Week 3 of our feature on effortless moving! Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Donate any extra items you have left over from your garage sale. Books, clothing, appliances, etc. can usually be donated with ease. Investigate your local American Cancer Society branch, Salvation Army, or Savers. Elementary schools often need extra supplies like markers, pens, and construction paper. Women’s and homeless shelters typically ask for personal hygiene products. If you have plants, ask friends and family if they’d like to take care of them.
- Make sure you return any borrowed library books and clothing.
- Solidify your packing plans. If you decide you’re going to pack less than you originally planned to with the moving company, let them know. Also inform them if you’re moving any heavy or delicate objects like pianos or antique furniture.
