Not only will you save yourself a lot of trouble if you leave what you don’t need; it will make your old house more appealing to potential buyers. Chances are, you probably have a lot of stuff you THINK you can’t bear to part with, but you’d be very surprised at the amount of things that you can do without in your new home.
To complete this task, all you need are a lot of garbage bags or plastic bags. De-clutter your home one room at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed by the amount of stuff you need to get rid of. When looking at an item, ask yourself if it’s worth moving and the time and effort you’ll spend packing it up. Usually, items that end up getting thrown away are figurines and souvenirs that gather dust on the shelves. Only keep the things you really love and use regularly. The same goes for clothes as well.
So that your old things don’t go to waste, organize a garage sale before you move out or donate them to charity.
