Moving to a new home can be an exciting but overwhelming experience, as there are many tasks to be completed such as choosing paint colors, decorating each room, and purchasing furniture. Packing and moving can also be stressful, especially if you have a lot of items in your home that you no longer use or need. To keep your moving day stress-free and lower moving costs, it’s important to minimize the amount of stuff you need to pack and move. Sunstars Movers offers the following tips for getting rid of items before a move:
1) Plan and sort through your belongings in advance.
2) donate clothes and shoes that you don’t wear.
3) consider organizing a sale for items in good condition.
4) recycle old newspapers and magazines.
5) dispose of old furniture if you don’t plan on using it in your new home. These tips can help you have a smooth and stress-free moving experience.
1. Give Yourself Time:
Start planning and keeping the things aside which you wanted to pack and which you wanted to donate or sell. Don’t wait until the day before the movers arrive, instead plan at least two weeks in advance.
2. Donate Clothes & Shoes which you don’t wear:
Am I going to wear this dress again …? Am I going to wear this pair of shoes…?, If the answer to this question is “No” then don’t keep it, plan on donating most of the rest. Make sure that each piece you are donating is in good condition and well cleaned. Make a list of everything you are donating and then find a local charity that can use the items.
3. Organize a Sale:
Now that you have decided and sorted the stuff which you want to keep and the stuff which you want to get rid of before moving to your new home, if you have a lot of items that you no longer use and if they are in a good condition, consider organizing a sale. It will make you happy by seeing your old things in the hands of people who will use and cherish them. It is also a good way to make a little extra money to put forward your moving expenses.
You can advertise your sale in your local Facebook group, or your WhatsApp group, by adding pictures of your best items to attract more buyers.
4. Recycling of Old Newspapers and Magazines:
So, rather than throwing everything you can’t sell or donate, separate those newspapers and magazines and recycle them so that they can be used again.
5. Old Furniture:
If you are planning to buy new furniture for your house, and you don’t need them anymore, then look for local furniture pickup from your house, or sell the old furniture if it’s still in good condition.
