4 Things to Ditch for the Move

Moving is hard work. Amid real estate stress, relocation fees, and the monumental task of packing up your life, moving can often feel like a neverending task. Make your move easier by leaving these things behind.

4 Major Items to Leave Behind When You Move

  1. Appliances. Many home sales stipulate that the seller leave behind major appliances like stoves, refrigerators, and washer/dryers. Even if it’s not written into the sale, parting with major home appliances saves a hassle when moving. More often than not, the appliances you used daily are in need of replacing anyway.
  2. fancy chandelierFixtures. You spent years decorating your home, so it’s only natural that you’re attached to fancy fixtures. But packing up the chandelier or hauling off an antique tub isn’t just time consuming, it’s considered bad form. If there’s a fixture you want to keep for sentimental reasons, make sure to clearly state that it’s not included in the sale contract.
  3. Gardens. Gardeners put blood, sweat, and tears into creating an outdoor masterpiece. But think twice if you’re tempted to dig up your favorite tree for your new front yard. Not only are you leaving a gaping hole in the garden, chances are the plant won’t survive the trip. Start fresh at your new place and let the new homeowners enjoy the fruits of your labor.
  4. Furniture. Before packing up the moving truck, walk through your new place and mentally place your furniture. If any of your current selection lacks a place in your new home, it’s time to let go. Instead of wasting money on a storage unit, ask the new homeowners if they could use it. Otherwise, call Mr. Junk to haul old furniture away.
