So, you have just signed the documents to your new sleek looking apartment and the days to move in are getting closer. You’re more than excited just as much as stressed thinking about the number of items you have collected over time living in one space all your life. Imagine scouring through every corner of your home and finding things you haven’t seen in a while or have forgotten about.
The next minute you’re calling up a professional house clearance service in Manchester to come do the job for you. But before that, you could invest in an organized packing process for your new life and future home.
- Identify and Sort Out
Initially, it’s always best to know what you have in your possession. You can look around, gather everything and spread them all on your bed or in a large space even when it looks intimidating. Afterall, it’s about what to keep back, discard the badly damaged pile and sell the rest instead of dragging it along with you to your next destination which can slow down the process.
- Get Rid of What You Never Use
There’s no requirement to keep the things that you never really use at home. Often, people save things tugging the heartstrings, while others usually procrastinate when it comes to discarding. If you feel stuck, think of the space the item’s going to take in your new home and how much you can really save. This is the time to make smarter and spaceful decisions moving forward.
- Donate to the Homeless and Needy
If you feel that it’s time to start drifting away from the books overfilling your shelf in the display area, there are plenty of up-to-date non profit places you can ask your waste collecting service to donate them to those who can benefit. It’s not just books that you might have that need discarding. You may also have clothing pieces that are wearable and in good condition but really don’t enjoy having it in your wardrobe anymore. You could drop off the goods casually at any of the thrift shops available in your area.
- No More ‘What Ifs’
If you’re swarmed by questions like ‘what if I need it later’ or ‘what if they become useful in the future’, this is because like a lot of other people, you’re hoarding too much treasured clutter such as life souvenirs that are going to do nothing other than just idle around the house again. Your home, like you, needs breathing space and clinging to pointless scraps will not free any of the extra weight you’re currently carrying.
