The thought of moving all of your belongings from one home to the other can be intimidating, especially if you’re moving long distance. You’re probably wondering where to start, how much money it’ll cost and how to stay within your budget. One of the best ways to stay in your budget is by remembering one simple fact – you don’t have to move everything. Here are some things you should consider when deciding on items you should bring with you and items you should sell!
How well does it function?
If the item functions pretty well and it’s something you use on a frequent basis, then you should move it. However, if you have a laptop you use every day but it has a poor battery life, then consider selling it. You’ll probably have to purchase a new one soon anyway, so you may as well make some money and save extra money on the move.
Is it expensive to move?
Always sell items that will cost you more to pack and move it, than to replace it. That way, you can make some money and fill your home with brand new items!
Does it have sentimental value?
Items with sentimental value are hard to eliminate. Even if you may not use them or they don’t function well, it can still feel impossible to get rid of them. If it really pains you to sell some of your sentimental items, keep them. Nevertheless, if you want to lower your moving costs, try your best to leave some of them behind.
Will it fit in your new home?
Check out the floor plans in your new space. Take some measurements and find out what will fit so that you don’t overcrowd your space with all the items from your old home. This is especially essential to consider if you’re moving from a house to a condo. The furniture that belongs in a house, definitely isn’t always suitable for a small condo or apartment. So, make sure that you don’t waste your money and move expensive furniture items that you don’t need! Sell them and buy new furniture.
