Moving out is not easy and for the most part, it’s very tiring. I moved out for 3 times already and I’m telling you, if I have known that it can be easier, I would have complained less. If you’re moving out for the first time (maybe from your parent’s house) and you need some things for you to get started but you would like to save a lot of money then go and check out some garage sales. You wouldn’t believe how many great items you can buy for a fraction of the market cost. move out cleaning colorado springs
Some people are just so desperate to get rid of the things that they don’t need anymore and they end up selling them for almost nothing. If you happen to find out about the garage sale on it’s last day then don’t fret because owners sometimes are too lazy to bring back old clutter into their house so they price the items so cheap and if you’re lucky, you might end up going home with free stuff.
One important tip I can give you is to have a moving-out checklist. This is one thing that most people forget that’s why they end up forgetting things. Having a checklist is a sort of reminder as well on things that need to be done first and foremost. Also, before you move in to the new apartment or new house, make sure that it’s all clean. Go through your checklist of cleaning products so you’ll know what to bring.
How about your things? You have to buy a lot of boxes unless you want to carry them one by one. 10 boxes will be enough if you don’t have a lot of stuff to move out with you but you can always get more boxes if you have to. This will make the whole process easier and more organized. Don’t forget your packing tape and bubble wraps for your fragile items! You can return unused boxes and give them away in supermarkets. Another tip to organize your stuff is to use color tags. You can label each room in the house and match it with the things inside the boxes. This will also help the moving company to identify where the boxes need to be placed.
Do you really want to move your old clutter into your new place? I don’t think so! This is your chance to clean up and finally get rid of the things you’ve been holding on to for years. You want to start a clean slate. A garage sale is a great idea so you can get rid of unnecessary stuff. What about valuable items and documents? I would put them in separate box and I’ll take them with me. It’s not that I don’t trust movers but it’s always best to safeguard valuables when you can.
