Items you no longer have room for

If you are downsizing to a smaller house or apartment with less storage space, holding on to all of your belongings can lead to a cramped home. Consider getting rid of clunky furniture pieces that will take up too much space in your new home.

Items you don’t use or have no meaning to you

This one is obvious, if you no longer have use for an item and it doesn’t hold any sentimental value to you, then you should get rid of it. It could be that boat that you haven’t used in years and is taking up space in your garage or a ping-pong table you haven’t used in ages. If there are any items that you don’t see yourself using within the next few years, it belongs at your next garage sale or in the garbage.

Dated clothing and electronics

If you have clothing you haven’t worn since you graduated high school or still have a VCR player collecting dust, then you should take moving as an opportunity to get rid of those things.
