You don’t have to be moving house to benefit from a good de-cluttering session.
But if you do find yourself pulling up your roots, here are 3 good reasons to start getting rid of what you don’t need:
1. Potential buyers for your home will view it as smaller and less desirable if you have too much clutter around. Frankly, when you list your home for sale and want it to look appealing, the less stuff, the better. Take a look at any space that’s been staged, and you’ll see why. And unlike having friends over for a party, buyers will be looking in all your closets, the garage, and probably the kitchen cabinets, too.
2. You might fool yourself into buying, or moving to, a bigger place than you really need. If you can get really serious about trimming back your possessions, you may surprise yourself that you don’t really need that extra room. And this could mean you can afford to move to a nicer home in a better neighborhood.
3. And finally, the most obvious reason to have a good purge: don’t put in the time, effort and cost to shift things you don’t need. Be honest: don’t you have boxes still sitting unpacked from the last time you moved? Or at least, bulky, heavy items that you never use? Imagine a box falling off the moving truck and into a river on its way to your new home. Would you replace the contents of the box? If not, that might be an indication that it’s not worth moving.
Take this opportunity to say goodbye and travel light – you’ll make a fresher start as a result.
