A purge of old junk is common for people planning to move to a new place. Many people buy and keep things that they no longer require.
Let's be honest you will not be using any of these, so why not sell or donate it to someone who will actually use it.
In this blog, we look at six items that you should dispose of to help make your move to a new place easier and smoother.
Clothes are one of the most disposed items prior to moving to a new home. If you have been living in a place for a long time, the chances are that you will have accumulated dozen unused old clothes stored in the attic, basement, or storage room in your house.
Many of these clothes are out of fashion or don't even fit anymore. The question is, why keep them?
People keep them around for sentimental reasons. But other than that, they are not going to be used. So when you are looking to move, it is best to try selling your old clothes or donate them to a local charity or Salvation Army.
We seldom throw away old mugs, plates, pots, cutlery, can openers, Tupperware, and other items unless they break apart. Even though people buy a new set every year or so, they never really sell or get rid of old kitchenware items.
Ask yourself, do you ever use that blender that you've kept on the top shelf for over three years? No? But you keep it around just in case you will need it one day.
Chances are you won't. If you are moving to a new place, you are more likely to buy a better one anyways. So why not get rid of it instead of taking it to the new place?
Your kids have grown up and left for college. But you keep their toys around for old memories and sentimental reasons.
While some toys are definitely worth keeping around, most ordinary toys are nothing more than junk cluttering up your storage space.
Let your kids know that you are clearing out the shed as you plan the move. They can pick up their old toys, or you can give them away to families with young kids who will actually play with these toys.
The electronics industry has advanced rapidly, with new and better gadgets being introduced every year. If you have old electronics laying around like mobiles, tablets, or other digital devices, there is a good chance that they are no longer useful by modern standards.
You can sell them online to make a few bucks or just give them away to kids in your family to play until they get binned.
Speaking of old devices, media storage units has also changed significantly in the last 20 years. What used to take dozens of CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and magnetic tapes in the past can now all be stored in a small flash disk that is the size of your thumbnail.
If you have boxes full of old storage media collecting dust in your shed, then you may want to get rid of it at the time of moving to a new home.
Many people don't use these media discs anymore, but those who do may be willing to buy them from you if they are in working order.
Old Furniture and Appliances
Old furniture and appliances are also commonly disposed of when moving to a new home. This is because you may not have space in your new home to place the furniture and appliances.
In most cases, you will be buying new furniture and equipment after moving, so it is best to sell them through online selling platforms before your move.
Making these smart decisions can make your move easier and stress-free.
