Getting Rid of Junk Before the Big Move

Shredded Papers Junk

Moving to a new house or apartment can be stressing, especially if you have to organize, pack, and unpack a lot of stuff. Since you are under pressure to carry less, moving time is one of the best times to declutter and get rid of things you don’t need in your life.

You first have to know what you want to throw away before calling a junk pick up agency. Here are some simple tips to help you identify garbage and put it where it belongs: in a dumpster.

Identify Real Junk

Sometimes, real junk gets lost in the potentially useful trash. Rummage through your house or garage and identify things that you will never use: a pair of old boots, an old lawn mower, and so on. If you don’t see yourself using something at first glance, toss it in a junk pile before you are tempted to hoard.

What Do You Want among All that Junk?

Asking yourself why you are holding onto something is a great way to separate real junk from useful stuff. If you are holding onto that damaged valve radio hoping to reuse the tubes one day, why not just pluck out the containers and throw away the rest of the junk?

Identify the pieces you need and extract them from the junk. This will considerably reduce your current pile of clutter, leaving you with a systematic collection of parts that you can use.

Once you get rid of the stuff that you don’t need, ensure that you clean and organize what remains. If you can clean up that old stereo set, reassemble the lawn mower you took apart, or arrange old flower vases in a box, you will have converted your valuable relics from junk into a collector’s paradise.
