You might think that packing for your move is a large enough task, without adding decluttering to your to-do list. The truth is, if you don’t sort through your items beforehand, you’re not doing yourself any favours. Decluttering is as simple as sorting items into categories such as ‘keep’, ‘donate’ and ‘throw away/recycle’.
Here’s why it’s necessary to declutter your home before moving.
If you’re not moving as many items, moving won’t take as long. It makes sense, doesn’t it? You’ll be packing less, and therefore unpacking less when you get to your new home. Decluttering as you pack will also make the process take longer, so be sure to set aside time to do so before you begin packing.
You not only save time with decluttering, but money as well. If you’ve got fewer items to move you can hire a smaller van or truck, you can buy less supplies like tape boxes, and you won’t need to pay your movers for as many hours as you would for a bigger load.
If the reason for your move is because you’ve bought a new home and are selling your old one, then decluttering is a necessity. Your home will look much neater and appeal more to prospective buyers, and could help it sell faster. You might even get a higher price, too!
