When you start to relocate your home, you will start to realize that you have lots of unwanted old stuff in your house. Most people will take advantage of this situation to either get rid of these unwanted items and declutter their new house or get rid of the unwanted items and buy new ones to replace them. However for some, they will not get rid of their unwanted stuff. They want to keep them for memory sake. What kind of person are you then? What are the things that you should dispose when you relocate? Here are some relocating tips for you.
Clothes that you have not touched for the past year
Do you have a lot of clothes that you only worn just once for that special occasion and can not find another reason to wear it again? You may be thinking to yourself, “I want to save this piece for another special occasion”, but that special occasion has not arrived for the past year. You know what? Get rid of those clothes! Donate them to the salvation army or sell them off on eBay.
Some time ago, you could have bought a couple of cans of paint to touch up on your wall. However, there were still quite a bit left and you could not bear to throw them away. Think about it. The cans of paint's integrity may not be there anymore. Get rid of them safely. Do not just dispose them into the sink.
Many of us keep old receipts and bills and can not seem to bear to throw them away. If you do not require them, get rid of them. But keep those receipts that you need to claim warranties or for tax rebates. And if possible, go for electronic billing for your mobile phones and credit cards. Do your part for the environment!
Many of us do not finish our course of medicine from the doctor and keep them for “future usage”. However, this can be life threatening! When you consume medication that has expired, they are less effective and can cause serious side effects. Throw them away immediately!
Old magazines not only take us space but also gather dust. Moreover, the chances of you reading a 1995 Reader Digest is near impossible. Sell them to the karang guni man and make some money out of it.
Kids nowdays have so many toys and they are not interested in most of them anymore. Get your children to gather all of their toys, decide which are the ones that they still want and donate all the rest.
After getting rid of all these wanted items, you can feel a sense of satisfaction when you see your home so decluttered and junk free. Although many items are for memory sake, you can always take pictures of them and keep them in your memory.
