Determining What To Take With You  - Determining What To Take With You

We are continuing or series on what items you should consider taking with you when you move. In any event, you should make a separate pile of items that you are and are not taking with you before your moving company arrives.  You do not want the movers and packers to accidentally pack something you plan to throw away, sell or donate. Our previous article covered some tips to help you determine what to take with you including determining which items are still functional and deciding whether or not you still have a use for it.  Here are two more aspects to consider.

Is It Still In Style?

Decide whether or not the items you wish to keep are still in style. If not, ask yourself if you are comfortable with them anyway. If the answer is, “yes” and you plan to utilize them, then keep them. However, if you never plan to wear that high school jean jacket that you have been hanging on to for decades, then it may be time to get rid of it.

Is Moving It Practical?

It is always important to consider the practicality of moving some items.  Sometimes moving them is not of any benefit and would result in issues and expense. Maybe you still have your sleeper sofa from 1990 that is bulky, heavy, requires three people to carry, and takes up a good amount of room in the moving truck. Unless you are attached to this sofa or have a defined reason for keeping it, now may be the time to let it go.

Our next article will cover more tips to help you determine whether you should keep an item for your movers and packers to handle or if it would be more advantageous to sell, donate, or trash it.
