Why (and How) Should I Clear the Clutter?
Eliminating clutter is the hardest part of the moving and staging process. Many people are held captive by their belongings.
The trick is to never handle an item more than once.
Once you pick it up, evaluate it for one of the following categories and act accordingly:
Trash – It needs to be thrown away. No questions. Put it in the garbage
Donate/Sell – Designate a spot for these items.
Rehome -These items would be important to someone else in the family. Relocate them.
Essential – These are the items that are essential to you on a daily basis. Pack them for the move.
