Moving day is fast approaching and your professional movers in Maple Grove will be at your home before you know it. One of the best ways to start getting situated for a move is to declutter and downsize. The less you have to pack and move, the less you will have to worry about unpacking and organizing when you get to your new home and the less your professional movers will have to move. Taking the time to declutter and downsize could save you hassle, and even a bit of money, in the long run. And getting all of this taken care of before your professional movers arrive means less stress on you come moving day.

First, take a look at your belongings. Go room to room and ask yourself one question: If you lost all of this, what would you want to replace? Start jotting down notes of the big items you want to keep vs. the ones you want to throw away. And then follow through! Donate or sell the big pieces you don’t want or need anymore.

For smaller items, like books, movies, etc., start sorting them into three piles: keep, donate and throw away. Try to do this task as quickly as possible and don’t over-think it. Go with your gut and whatever decision you make first. No sense in drawing out this chore any more than you have to!

For clothing, it is a longer process but regardless, it’s a good idea to do this when you can, even if you can’t get it done before your professional movers arrive. Simply turn your coat hangers around so they are hanging up back to front. Any time you wear an item and hang it up again, turn the coat hanger around so it’s facing the right direction. After a set period of time (3 to 6 months is usually a good time frame), get rid of the clothes that are still on hangers that are facing back to front.

Your professional movers, and your pocketbook, will thank you for taking the time to declutter and downsize!
