Consider How Easy Something Is to Replace
While there are some items that are easy to determine if you should keep them or throw them away, you may find yourself on the fence about a few items. There may be some things you just don’t use that often or that you’ve kept because you like it, but you’ve never actually had a use for it. For these items, consider how easy they would be to replace if you decided to donate it or throw it out. If you could replace the item fairly easily, consider giving it away. However, if the item is something you can’t buy anywhere, consider keeping it.
Provide a Pick-Up Deadline
As you start to go through your belongings, you may find decide to part with furniture or other items to save space. Many parents may decide to offer a few items to their children or grandchildren before they throw them out. If your family members decide they want some of your items, consider giving them a deadline of when they can pick it up. The last thing you want is to be stuck with old furniture you no longer need, especially when you’re trying to consolidate everything for your move. Give your children the ultimatum that they can have the items, but only if they pick them up by a certain date. If your children or other family members really want the item, they will make sure to pick it up.
Invest In Multifunctional Furniture
When you move from a larger home to a smaller one, it can take some time to get used to living in a smaller space. One way to help keep your new home more organized once you make the move is to invest in multifunctional furniture. Multifunctional furniture is just as its name sound — furniture that serves more than one purpose. One of the most common examples is an ottoman that opens up and has a place for you to put movies, blankets, game controllers, and any other items you may need. Having a few pieces of multifunctional furniture can help you save space and make your new place feel less cluttered.
