Switching houses? Then now is the perfect time to finally go through all the clutter and make some tough decisions about what needs to move and what needs to go away.
There is no point in waiting until after a move to go through the junk lying around, as tempting as it may be, so here are five ways to decide what should find a new home before a move.
Start With A Trip To The Dump
Before starting the move, grab some garbage bags and do a sweep of the house, making sure to toss out anything that needs to go to the dump. This will clear up the home of anything unnecessary and makes it easier to throw out some items when there’s no decision making pressure.
Decide What Furniture Will Be Replaced In Advance
A new home often means new furniture. By deciding in advance which items will be purchased new, homeowners can prepare to either sell or give away their older furniture before they move. Saving space and cutting down one extra step after moving in.
Sell Or Donate What You Don’t Need
