De-Clutter Before Moving Day

If you are planning on moving over the next few months then chances are that you've already started to think about a moving strategy. Moving is never easy and often requires a significant amount of forethought.

One of the very first things that you will need to consider is how to pack up all of your belongings. It can be overwhelming to think about boxing up your entire life and transporting it from one location to another. However, the packing process of moving can be a lot easier if you de-clutter throughout the process.

Our local Alabama mover has some quick and simple moving tips for you to consider that will help keep moving day as stress-free as possible.

Use the 3 box rule. Bring 3 medium size boxes into each room. Use one box for stuff that you'll keep, one for stuff to toss out, and one for stuff to donate. This will help you sort your belongings in an efficient way that will guarantee you will de-clutter.

Start an essentials box. Use this box to store all of the things that you use on a daily basis such as; toiletries, medication, toilet paper, hand soap, etcetera.

Check expiration dates. When cleaning out your fridge or pantry check expiration dates. Often people forget about food items that they've bought and have expired goods that need to be thrown out.

"Do You Need it Rule". When packing up your belongings think, "Do I need this?" or "When was the last time I used this item?" If your answer is "no" or "months ago" then those items need to be thrown out or donated.

We hope that these helpful moving tips help your moving process go smoothly. As always remember that Elite Moving Co. LLC provides reliable moving services across the state of Alabama.
