Before the Move

Go through the house, room by room. Identify the stuff to get rid. Things the kids have outgrown. Stuff that hasn’t moved in years & items that just don’t have a place in your new home. There’s a cost to move this stuff, don’t spend it on cluttering up your new home.


During the Move

The more prep work you do leading up to the move, the better. Even still, moving day is stressful. You’ll need to make decisions. Space & time is at a premium during a move. Not everything is going to make it onto the truck. So, you’ll end up with another “give away” pile. For more, also check out our Moving Tips Roundtable blog post.

After the Move

More Tips... Pre- Move Decluttering Advice

Decluttering before moving out of your house can be a daunting task, but here are some general steps you can follow to make the process easier:

  1. Start early: Begin the decluttering process as soon as you know that you will be moving. This will give you plenty of time to go through all of your belongings and make informed decisions about what to keep and what to get rid of.

  2. Set goals: Set goals for yourself, such as decluttering one room per week or tackling a certain number of items each day. This will help you to stay motivated and make progress.

  3. Sort items: Sort your belongings into categories such as keep, donate, sell, and throw away. Be honest with yourself about what you really need and use, and what is just taking up space.

  4. Be strategic: Start with the areas that have the most clutter, such as closets, basements, and attics. Once you have sorted through those areas, move on to less cluttered spaces like the living room and bedrooms.

  5. Use the one-year rule: If you haven’t used or worn something in the past year, it’s probably safe to get rid of it. This rule can help you to be more objective about your belongings.

  6. Get rid of duplicates: If you have multiple items that serve the same purpose, such as multiple sets of dishes or duplicate clothing items, choose the ones you use most often and get rid of the rest.

  7. Dispose of hazardous waste: Dispose of any hazardous waste such as chemicals or batteries properly. Contact your local waste management facility for guidelines on how to dispose of hazardous waste.

  8. Sell or donate items: Consider selling items that are in good condition but that you no longer need, such as furniture or electronics. You can also donate items to a charity or thrift store.

Remember, the less you have to pack and move, the easier your move will be. Decluttering can be a freeing process and can help you to start fresh in your new home.

Post Move Junk Removal

After a move, you may find that you have accumulated a lot of junk that you no longer need or want. This may include items fron your last house that just don’t work in your new home, but it also means trash like moving boxes, wrapping paper and styrofoam all needs to go. Here are some ways to get rid of it:

Donate items: If some of your items are still in good condition, consider donating them to a local charity or thrift store. This is a great way to give back to your community and help those in need.

Sell or give- away items: If you have items that are still in good condition but that you no longer need, consider selling them online or in a garage sale. This can help you to recoup some of the cost of your move.

Recycle: Check with your local recycling center to see what items they accept. You may be able to recycle items such as cardboard boxes, packing materials, and electronics.

Hire a junk removal service: If you have a lot of junk that needs to be removed, consider hiring a junk removal service. They will come to your home and haul away your unwanted items for you.

Trash removal: If you have items that cannot be recycled or donated, you can dispose of them in the trash. Check with your local waste management facility to see if there are any special guidelines or restrictions for disposing of certain items.

Remember to sort through your items before getting rid of them. You may find that some items you thought were junk can be repurposed or reused in your new home. By getting rid of unnecessary items, you can start fresh in your new space and enjoy a clutter-free home.
