Use the Swedish Death Cleaning Method To Prepare For Your Move

J.E. Thomas & Sons Located in Jacksonville, North Carolina Have Been Making Moves Stress Free Since 1985. They Share Seven Tips to Help You Prepare for Your Next Move.
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. - Jan. 28, 2020 - PRLog -- Eddie and Beth Thomas, owners of J.E. Thomas & Sons, share seven tips to help you prepare for your household move.

Thomas reminds us that "Moving can get expensive. De-cluttering is the first step to help keep costs down. January is a great month to focus on de-cluttering since you probably will be in your attic or storage unit, putting away holiday decorations."

1. Focus on one room at a time. Make time for deep cleaning and purging.

2. Make your piles – keep, donate, or toss. If you find something that you borrowed, return it.

3.  When examining an item, think about what your children will do with it. Will they keep it, donate it, or toss it? If your children do not want your china collection, stuffed animals, or books, it may be time to consider donating them or selling them.

4. Vital records, tax records, and must keep documents. I recommend scanning these items before storing them in a fireproof box or plastic tote. Label the box, tote, or storage device large enough that its contents can easily be identified by you or family when you arrive at your new destination.

5. Understand the psychology of why you are keeping certain items. Again, will your family members want them? Do you use it now? Are you holding on to it due to sentimental value?

6. Do not hold on to the toss or donate piles.

7. Make a plan not to bring new items or clutter into your home. Before buying something, ask yourself if you need it.

Keep in mind when hiring a moving company, you are paying for your mover's time, packing materials, and the size of the truck needed. Being organized is one way to save on your moving costs. Don't keep the movers waiting while you sort items for them to pack. Do not pack items that you will throw away or donate when you arrive at your destination. There is no need to pay for a large truck when a smaller one may work. For more tips on getting ready for your move
