Tips to Get Rid of Your Unwanted Stuff before Moving
According to a survey, moving is one of the most stressful situations people had to deal with in life. But you should never let surveys change your view of moving. There are a lot of things you can do to ease this process. Perhaps the most effective technique is removing of all your unwanted stuff.
Moving is a great opportunity to clear the clutter and lighten the atmosphere in your new home. Aside from saving huge space in your new place, you also get to spend less money and effort in packing and moving extra stuff you will never use. Let me give you some tips on how to go about it.
Step 1: Sort out Unwanted Stuff
Walk around your home and sort out unwanted items. What exactly are these items? They are the ones that you have not used for a year or so. Don't forget to include items that are gathering dust in the attic and basement.
Step 2: Prepare the Basement
The next step is to prepare the basement. Gather all your unwanted stuff in your basement and begin separating the treasures from the junk. Throw out the junk and organize still-usable items in your special area.
Step 3: Invite Friends Over
Yes, you are going to hold a big party in your basement! The goal is to encourage friends to pick up anything that they want so you can get the unwanted stuff off your back. If there are remainders, bag it up and drop them off to your local charity.
