A Move is a Great Time to Purge Belongings

When you’re preparing for a move, you’re probably only thinking about the amount of belongings that has to be transported from one residence to another. You go room by room, packing things up, and even if you haven’t used or worn something for years, you still put it in a box or suitcase. At Billy Goat Moving in Fort Collins, we’re ready to move as many things as you need, but a move is a great time to purge some of your belongings. Whether you donate them, give them to friends, or simply throw them away, it can be encouraging and therapeutic to rid yourself of excess belongings.

Find a New Home for Furniture

When you’re getting ready to move into a new house, you might be looking at buying new furniture as well. While that can be exciting, you’ll also need to find a new home for your old furniture. That shouldn’t be too hard, and the buy/sell ads in the paper and online classified listings can quickly grab people’s attention, especially if you’re selling a chair or couch at a reasonable price. You’ll want to be sure you’re pricing things based on age and condition, since you could encounter some picky people who don’t want to overpay for a well-used easy chair.

Sorting Through Those Old Clothes

Clothes can often be the easiest, and the hardest, things to purge. You have items that you bought at a certain store, or were given to you by someone special, and even though you don’t wear them anymore, you want to hold onto them. On the other hand, you have apparel that has been hanging in the back of your closet for years, and putting those items in a bag and taking them to Goodwill® or the Habitat for Humanity® ReStore is the easiest thing you’ve ever done. With your clothing, it can make sense to donate what no longer fits your style (or fits at all), and keep what you still wear or will wear in the near future.

Moving can be stressful, but when you take the time to sort and purge some of your excess stuff, it can make moving day much easier. You’re ridding yourself of those things you’ve carried with you for years, and that can have tremendous benefits. At Billy Goat, we’re ready to carry, load, and unload anything you need us to, and will do whatever we can to make your move enjoyable.
