Moving to a new house is an exciting time with plenty of things to prepare and organise before you even start to think about packing. The only problem is that there is so much to do in our daily lives it can become a tricky balancing act. Packing is usually left to the final week before the move, but it’s also something you can start thinking about now. It’s a positive approach to declutter and reduce the number of items you’re relocating with soon and will no doubt help reduce your overall workload.
When it comes to creating space at home, one of the first tasks you need to tackle is clutter. No matter how vigilant we are, it only takes a few idle things here and there to start off the cycle. After a while, we end up accumulating so many things in the house; we transfer it to the garage or loft. And before we know it – the garage and attic are full, and we start sending things to the spare room.
There is a solution, but it involves some bold action. Additionally, if you know one who’s the main hoarding offender in the family, try and keep them out of the process. Otherwise, you’ll find items reappearing that you were sure you had gotten rid of. One of the best things about decluttering is being able to help others in the process.
