If you want ot lessen the charges of the moving company that you are dealing with in your relocation, you nee to de-clutter first. Getting rid of the stuff that you don’t need anymore will lighten your load in the relocation, lessen your amount to be paid and give the extra space that you badly need in your new house. You can even make money out of these items as you can sell them on online auction or garage sale prior to your move.
Classifying the things in your house is the first way to de-clutter. Things that you don’t need anymore should be on the “Discard” section and things that you will need or may need in the future goes to the “Store” area. Things that you put in the store area are things that you will bring with you in your move. Things which are on the discard department needs to be left behind, sold or donated. Being early in the de-cluttering of your stuff will give you a chance to conduct several yard sales and make a few bucks. If you de-clutter a couple of days before the relocation, you may never have the chance of making money out of your unwanted stuff.
Rept this sorting out porcess in all rooms in your house. Decide what needs to be stored and what needs to be thrown away. After going through all parts of your house. Put all these”Discard” stuff in a dry place that way you can have your weekend yard sale. If you plan to sell them on sites like e-bay, take a picture of these items and post them on the Internet. Just make sure you don’t throw the item that you’ve posted as the ibdders of that item may be pissed and may give you negative feedback if they win the bidding and you can not send them the item that they want.
