Whether it’s your first move or your second, the process usually gets simpler. However, if you’re known to overpack for weekend getaways, then there’s a strong chance that you might overpack when moving into your new living space. If you’re caught up with playing a game of “Keep or Toss,” then here are a few tips on what you should leave behind at your old pad.
Furniture That Has Seen Better Days
You know exactly what we’re talking about: the bulky couch from your college days that just happened to extend its stay in your life. While this piece of furniture may have been there for you when studying for finals and eating pizza past midnight, now might be the time to part ways with this college “heirloom.” Especially if you’ve been contemplating getting rid of it in the past, moving would be the perfect excuse to finally toss it out and purchase a much more sturdy furniture set!
Random Knickknacks You’ve Kept Around
Whether it’s a relative or coworker, sometimes you’re gifted with a random knickknack from their latest vacation. While the gesture is kind and thoughtful, sometimes those collectibles build up over time and take up space. If you’ve been contemplating giving them away or selling them online, now is the time to do so. Just think: for every souvenir you get rid of, the less you’ll have to pack/unpack and the more room you’ll have to store your actual prized possessions in your new space!
Remember that paper bill from an online clothing order you received years ago? It can be taking up much more space than you realize — especially if you tend to save all of your receipts. Saving any paperwork that doesn’t serve a purpose in your current day-to-day may be bogging down your boxes and weighing down your packing time. To cut back on paper clutter, invest in a paper shredder and start shredding any document that is either outdated or doesn’t serve a purpose.
