You need to de-clutter
Whilst it can be quite to hard get rid of things, the process of de-cluttering is actually very therapeutic. If you’re struggling to part with your possessions, here are three questions to ask yourself about each item
- Have I used it in the last three years?
- Is it something that’s old, outdated and easily replaced?
- Does it hold any sentimental value at all?
If you’ve not used something for a while, it’s safe to say that you’re probably not going to use it in the future, so sell it or give it away to charity, otherwise it’ll take up precious space in your removal van.
For items with no sentimental value at all, but you’re still not sure about whether to take it with you or not, have a look on eBay at what you could sell it for. The results may sway you into letting it go for some extra cash, which always comes in handy when you’re moving.
Use the cloud
If you have a lot of documents, why not scan them in to your computer. Then you’ll have digital copies of them that you can print out at a later date. But you may never find that you need to. Alternatively, there are plenty of cloud based storage options for you to utilize. Services like Google Drive, Evernote, Onedrive or Dropbox. However, don’t just start shredding things willy-nilly. Remember that certain official documents must be kept for up to 6 years.
It’s always hard to say how long de-cluttering your house will take, so it’s always best to start as soon as possible.
So, you’ve made a dent in what you’d like to take with you. You’ve completed your inventory. You know when it is that you’re wanting to move. Now is a great time to get in touch with Indalo Transport, as you are starting to get close to your move to Spain.
