Declutter While Moving Out
Do you ever wish you could start again? It’s easy to look at your closet and think ‘I’d love to start with nothing all over again.’
Revamping your entire wardrobe would cost a small fortune, but it’s likely your closet is full of clothes you no longer like, that don’t fit or have had their day.
A declutter could be just what you need to slim down your wardrobe and be able to focus on your best pieces.
If you’re moving out and want to enjoy a fresh start, take a look at some of the ways you declutter and doing more with less.
1. Focus On Each Room at at Time
Clearing out your entire home can feel like a huge task. But when you break it down into one room at a time, it gets easier.
If it makes it easier, why not do a 15-minute clutter sweep in each room of your home?
Get some boxes ready for the items you no longer want, and be ruthless! The more you get rid of now, the easier it will be to pack when you’re ready to move.
2. Pay Special Attention to Your Closet
Your closet can be one of the trickiest things to declutter, but it’s a great excuse to slim things down and make it easier to put outfits together.
Going through your closet is a fantastic way to appreciate what you have, and perhaps rediscover some long-lost favorites too!
Building a capsule wardrobe can help you adopt a signature style that you can mix and match with some new pieces each season.
A capsule wardrobe makes it easier to get dressed in the morning. It gives you an excuse to treat yourself to some high-quality pieces.
Get clever with how you dress in the mornings! Style tips are great for finding inspiration and are ideal for helping you do more with what you already have.
3. Think Sustainably
When it comes to clearing out, try to think sustainably. There are a lot of things you can do with your unwanted things, from selling them on marketplaces like eBay to donating them to goodwill.
If there are things that can’t be sold, nor donated – look at how they can be recycled.
You might find that some things in your home just need a new splash of paint or a minor repair to look good as new again!
4. Enjoy the Results
After you’ve finished with the decluttering, you now get to enjoy the results! Book MyBekins movers to take care of the rest so that you can enjoy a stress-free move!
With fewer things to take with you, it’ll be much easier to pack up and get ready to enjoy your new place.
