Moving Tip #1
Just because you own it, doesn’t mean you have to move it!
When preparing to move you will come across things you may have lost, forgotten about or that don’t even belong to you! Don’t hesitate to get rid of them! Don’t let unwanted possessions follow you around from move to move. There are so many options for getting rid of items in your home or office before a move. Some moving companies provide junk removal and donation services. Some charities even offer services to pick up donations FOR FREE. You can even get money for them if you have some motivation to get your side hustle going. There are technologies like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, Offer Up and Let Go to sell your belongings for cash, or even go old school and take it to the pawn shop!
Also never be afraid to just throw it out. You will come across things that cant be donated or that you may have some emotional attachment to for whatever reason. If that’s the case, ask yourself these questions: When was the last time you used it? Did you remember you had it before you stumbled across it? When will you use it again? Answering those quick questions should help decide if you should keep it. Remember, you don’t have to keep everything! In fact it’s probably the best time you will ever have to clean out what you don’t want to drag around anymore!
