Are you planning for a big move and have a lot of stuff to pack? It can be difficult to know what to keep and what to throw away sometimes — maybe it has personal significance. Maybe you don’t use it on a daily basis. Here are some suggestions from UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage to help you in making a decision on what to throw out or keep.

Only hold on to what you use regularly

Consider the things you use on a daily basis. If something isn’t utilized often, there’s a chance you can get rid of it. Consider how much room the item takes up in your house as well. Anything big and bulky should go if you don’t have a lot of space.

Get organized

Separate your things into categories. This method will make it easier to decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Categories might include items like clothing, furniture, and dinnerware, for example. Consider donating or selling unwanted clothes or home furnishings secondhand rather than tossing them out if you have a lot of undesirable garments or house decor.

Is it useful and in good condition?

Examine your belongings to see if anything is damaged or no longer useful. It’s time to get rid of anything that is damaged or no longer useful, especially if you live in a hot environment. If the weather strikes outdoor furniture, for example, as it does in tropical climates, examine it carefully and decide whether it should be kept or replaced with something fresh.

We hope that these ideas have helped you decide what to keep and what to eliminate when moving. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage. We’re here to help!
