There
comes a time in many of our lives where we have to downsize. Whether
you are starting off college in a dorm, moving in with your significant
other, or trading in your spacious home for a more cozy apartment,
sometimes you just can’t take all of your stuff with you.

And
that’s okay. At 866-We-Junk-It, we are experts in getting rid of
junk, so we are here to help you. This is how to downsize as quickly and painlessly as possible:
Decide what is truly
important.
If
there was only one rule to downsizing, this is it. Figure out what
you can and cannot live without, and pack accordingly. If you are
having trouble deciding whether something is worth keeping, ask
yourself these two questions:
  • Have
    I used it within the past year?
  • If
    I lost everything I own in a fire, would I bother replacing this
    item?
Move quickly and move
early.
Don’t
wait until moving day to start the process – this will only
overwhelm you and lead to one of two things: keeping a bunch of stuff
you don’t need, or throwing out a bunch of stuff you do. Start the
downsizing process as soon as you plan your move, and once you decide
something is garbage, get rid of it as soon as possible before second
thoughts kick in.
Give your old stuff a
second life…
…and
maybe even make some money doing it. Just because you don’t have a
use for something, it doesn’t mean that someone else won’t. Host a
tag sale or use websites such as eBay and Craigslist to sell your goods which are still in working condition. If no one wants to
buy them, donate them to a local charity or thrift shop. Only throw
away that which has no other use.
