Moving Tip #1
You can do any amount of research on how to move...finding the right moving company, packing efficiently, and so much more. However, having gone through many moves, including one right now, I would suggest that one of the first things you need to do is edit everything in your house to see what stays or what will go with you to your new home.
There’s no reason to take what you don’t want, need or use any more or what is long past its expiration date to your new home.
My tip is to begin early and take one area at a time. Begin with a drawer in your kitchen and have a trash bin on one side and a box for donating on the other.
Go through your pantry and closets, check out your drawers as well. It’s easier to pack if you’re not having to decide what you want to pack.
THIS is the time to try on every article of clothing and decide if it’s a keeper.
The set of dishes you bought when you first moved away from home may or may not make the trip with you. Decide this before you begin to pack.
Don’t be afraid to keep that special martini glass that looks more like a work of art. (Yes, something I do admit to) With few exceptions, many of us are collectors of things. But you need to learn how to control your things...don’t let them control what you do in life.
