How to Sort Your Items before Moving Day

Moving to a new home is a great opportunity to start fresh by purging all the unwanted items you may have accumulated over the years. Getting rid of items before you move will make your move go smoother, and it will also help you to reduce the clutter in your new home. How do you decide what stays and what goes? Here are a few tips for how to effectively sort through your household items before a big move.

Items to Keep

The most important thing about sorting through your items before moving day is deciding what things you want to keep. Here are some basic questions to help to figure out what is worth taking with you to your new home:

  • Will this item be useful in my new home?
  • Does it still function properly? Does it need a repair?
  • Is it easily replaceable?
  • Does this item hold sentimental value?
  • Will it be used frequently in my new home?

Depending on the answers to these questions, you’ll have a better idea of what to keep, what to throw away, and what to put in storage.

Items to Throw Away

Objects that are broken and can be easily replaced should be thrown away. However, don’t throw everything you don’t want in the trash—just because you don’t want something, doesn’t mean someone else wouldn’t like to have it. Items that still function but get limited use can be sold, given away to friends, or donated to second-hand stores.

Items to Store

Storage is a great way to hang on to those items you don’t want to part with but don’t have an immediate function or place in your new home. Items with sentimental value, seasonal items, extra tools and kitchen equipment can all be stored with comfort and ease. At Migson Public Storage, we offer secure and climate-controlled rooms in variety of sizes, so you’ll be able to find the storage unit that works best for you.
