Getting Rid of Un-Used Items When Moving

Over time you and your family bring random items into your home that often end up being un-used. Sometimes it’s easy to know what you want to keep and what you don’t want to keep, sometimes it’s hard. You should already have a pretty good idea of what you are definitely bringing into your new home when moving.

There are a lot of little things like old toys, statues, framed art work, games, unwanted clothes and blankets. One great way to get rid of these things would be to start a garage sale; if you have the time of course. Many neighbors and people who drive through the town will want to stop by and see what’s for sale.

Another great way to get rid of un-used items without going through so much work, would be to give it away to gently used stores, charity, or even family and friends. They will be thankful for having thought of them and they might even love the things you’re giving away.

Sometimes it is overlooked that you have expired toiletries sitting around in the closet, or under the cupboards. Checking for and throwing those out is necessary as you don’t want you or your family to use a bottle of expired shampoo. There might be some papers or receipts around the house that are not needed and those should also be thrown away.

Going through items in your household and giving away, or throwing away, is not only essential for you but also for the move. The less things you have to take the easier it is to create a fresh new space to mold to your liking. And trust me, the moving company will thank you for it as well.
