3 Tips for Getting Rid of Junk Before Moving

1. Sort Items Into Different Categories

Create a list of all your items and divide them into one of four categories: necessary, valuable, unnecessary, and unwanted. Items in the necessary category include furniture, appliances, and clothing that you will absolutely be using in your new home. Valuable items include things such as jewelry, collectors’ items, and any family heirlooms. The unnecessary category includes items that may be in good condition, such as workout equipment or clothing, but that you may not use often, if at all. Finally, the unwanted category includes broken or outdated items such as VCR’s, old toys, and damaged linens.

2. Determine What Stays & What Goes

Items from your “necessary” and “valuable” categories will almost certainly come with you to your new home, but you’ll also have to comb through the unnecessary or unwanted categories to decide what to take. Although you won’t need many of these items, you may want to keep them for sentimental value or in case of a rainy day. However, unless you are sure there will be a use for them in the future, it is best to leave them behind.

3. Decide What to Do With Your Junk

After you have determined what stays and what goes, you need to decide what to do with the items that you are leaving behind. You may be able to leave old furniture and other items for the next tenants, however this isn’t always an option. Obvious junk can be thrown away and items that are in good condition can be sold online or through a yard sale. Others can be recycled, donated, or placed into storage.
