Ways To Declutter Before Moving House
The process of decluttering doesn’t have to be complicated. Start by making time to sort through your belongings before the move. The more time you have, the better, as it allows you to put more thought into decluttering decisions. Next, create a plan on how to tackle the chore. Popular methods are to go room-by-room or by category.
For a room-based approach, try arranging separate boxes for items you want to keep, donate or toss, and begin in the bathroom or a coat closet. These locations can be easier to declutter, as they typically involve fewer emotional decisions. When you feel more comfortable and practiced, move on to complicated areas such as the kitchen, where there are typically many more items to go through.
