How to Declutter Before Moving

2 February 2015

At Fire Dawgs, we love all things house and home. Seriously, just check out our Pinterest Page. So, we were reading this article on ways to raise the value of your home’s listing. One of the tips was to Declutter. Of course! Many of our customers call Fire Dawgs Junk Removal because they need their homes cleaned out before listing their homes or before moving into a new home. A clean and organized house will always sell quicker and hopefully for a higher price. Now, without further ado, here is how to declutter before moving.

How to Declutter Before Moving

1. Sort Your Clutter

Start by starting through the items you don’t think you need anymore. Make piles. We suggest you make piles for the following: things to donate, things to give to friends and family, yard sale, and throw away. Many professional organizers and self-proclaimed “clean freaks” (like this blogger 🙂 ) suggest parting with all things that you don’t need or you don’t absolutely love. Ask yourself: Do I absolutely love this? Does it spark joy? Is it necessary? If you answer “no” to these questions, get rid of it! Of course you can always call the professionals at Fire Dawgs if you need help removing your cluttering and donating your unwanted items.

2. Have a Yard Sale

Moving is expensive. After all the fees, renovations, and moving costs- the old bank account might feel (or just downright be) a little depleted. Having a yard sale before you move might help ease your moving expenses and help you declutter at the same time. Look for more information about how to have a yard sale before moving.

3. Call A Junk Removal Company
