Moving introduces all kinds of stress into your life—don’t let moving unnecessary items play a part. Help yourself enjoy a streamlined moving process by utilizing the following tips from M. Dyer & Sons. The premier Honolulu moving company constantly emphasizes the importance of decluttering your home to save yourself money and stress on moving day.
Lighten your load with these tips:
Ask Yourself the Right Questions
Determine whether an item is worth keeping by asking yourself if you have used it in the last year or so. If the answer is a resounding no, put the item in the donate/giveaway pile. If you find yourself wavering on something despite not using it for a long time, ask yourself if you are getting the most value from the item or if someone else will enjoy it more.
Declutter by Room
Avoid panic attacks by decluttering your house by room. Decluttering by room is much easier than trying to tackle your entire house at once. It also makes it easier to keep up with what you are giving away.
Label Giveaway Bins
Organize the culling process even more by labeling giveaway bins and boxes. Labeling ideas include “Outdated or Outgrown,” “Duplicate Items,” “Stuff for Family to Sort,” “Thrift Store/Consignment Shop Donations,” and so on. You may also want to create boxes for gifts you never really liked in the first place and collector’s items you wish to sell online.
Discuss these and other valuable culling tips with the team at M. Dyer & Sons as you prepare for your big move. The Honolulu moving company proudly supports Move For Hunger and will happily take your unwanted canned goods and other non-perishable foods to further lighten your load. Have the movers collect canned goods on moving day or drop them off at the company headquarters.
