Choosing which items in your home you are going to get rid of what you are going to keep can sometimes be a difficult task. You may feel some emotional attachment to the item or you may simply think it could come in handy in the future.
Questions To Ask When Determining What To Keep
Here are a few questions you should ask yourself while making moving preparations:
How often is this used? If the item has not been worn or used in the past year, toss it. There is little to no value in moving any belongings that you no longer use. Donate items that are lightly used and throw away items that are no longer usable.
Where will it go in your new home? If the item is simply going to be put back into the storage room of your home, don’t waste money, time or space bringing it along for the move. Don’t clutter your storage space before you even arrive at the new place.
Will it fit? If you have large furniture, you should consider whether or not it will fit into the layout of your new space. Taking measurements of the new space as well as the furniture can remove any doubt about whether or not the furniture belongings in the new home.
What is it worth? Does it have some value in your family? How practical is it? How disappointed will you be without it? There are many questions you should ask yourself before deciding what items will make the journey with you.
Always remember though that you can go overboard with purging. Keep the thought that you could actually be getting rid of items that you will need in the future or simply will be very disappointed that you got rid of.
