Moving, Packing and De-cluttering Your HomeAre you looking at your upcoming move as an opportunity to get rid of the clutter and get your home organised? If so, these suggestions are sure to help you get started on your way!

First of all, realise that you will need more time to de-clutter your belongings while you are packing. The more advance notice you have, the better. That way, you can work on lesser used items in the beginning.

Either way, you will need to have a system that you use to go through each room of your home. Generally speaking, you will need to have three different stacks. One will be for garbage, the next for charity and sales, the third being what you plan to take with you.

For those folks who are starting out with sufficient time, it might be a good idea to sell some of the more expensive unwanted items online. Electronics and similar types of goods are popular on auctions sites. If you have an account, the time and know-how, it can be a great way to remove some of the clutter in your home and provide some cash for your bank account.

Another options for those things that wouldn’t fetch a good price online or would otherwise be difficult for you to sell that way is a garage sale. These are held by folks every year and they can bring in a good chunk of change if you have the right stuff.

If you don’t feel like selling the unwanted items that are in good shape, you can simply box them up and donate to a local charity. A local women’s shelter or homeless mission might be the ideal new place for your gently used clothes, books, and household items.

Although you might be feeling sentimental as you sift through your belongings, try to make choices based on facts and logic rather than sheer emotion. While you don’t want to be heartless and toss out everything you have ever owned, you don’t need to keep everything that enters your home. If you have trouble in this regard, have a trusted friend help you during the process.

Make sure that you label your boxes well when you are packing so that you can find everything easily in the new location. It can often take days or even weeks to get everything unpacked and put away after a move. Make sure that you can find the essentials that you need for yourself and your family!

If you are ready to make a new life for yourself in your new place and want to get off on the right foot, you need to use these moving, packing and de-cluttering tips. You will be amazed at how much you will benefit from going through your stuff and clearing out the unwanted items, giving the best to charity and tossing the rest. Go ahead and give it a shot now!
