It is time to switch things up and move to a new area. As much as this is an exciting chapter and trip to go on when you start planning the move, you could find that you own too many items, most of which are unnecessary. Cutting down on the amount of stuff in the home will help make packing easier, and also reduce the cost of having everything transported. In case you have no idea of how to go about this, do not fret! Below are some ideas by Chestermere movers that should guide you on how to declutter all the rooms in the residence.
This is a good place to start with since there are many places for excess items to hide like the back of closets and under the bed. Start with going through the closet and remove clothes that have not been worn for over a year, and do the same with the drawers. The best place to take all the clothes is to a local donation place if they are still in good condition.
This will be the fastest room to clean up since it does not have many crooks and corners. Throw away empty bottles, cleansers, and any other item that is not useful. One other way of de-cluttering the drawers and countertops are to put in drawer trays and extra cabinets in the new abode to avoid having too many things on the counter.
Go through the items that are in the fridge and cabinets, and you could find that there are lots of expired spices, empty containers, Tupperware lids that have no containers, etc. Throw away any food that has been in the fridge for too long, and check in the freezer if there is anything that has been kept in for too long and has become freezer burnt, therefore unfit for consumption. Think about how far you are moving, and if the frozen food will make it. Once you are done, pair the Tupperware with their lids so that you can get rid of the ones that no longer have any use.
This is the first place that people see when they get into the house, and so when it is cleaned, and everything is properly arranged, and when there is no clutter lying around, it gives a good first impression. Start by walking through the room and look for items that shouldn’t be there and place them at a corner on the floor. Once you are done, go through the pile and return the objects where they are supposed to be, and any item that is left behind and has nowhere to be should be thrown away. There could be some things left that could be useful, but you do not want them anymore. Instead of throwing them away, one can have them donated.
