Instead, take time to declutter and streamline your belongings before moving day. You will enjoy more room in your new living space and savings on moving day in time and money by having less to transport. Not sure where to start? Read on for tips on how to declutter your home.

Tips for Decluttering Before You Move
Resist the urge to toss everything you own into boxes in a haphazard fashion. Getting organized now and getting rid of things you don’t use will help you feel lighter, move quicker and enter your new space with only items that you truly want and need.
Here are a few simple tips for tackling the decluttering and purging process:
- Give yourself time – If you are racing the clock, you probably won’t be very thoughtful when you pack! Give yourself plenty of time to start packing before the move. That doesn’t mean you have to live with your belongings in boxes for months, but you should start organizing things, getting rid of unused belongings, or posting ads online for furniture and other large items that you know won’t work in your new space. Time will also allow you to be organized and properly gather your items by category. If you tackle all your things at the last minute, you may not realize you paid to have 4 hammers shipped! Bring similar objects together to make unpacking simpler and to eliminate packing and keeping redundant objects.
- Ask yourself questions – Be thoughtful and really look carefully when you are packing your things. If you have forgotten that you owned it, laugh when you see it, or are not even sure what it is, it probably doesn’t need to accompany you to this new phase of your life! Ask yourself when was the last time you used it, and truly consider if you need it in the future. Openly ask yourself if someone else would use it and appreciate the item more. It could be someone you know who has always admired an art piece that won’t fit in your new hallway, or a stranger who may need a television when you have an older model collecting dust.
- Make it a positive experience – You won’t get the chance to go through all your belongings often, so taking the opportunity to narrow them down to things you really love, appreciate and use can be a satisfying experience. Passing your unused belongings on can give you a great feeling. Framing your departure from unused belongings as ‘a new beginning’ or ‘making space’ will help you feel better and think about them differently than ‘throwing things out’ or ‘losing your stuff’.
