Things to Get Rid of Before You Move

So you’re moving soon, congratulations! But now you’re left with a big task of going through everything so you can clean it and pack it! Somethings honestly, just don’t need to come with you though; they can be thrown away, sold or donated. Because we all know that somethings are sitting collecting dust now, and they will continue to do that in your new home. So why should you bother packing them in and unpacking them later for it to just be useless and eventually thrown away.

The Bedroom and the Bathroom

These are places we tend to keep a lot of stuff because “we might need it” and then we forget about it while we don’t need it. So let’s begin with the bedroom, you should get rid of:

  • Old, stained and unworn clothes.
  • Broken jewellery, or unmatched earrings.
  • Nightstand and draw clutter, you don’t need it.
  • Old shoe boxes.
  • Unused bags.

In the bathroom you’ll need to get rid of:

  • Old make up, old nail polish and old sunscreen.
  • Old medicine and ointments.
  • Broken and old towels/ bathmats
  • Broken brushes and old accessories.

The Kitchen

Just because it’s the kitchen doesn’t mean there aren’t things taking up cupboard space. You should be getting rid of:

  • All the old food in the fridge and the cupboards, you’re not going to eat those peaches from 2012…
  • Broken appliances, you haven’t needed it or you have a new one already.
  • Get rid of the old kitchen tools that you never use and have duplicates of.
  • Don’t forget to clean out the junk draw of the house; do you really need 60 dead batteries?

The Garage

The garage is home to so many things that we don’t use anymore, you should be getting rid of:

  • Old paint and worn out brushes.
  • Broken tools.
  • Any bikes that no one has used in the past year.
  • All those old rags that are everywhere.
  • The unused sports equipment.

Getting Ready For Your Move

Moving is a time consumer and daunting task, and it would be easier to not have to worry about a fraction of the stuff that you have, and we all know that you don’t use. Don’t waste your time and energy bringing unusable stuff into your new home, and to still have to unpack it. Get in touch with Better Moves to help you during the stressful time of your move.
