If you live in a large family home, but you are moving to a smaller home soon, you are surely concerned about how all your belongings will fit into your new place. The bad news is that they probably won’t, but there is good news, too: you probably don’t need all the items that you have in your household right now, so the relocation to a smaller dwelling is an excellent opportunity to declutter. Here is how:
- Sort through your items – give yourself plenty of time to take inventory of your items. You surely have emotional attachments to many of your belongings, so be prepared that assessing their condition will be strenuous and difficult. Try to include all the things in your household into one of the following three categories: items that you use and need; items that are functional, but you have not used them in a long time and chances are that you won’t use them in the future either and items that are broken and unusable;
- Make up your mind about the items that are in good shape, but not used – you can sell them or donate them;
- Get good quality packing supplies – you will need sturdy boxes, resistant plastic bags, lots of tape, wrapping paper, bubble wrap, highlighter pens in different colors and labels, and then hire one of the local moving companies Denver has to move you.
