If you’re moving to another house, then there are a few steps you will need to take to ensure that your old house has been fully cleared before you move into your new one. Below features some of our top tips that will make clearing your house as easy as possible.
Set a time frame and stick to it
Moving out is a long process, so the second you decide to move; you need to start actively clearing. Set a time frame and make sure you stick to it, and remember to clear room-by- room to make it easier for yourself.
Decide what you want to keep
Use multi-coloured sticky notes to decide what you want to ‘keep’, ‘donate’, ‘sell’ or ‘throw away’. Apply these sticky notes to boxes and onto items that can’t be boxed (like furniture).
Be selective, ruthless and realistic
Many people struggle to throw away sentimental objects, but it’s important to not get too attached to every little thing. You need to be ruthless, otherwise you’ll end up accidentally moving lots of junk to your new house which will make it over-cluttered.
You also need to think realistically about how much you will benefit from an item once it has been moved to your new place. If you haven’t used an item in a long time then you’ll probably never use it again, so get rid of it.
