What Not To Pack When Moving

1

Clothing

Clothing – It is easy to overdo it when it comes to packing clothes. Take time to assess what items you wear regularly or you are particularly fond of, and then donate or sell the rest. Consider the season or the weather in the location you’re moving to help you cut back.

2

Bulky Items

Bulky Items – DVDs and books take up a lot of space while packing, so as large electronic items like unused laptops/desktop computers, or DVD players. These are great things to donate or try to get rid of in a garage sale.

3

Papers

Papers – Obviously, you’ll want to keep important documents with you while moving, such as your marriage license, family birth certificates, and financial records. However, less important papers are an unnecessary source of extra weight – consider storing or scanning them onto your computer.

Bathroom Items 

Bathroom Items – Half of what is currently in your bathroom cabinets is most likely out of date, unimportant or easily replaceable. If you have expired medications, make sure you dispose of them in the safest manner as it possible.

5

Old Furniture

Old Furniture – Furniture is often bulky and heavy to transport. Moving to a new home may be the perfect opportunity to let some old pieces go. There are plenty of charitable organizations that could give your old furniture a new home, as long as it is still in usable condition.

6

Garage Junk

Garage Junk – Just like your bathroom cabinet, there are probably a lot of items sitting in your garage that you will never need. If these items include insect killer, fertilizer, and other potentially dangerous chemicals, make sure you dispose them safely.

7

Appliances 

Appliances – It’s quite possible that a new home means an update of your current refrigerator or washer/dryer combination. In this case you need to do something with your old appliances, a local charity would more than likely be happy to pick them up – provided they are operational, of course. This will also help your mover get you loaded and ready to go quite a bit faster.

Household Items

Household Items – Take a look around your home and make a note of what you use and what has just been gathering dust. Household items are perfect things to sell at a garage sale.

9

Bedding

Bedding – You probably have some old mattresses and blankets that need to be switched to new ones. Not only will the new bedding will be more comfortable, but you will have a lot more room in the moving truck.
