The Good and Now of Decluttering

October 6, 2020

Are you planning to move and excited about a new beginning in your life? May good luck follow you to your new house, but not the clutter that you may have accumulated over the years and now, waits to move with you.

This is a perfect time to check your stuff and dispose items that are no longer serving any purpose. Eliminating clutter is a great way to prepare for your move. It not only cleanses your house of unwanted things, but it clears your mind as well.

Here are a few reminders of the benefits of decluttering your house.

Eliminates waste

Unused items in your house will incur space and energy costs. Moving unnecessary items will waste your time and increase your stress of preparation and packing.

Moving home is a great opportunity to start fresh and create a clutter-free environment. It is best to get rid of the waste and lighten your load before the big move.

Reduces costs

Moving entails a lot of preparation, hard-work and costs. As you pack your things, you will be surprised to see so many worthless things needlessly occupying space. It is a costly exercise to take all of this with you when they are practically no longer needed.

Keep in mind that lesser the volume you move, the less you’ll pay for packing supplies and moving fees.

Happy atmosphere

When you decide to get rid of futile baggage before the move, you can enter your new home with a happier and easy feeling. The lesser the stuff, the neater you can arrange them in the new house. Your surroundings would appear less cramped, creating a calm atmosphere with ample open space for your family to enjoy.

Make some money

Consider selling things that are no longer of use to you but still have resale value. You might end up with a nice sum of money on your hands to purchase essential furniture or appliances you really require. Also, this will help you get organized by listing the priority items that you need for your new home.

Health benefits

Piles of stuff in closed spaces will make you feel clumsy or even claustrophobic. Clutter leaves you feeling overwhelmed and stressed out.

When you tidy up before the move, you can enter your new home with a relaxed mind. Your home is a sanctuary of tranquility from the outside world. As you step in, you should feel peaceful and serene. By getting rid of the mess, you will do a favor for your mental health.

Help others in need

While you go through your accumulated stuff over the years, you may come across unused clothes, old toys or books that could be of use to someone else. Your trash could be someone’s treasure.

Help a family member or a neighbor by passing on some of your functional belongings. Even consider donating your possessions to an orphanage, local shelter or charity organization, to help people in need.

Decluttering home before the move improves your life at many levels making an important thing to do before your next move. Even if you are not moving soon you may want to look at your clutter and resolve to clean it out during the next weekend or long holiday.
