Getting Rid of Your Junk Before Your Move
Many people believe that moving just entails shifting all of your belongings to a new location. However, one of the most important aspects of relocating, and one that is usually an advantage, is that you will almost always have to get go of some things you don’t need in the process.
Just because you have something in your current home doesn’t mean you have to take it with you to your new one. Below are some things you should do to get rid of junk before you move.
TAKE THE TIME TO SORT THROUGH YOUR BELONGINGS
Don’t make the mistake of stuffing everything into a container just because it’s on a shelf. Take some time while you pack up your house to think about what you need to bring and what you don’t.
ASK QUESTIONS TO YOURSELF
If you’re not sure whether to pack, give, or throw anything away, consider the following:
- How long has it been since I’ve used it?
- Is there any sentimental value to it?
- Is there enough room in my new house for it?
- Do I recall why you purchased it?
If you can’t come up with a favorable answer to any of those questions, you should definitely throw it.
ORGANIZE A YARD SALE
Why not host a garage sale and attempt to make some money while you’re getting rid of the junk you don’t need? Set a realistic price for everything and put it on display for possible customers. One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure, as the saying goes.
HIRE A JUNK REMOVAL COMPANY
Your regular garbage guy may refuse to accept huge pieces of furniture, broken appliances, or a significant number of boxes worth of smaller items. Hiring a garbage removal company is the ideal way to get rid of unwanted items and better prepare for your upcoming relocation.
