you always end up with lost or broken items, boxes that never seem to get unpacked, and hours of lost time and energy. Wouldn’t it be easier using tips and tricks on how to prepare before the move? You are about to learn a few easy steps on how to: declutter, downsize, and get rid of unwanted belongings when moving home.

Let’s take a look at some of the things you can eliminate immediately. Search for easy to identify possessions called the “low hanging fruit” in your home. Some of these things might include:

  • Clothes that do not fit or that do not appeal to you any more.
  • Expired foods, medicines, etc.
  • Old paperwork you will never need to use again.
  • Old magazines, newspapers, and books.
  • Almost empty bottles of shampoo, hairspray, deodorant, etc.
  • Things that do not fit into your lifestyle any more.
  • Phone chargers, cords, or outdated cables.

Have no mercy and be ruthless in your Declutter

Go round each room of the house with a bin bag emptying draws shelves and any areas where stuff accumulates which you just do not need. A good tip to remember is: if you haven’t used it in the past six months, get rid of it. Do not to buy products in bulk before your home move. It makes your job harder and you either loose useful household products. Or have to lug them around with you; neither of those are good options. Once you have made a neat stack (or in some cases, a messy pile) out of your useless items. Decide what to donate and what to sell. By getting rid of all of your unwanted belongings, you save tons of space for new items you will actually use. Nicks removals can take old furniture to the tip or even get it recycled.
