When the time comes to move, it is a good time to go through your possessions and try to get rid of some things. Not only will you have fewer items to move (or store), you won’t continue to move items that you haven’t even looked at in ages.
However, this is easier said than done. It can be really hard to figure out what you should keep and what should go.
Here are some tips to help you decide what you should keep.
- Sentimental items. You shouldn’t ever get rid of any items that are sentimental to you. Keep one or two pieces of baby clothes that your children wore. You should save your grandmother’s quilt, along with her nice dresser.
- Photographs. Photographs are all that we have left of the people that mean so much to us. Our houses too! So make sure that you keep all of your photographs and albums, no matter how heavy they are!
- Furniture. Even if you are moving into a smaller place for a few months (or longer), you might want to hold onto your furniture (even if you have to store it for a while). Good furniture lasts for a long time. It is also expensive to replace so you might regret getting rid of some of your furniture when you need it again.
Trying to go through your belongings can be challenging. It can also bring back a lot of memories. Because of this, you should always try to keep your photographs and some items that are sentimental to you. You won’t regret keeping these items. You may also want to keep your furniture. Because it is expensive to replace, you might regret selling some of these items.
