Time To Declutter

When moving home it’s a great chance to declutter! All that unnecessary storage you have gathered over the years that has no purpose can now be thrown or given away. To make moving easier don’t pack too much clutter and label all boxes efficiently, this will make it easier to decipher which boxes go in which rooms once they arrive at your new home.

When decluttering before a move it’s important to ask yourself:

  • Do I really need it?
  • Why am I keeping it?
  • Do I have a place for it in my new home?
  • When was the last time I used it?

Once you can answer these questions, it’s easier to see what to keep and what to say goodbye to.

Give yourself plenty of time for the Move

Once your mind is made up and you have decided to move, try to give yourself plenty of time to sort through everything. If you have lived in the same place for years you may not realise how much you will have to sort through.

Additional things to consider will be notifying everyone about your change of address. This will include all bill companies that send you letters, your car insurer, bank account, doctors, schools, work etc.
