Moving is one of the best times to go through your home and get rid of everything that you no longer need. Most people have way more belongings that they actually use and need. While moving can be stressful, it can be cleansing to know that you are going to be more organized and able to purge some of the junk that we often accumulate over time. Mickey’s Carting is here to talk about the best ways to get rid of the junk you no longer need before your big move.
It’s Time to Sort Your Stuff to Organize Your Whole Life!
This is the best time to really evaluate your belongings to see if they are necessary in your life anymore. This is a good time to find out if something is still even working before you move it to your new home. There are likely some items that are old and don’t work like they should anymore. A good rule of thumb when you are sorting through your things is to ask yourself some of these questions:
– Have I used this item in the last 5 years?
– Does it still work?
– Do I have room for it in my new house?
– Is it a safety hazard?
– Is it something I would be willing to invest in restoration services for?
If you can’t answer yes to these questions, it is more than likely time to part ways with whatever you are thinking of getting rid of.
Sorting Documents & Paperwork when Moving
When you are sorting through documents found in old boxes in your home, you certainly want to take your time here. You would hate to throw out your child’s birth certificate or your marriage license in the midst of your move and a moment of haste. There are several documents that you can also feel good about getting rid of more than likely. If you have old bank statements that you can now look at electronically or pay stubs that fit that same bill, you could probably get rid of them without giving them another thought. Just be careful when you are sorting through documents.
What Items are Not Worth Moving?
You need to ask yourself if you are really looking at an item that is worth transporting to your new home. This is especially true for larger items that can be heavy to lift and take up a lot of room on the truck. If you are questioning whether the item is worth it, you may want to consider getting rid of it.
