HOW TO SAVE BY GETTING RID OF THE EXCESS

If you’re getting ready to move, whether you are trying to sell your home or you’ve already purchased a new one, one of the first things that tends to cause stress in the process is the fear of packing all of your stuff. Whether you’ve been in your current space for a few months or several years, you’ve probably accumulated plenty of things you use and love, and even more items you haven’t touched since you brought them home. Now is the perfect time to purge those items and start fresh in your new home with intentional decor and less clutter.

 

Here are some of the things you’ll save when you let go:

 

Save Time

 

Instead of waiting until you’re ready to move, start sorting through your items now. Sell, donate, or trash the items that you’ve decided don’t have a place in your future home. When you’re ready to pack up for your move, you’ll save so much time because you’ll have less to pack (and unpack).

 

Save Money

 

Maybe some of the stuff you’re considering letting go of is worth something. If that is the case, consider having a garage sale or selling your clothes to resale boutiques in your area. Donate or dispose of whatever you don’t sell. Not only can you make money, but you can save money by moving less stuff. You may be able to fit what you love into a smaller moving truck if you get rid of those items that have gone unused for years!

 

Save Energy

 

Sometimes items can take up a great deal of emotional energy. It is often in our nature to cling to things that may have meant something in our past but have no place in our future. Get rid of that baggage and create an intentional environment with positive energy in your new home.

 

Save Space

 

Instead of taking the clutter from your current place into your new home, save space by getting rid of it now. Open spaces in your new home will bring you peace of mind and joy.

 

If you've done all this saving and you're ready to save even more on a new home, give us a call!
