How to Declutter When Moving: Make It a Cinch With These Smart Tips

Getting ready to move house is always a challenge. Having a solid plan can help keep you on target and make sure your move goes off without a significant hitch. Decluttering should be near the top of the list when you make that plan, so I’ve put together some pointers to help you with how to declutter when moving.

Garage Determining a starting point is always the most challenging part of decluttering before a move. In most cases, the best place to start is in the garage. The idea is to create a useful space for storing boxes and bins as you pack, and the garage is okay for very short-term storage.

Craft Room I know… it probably hurts your heart to think about decluttering anything from your craft room. I put it second on the list because you’ll likely have to work on this room just a little at a time.

Closets Decluttering your closets can be challenging, especially if you have been in your home for several years. Career changes, parenthood, and fitness hobbies can profoundly influence what is hiding in your closets.

Bedrooms If your children are young, try to enlist help from friends or family members. Ask if they can take the kiddos on a trip to the park or out to lunch while you work on the kids’ rooms. Throw away all of those hoarded Happy Meal toys and anything the kids have outgrown.

Don’t get overwhelmed at the prospect of decluttering your entire house JUST to get ready to move. Yes, it’s a big job… but you were going to have to touch every one of those objects anyway to pack them. This way, you won’t have to spend time and energy to deal with them AGAIN later.
