Tip 1: Separate into Three Groups

  • ——
    1. To Keep
    2. To Sell
    3. To Donate

For the ones you’ll keep:

  • Start packing them into storage bins so they’ll be more organized. By doing so, it still gives you access to them while making your room feel bigger and more spacious
  • If they still make your home feel cluttered, have them stored for a while in a storage unit.

Tip 2: Empty out your Closets

Start putting away clothes you don’t need and pack them up. If you’re selling your home, store necessary clothes in a suitcase for easier access, while putting away the rest in packing boxes.
