One of the benefits of moving is that it makes you get rid of all the clutter that has accumulated in your household over time. The decluttering process might be hard, but it will save you lots of space and money, so here is how to do it right:
- Start early – having to pack in a hurry is the worst thing that can happen to you, so try to avoid it. If you know the date of your move, start the packing procedures at least three weeks before that date – decluttering takes a lot of time;
- Categorize your items – move from room to room and create three piles in each room, one for the items that you need and use, one for the items that are still functional, but you don’t use and one for the items that are broken or unusable.
- Sell or donate – after you have the three piles, you have one more decision to make: the fate of the items that are still usable, but not for you. You have three great options: you can organize a garage sale and sell your things to offset your moving costs with hiring the best movers in Denver; you can sell your items online or you can donate them to charity organizations.
