Get Rid of Junk Before you Move

One of the unexpected benefits of last-minute moves is that they force you to be ruthless in how you sort and pack. And this is a good thing, since the more stuff you get rid of, the less you have to pack and move, which ultimately means you spend less time and energy. Some people think that to save time, they should just pack everything they own and sort it later. If you haven’t used it or worn it for a year, give it away or toss it. Get the whole family involved by having them follow this rule while sorting through their stuff. If you hesitate when deciding whether to keep or toss something, take this as your answer, and toss it.
