Streamline Your Move: Tips for Reducing Clutter Before You Move


The Best Moving Tips From NCMSS Movers

Moving to a new home is an exciting opportunity for a fresh start, but it can also be overwhelming, especially when faced with the task of packing up years of accumulated belongings. However, taking the time to declutter before you move can make the process more manageable and help you start this new chapter of your life with a clean slate. At NCMSS we understand the importance of streamlining your move, which is why we’ve compiled a list of helpful tips to reduce clutter before you embark on your next relocation.

  1. Start Early: Don’t wait until the last minute to begin decluttering. Start the process well in advance of your move date to give yourself plenty of time to sort through your belongings and make thoughtful decisions about what to keep, donate, or discard.


  1. Take Inventory: Before you start packing, take inventory of your belongings room by room. This will help you identify items that you no longer need or use, making it easier to declutter effectively.


  1. Use the Three-Box Method: As you declutter, use the three-box method to categorize your belongings into “keep,” “donate/sell,” and “discard” piles. Be honest with yourself about what you truly need and use on a regular basis.


  1. Consider the Size of Your New Home: If you’re downsizing to a smaller home, be mindful of the space limitations and consider whether certain items will fit in your new space. This can help you prioritize which items to keep and which ones to let go of.


  1. Digitize Documents and Photos: Paper clutter can quickly accumulate, so take the opportunity to digitize important documents and photos before you move. Not only will this help reduce clutter, but it will also make it easier to access important information in the future.


  1. Donate or Sell Unwanted Items: Instead of throwing away items that are still in good condition, consider donating them to charity or selling them online or at a garage sale. Not only will this help reduce clutter, but it will also benefit others in need.


  1. Hire Professional Movers: Finally, consider hiring professional movers like NCMSS to assist with your move. Our experienced team can help you pack, transport, and unpack your belongings with care and efficiency, allowing you to focus on settling into your new home.
