Why Moving Is The Best Opportunity To Declutter You Home
Your moving company might not tell you this, but decluttering will have numerous benefits to your life. In addition to making the move easier, you’ll also get to enjoy benefits of having a clutter free-home. Most people know that de-cluttering helps. However, we all like to give excuses why it is not the best time to do it and we conveniently postpone the process to some later date. If you are planning a move in the near future, it’s time to do away with all these excuses because you’ll not find a better time to declutter your home.
Let’s look at why this is the best time for decluttering.
You will still need to go through your home anyway
If you have always wanted to declutter but for one reason or another you couldn’t find the time to do it, then this is the best time for it. Think about it: You will still need to go through each room, checking all items that are inside and deciding where each will go. Rather than sending items you don’t need to a box for shipping to your new home, place them together and prepare to dispose them.
You will be rewarded with a lower moving estimate
We understand. It’s not easy to declutter. You have to think about where each item will go and sometimes we have sentimental connections to some of the items. However, you will be rewarded for doing it by getting a lower moving cost for your move.

Your moving company bases the cost of your move on the weight and volume of the shipment. What this means is anything that you can remove from the items that will need to be taken with you will mean less cost implications for you.
You will also save on packing supplies
If you manage to get rid of half the items in your attic it means you will need fewer boxes for packing the items and fewer blankets for wrapping the fragile items. If you are the one handling the packing, you will also get to save time in the packing process, and when you reach your new home, the unpacking process will be shorter.
If you have paid your moving company to do the packing and unpacking for you, your bill will be lower because the process will not need as many man-hours as it would have with all the unwanted items.
You get souvenirs for your loved ones
A move usually means that you will be leaving some friends behind. You can use your unwanted items as gifts that they will remember you by when you are gone. You just need to make sure that you choose wisely to ensure that everybody gets something they will treasure.
Clutter can easily weigh you down when you are making a long distance move. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be so because you can declutter and enjoy numerous benefits both in the moving process and in your new home.
