Your Guide To Downsizing Your Home
Are you getting ready for a big move that’s going to mean downsizing your home in Scottsdale, Arizona? Are you wondering what needs to happen before the movers show up? If you’re preparing to move into a smaller space you’re going to be downsizing, and that can be a daunting task for some. It can be a little tricky as at first it seems like you’re not going to have to move as much around since you’re moving to a smaller space, but the whole process can actually take longer than a traditional move. So we dive into the tips and tricks to best downsize your home and today we look at how to make that happen.
Moving your entire life into a smaller space can be difficult if you don’t have a clear starting point. So here are 3 easy steps to help you navigate this process.
First thing you’re going to need to do is clean up. Before the movers in Paradise Valley come in a start hauling everything away you’re going to need a little bit of cleanliness. That’s right, it’s time to organize ALL the big and little things cluttering up your home. Make sure to make two piles, one of things you want or need and the other is garbage. What are you going to throw away? What doesn’t need to make the move? What can be left for the moving company to take care of? For example, if there are any worn out clothes, broken electronics or appliances or just any old thing that no longer works properly then it needs to go. It’s clutter and it has no place in the moving van in the 85253 area. Many times there are donation organizations that will come and pick up all your junk for free, so be sure to do your research. Getting rid of all of these things means less junk that you’re going to have to pack up and haul with you.
Second, check the forgotten rooms of your home. Do you have an attic, spare bedroom, garage or basement that is full of forgotten belongings? Go straight into those rooms and start emptying them out. Chances are you’re like everyone else and those rooms go filled up with things you have no use for anymore. So single out some rooms in your home. Again, you can donate it all and have the associated moving company in Paradise Valley pick it up for free, you can just haul it all to the dump or you can even schedule a bulk pick-up with your local garbage man and have them haul it all away for you too.
Remember, just because you’ve forgotten about all this stuff doesn’t mean it’s gone away. The movers Scottsdale 85255 are going to take everything on the trip. You’re going to need to make sure it all finds a place before the moving company gets there.
Lastly we have the family car. Many times our cars are a magnet for items we have forgotten about or simply stashed away. Clean it out. Roll up your sleeves and start tossing all the junk you’ve been collecting in the trunk, under the seats, etc. Don’t be shy when throwing these things away. If you’re downsizing move is to be successful you must be decisive and make sure ALL of the stuff lying around your vehicle gets thrown away. You’ll be glad you did when your new, smaller residence is clutter free. And the movers at the Scottsdale moving company will appreciate the preparation.
So that’s about it. Of course we know it can be difficult to part with some of your things. Even if you’re not using it anymore it may still be of some sentimental value to you and that’s OK. Just prioritize what you want, why you want it, if it can fit in your new home, etc. So just take a deep breath, and start organizing. Start separating the good, the bad and the ugly. If you’re no longer using something you can ask yourself if you’re ever going to use it again, or that maybe there is somebody else that can really use it. And if you find yourself with a whole bunch of clutter, relax. This means you’ve done a great job and have identified what is important and what is just taking up valuable space. Your new home is going to be a little bit cozier than your last if you’re truly downsizing. And this is an opportunity to really find out what you can and cannot live without.
