Moving can be thrilling and liberating - an opportunity to purge clutter, start fresh, and kick old habits to the curb! One key step of planning to relocate involves selecting which items should remain behind, so here is an exploration of some items by National Movers that you might consider leaving behind before embarking on your new journey. Purging will also save you money on local movers and valuable time when unpacking!
Though light bulbs and fixtures might seem harmless when moving house, it's worth carefully considering their compatibility with your new home's design and energy-saving needs. Older fixtures might no longer complement its aesthetic, while outdated incandescent bulbs could be swapped out for energy-efficient LED alternatives; now is your opportunity to update lighting to create the environment you envision for yourself in your new place!
Closets often accumulate clothing items that no longer suit or reflect your style, making a move an excellent opportunity to clear out those that are no longer worn, have sentimental value, or are simply out of style. Consider donating these to charity or recycling them so you can travel light while creating room in your new home for new pieces!
Relying on outdated or incompatible with your new home electrical systems appliances to move may not be ideal; leaving behind those no longer functioning optimally may also make sense; consider getting new energy-efficient ones instead that better suit your needs and add to the aesthetic appeal of the room you now inhabit.
Garages often become storage for items no longer used or no longer serving a purpose, creating clutter in your new garage and freeing up precious storage space for what matters: car storage! Before making this important transition, take some time to go through and organize all of the stuff stored there before taking on moving day. Leaving broken tools, outdated sports equipment, or anything no longer serving its original function behind will create space and help create an efficient start. This process will leave an organized start without clutter!
Blinds and curtains can set the mood in any new home. If your current window treatments don't complement the new interior design or window sizes, consider leaving them behind or giving them away to friends who could put them to good use instead - that way, when selecting window coverings for your new place, you have a blank slate from which you can start with fresh eyes!
Digital streaming services are becoming more prevalent than physical CDs, and DVDs are becoming less relevant in our entertainment spaces. Before moving, assess your collection to determine which items truly cut to bring along with you; leaving behind some items may help declutter your entertainment area while simultaneously moving towards living a digital lifestyle in your new home.
While keeping leftover paint from previous home projects may be tempting, keeping these cans can become unnecessary over time and may no longer match the color scheme in your new house. Before moving house, inventory these cans to assess whether you need them; otherwise, dispose of or donate them as appropriate (donations to local community organizations may also offer opportunities).
