You just purchased a brand new home in Rockwall, Texas and you are packing up your all your belongings and preparing to move in. Make
the move easier by getting rid of any unnecessary stuff and clutter that has
collected at your old home.
Let’s face it, we all have a surprising amount of stuff that we
don’t really use or need. Why spend the time packing these extraneous
possessions, pay to have them transported and spend time unpacking them just so
they can sit in your new storage cupboards or garage collecting dust?
before a move will save you a lot of valuable time and money and the less stuff
you have the more space you can enjoy in your new home.
However, getting rid of stuff can sometimes
be an emotional and difficult process.
Tips to make the process go more
Don’t try to tackle the entire
project in one weekend – you will find yourself incredibly overwhelmed and
exhausted. Instead, break it into manageable chunks. Clear out the hall closet
one weekend, the garage the next weekend and the attic the following weekend.
Try to remove your emotions from the process. We tend to hang onto stuff
for much longer than we need to because we have sentimental attachment to it.
Remember that you will still have the memories, even if you don’t have the
A good rule to go by is that if
you haven’t used the item in one year, you probably won’t use it again. Of
course, this doesn’t count for seasonal items such as Christmas decorations.
Get rid of the easiest stuff
that you aren’t really attached to first. This will get you in the right frame
of mind. Save the really meaningful personal items until the end, as starting
with these items can be difficult and discouraging.
If something you own is broken,
make it a priority to fix it before you move or get rid of it. Don’t take
broken or unusable items with you.
You will likely be able to sell
a lot of the valuable things that you getting rid of. Try spreading the word
out to your local community, friends and family. If no one is interested, try
selling online or at a local auction.
If you have anything left over
that you can’t sell but is in good condition, donate it to a local charity so that it can benefit others.
With these tips, you should be able to move
into your new Rockwall home clutter-free, enjoying the freedom that comes with
having fewer possessions.

"I had the good fortune of working with Elena to find a home in a tough, tough market.
Elena very quickly grasped what my partner and I were looking for, and was able to find houses that were right up our alley. The market made offers and transactions real work; Elena was undaunted. She refused to let us get discouraged, and battled through obstacles to snag us a sweet, charming place to hang our hats!
She stuck through even after the deal closed, when some small issues arose... which we could not address as we were out of town.
This woman gets it done!"
