How to De-Clutter Your Home Before a Move

A move to a new house can be an exciting experience, but it’s not without a certain amount of stress. For people who have lived in a home for a long time, the prospect of packing everything up for relocation might seem daunting, but there are some steps you can take to make things easier. One of the most important preparative actions is to de-clutter your living space and get rid of the things that you don’t actually need to pack. Here are a few tips to make this process as painless as possible.
The biggest thing to remember when de-cluttering home spaces is to start as early as possible. If you begin the process a month in advance, you can take an hour or two each day to tackle a specific closet or room. If you have excessive stores of your regular consumables like toilet paper, shampoo or soap, stop buying them when you go to the grocery store and whittle away at those provisions. Set things aside that you’ll need for the big day, like tape, nails and other moving supplies. Make sure to label that box so it doesn’t get packed. When going through your house, save sentimental decisions for last. Use three boxes to sort things into “keep,” “throw away” or “donate” categories, and be sure to use labels on each container.
