Moving to a new place is an exciting fresh start. When you are changing locations, this can be the perfect time to clean out those closets and get rid of everything you don’t need or use anymore. However, if you are a disorganized person, the thought of moving is overwhelming. This can be a chance to start over again and get control of the disorganization. Good Time Moving & Storage is here with some tips to help with your move if you struggle with disorganization.
Declutter Before Packing
This is the perfect time for you to start sorting through your belongings. Start one room at a time and start sorting your things in piles that you would like to keep and things you are okay parting ways with. You will want to have your items sorted so that when the time comes to start packing, you can pack according to rooms and will have an easier time finding your things in your new place.
What Should You Not Pack?
The longer you live in one spot, the more things you start to compile. Not all of them you use. This is a good time to get rid of the things that you don’t use. As your purge items that you no longer need or use, you will find that you have much more space for the things in your life that are actually important to you. Getting rid of junk can almost feel therapeutic. If you have items that have been broken for some time, this is the perfect time to get rid of them. Make sure you take special care in getting rid of any electronics, batteries, medications and other items like that.
What are Good Items to Donate?
If you have items that still work perfectly fine, but you don’t use them anymore, don’t forget that you can donate them rather than throw them away. You can choose a local charity or a thrift store to donate these items to. Make sure you check with whatever location you are planning to donate to, just to make sure there aren’t special times that they take donations, so you aren’t wasting your time when you show up at the wrong time.
Should I Label My Moving Boxes?
When the packing finally starts, don’t forget to label. You may think you remember where you put certain things, but as boxes start to pile up, you will easily forget where you put things when you don’t label boxes well enough. Get as detailed as possible with your labeling once packing starts.
