Moving tips of the day

  1. Get rid of EVERYTHING!!! Okay, maybe not everything, but the more unused and unnecessary items you eliminate from your home, the less stuff you’ll have to pack up, haul across town, unload, and organize and pay for.

Certified professional organizer Ward Blanchard from A League of Extraordinary Movers recommends clearing any clutter from your home as soon as you know you’ll be moving.

Be ruthless with your stuff. That skateboard you haven’t used since the 80″s,,sell it or donate it.

The very first coffee maker you ever bought that flavors your morning brew with little pieces of rust? Trash it.

Doing a massive preliminary purge will have the single biggest impact on the efficiency and ease of your entire packing process.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            2) Sort things out by category.

Organize your belongings by category, not by room (note that the category part only applies to the organization process, not the unpacking — that’s a whole separate ordeal).

Instead of spending a day cleaning out your entire bedroom, spend an afternoon sorting through every article of clothing you own.

Scour every coat closet, dirty clothes hamper, and laundry room until you’ve got all your clothes in one place. Then sort.

Do the same thing for books, shoes, important papers, and the like.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  3)  Schedule a free donation pickup.

Contact your favorite charity and arrange for pick up 1-2 weeks prior to your move to insure the items will be gone before your moving day. You can try selling your items first before donating them to help with moving costs.                                                                                                                                                                                                        For more helpful moving advice visit  or  call A League of Extraordinary Movers at 954-566-1270.
