Moving to a smaller apartment or house? Well, then you’ll probably need to downsize. As a residential moving company that serves Morris County, NJ, UMEX Moving & Storage has years of experience assisting homeowners packing and moving their belongings into the new places that they’ll call home.
If you’re moving into a smaller space, consider these tips below.
Give it the Axe
Inevitably, you’ll probably have to get rid of quite a bit of stuff when downsizing between spaces. The size difference will determine just how many items you need to relieve yourself of, but don’t worry—you don’t have to to get rid of that couch you love (we’ll tell you what to do with it later). Instead, focus on things you haven’t used in some time and wouldn’t mind throwing away.
Donate Your Belongings
Like we said before, items that have been sitting in your old place collecting dust for ages can be let go. But instead of throwing them in the dump, let them have a second chance at life with someone else. Many charities take donations as furniture, electronics in good condition, and even other appliances that just need a bit of fixing up. You could also consider donating a few items from your wardrobe to maximize closet space.
Rearrange Your New Place
In your old place, you might have become accustomed to the space used to accommodate your belongings. In fact, you could probably have your items well spread out. But when downsizing, you need to make some changes. That’s not a bad thing! This can give your new space a cozy, warm, and inviting feel.
Invest in a Storage Unit
Here’s another great idea—say you don’t want to part with your things just yet, but rearranging won’t work because your place is looking a little crowded. Storage is a great way to hold onto your items without having them messing up the “feng shui” of your new place.
