20 Items to Toss Before You Move

August 27, 2018

Mom and son decluttering If you're planning a move to a new home, one of the top ways to ease the process is to declutter before you begin packing. After all, new digs mean a new start, and there's no reason to hang on to anything that won't have an active role in your new life. To help you get started, McKendree Moving & Storage recommends these 20 items to toss or donate today:

  1. Items still in boxes from your last move
  2. Magazines or books you've never read or won't read again
  3. Clothes that you haven't worn in a year
  4. Never-worn clothes that still have price tags
  5. Clothes your kids have outgrown
  6. Toys your kids haven't played with in ages
  7. Gifts you received but never used
  8. Projects you started but never finished
  9. Expired food items
  10. Expired medications
  11. Tax-related paperwork and receipts more than seven years old
  12. Anything broken, torn or otherwise busted
  13. Anything you've got too much or too many of
  14. Anything that won't fit the style of your new home's decor
  15. Old product boxes
  16. Takeout menus, especially if you're moving to a new town
  17. Cheesy specialty coffee mugs
  18. Outdated technology (You know you still have a floppy disk or cassette tape hanging around)
  19. Knick-knacky souvenirs and touristy t-shirts
  20. Rusty tools
