Moving home is the beginning of a new adventure and an excellent opportunity to get rid of items you no longer need or use. A declutter is an essential part of the moving process (whether you like it or not), and not only does it free up space, but gives you an excuse to buy new pieces of furniture and such when you move to your new home! At American Way, we’ve put together some decluttering questions you should be asking yourself before you move.
Out with the Old!
If you’re lacking motivation when it comes to your move and need a little push in the right direction, the following tips should have you successfully decluttering your home in no time!
- Make a list of all of the big items (such as furniture) you’ll definitely be taking to your new home. Anything that you won’t be taking with you should be recycled, sold or given away.
- Be as scrupulous as possible when decluttering your home. If there are items that you haven’t used in a long time, consider whether it adds any value to your life. And if not, do you need them? No, you probably don’t, so get rid!
- Get rid of old pieces of furniture that are worn and tatty. It can be tough if you really like that old coffee table, but it’s probably time fo an upgrade…
- Enlist your family and friends to help you declutter your home as they’re always happy to help you throw out old, unneeded belongings – mostly as it doesn’t belong to them!
