If you are moving to a smaller home, you are probably thinking about downsizing, and getting rid of some furniture that you think may not fit.
But before you give away your furniture, we advise you to hold off on that until you have officially moved into your new place! The last thing anyone wants to do is to get to their new home, and realize that some of the furniture they gave away or sold could have been used.
Now, since you sold or gave away your old furniture, you have to go out and buy new furniture at a price that is probably double what you sold your old furniture for!
Those who have bought new furniture, know it isn’t cheap. So, wait until you are all moved into your new place to sell any furniture; once you’re all unpacked and everything is in place, you can sell some of that surplus and unneeded furniture!

Moving, of course, can be very stressful, especially if you’re not as prepared or organized as you should be on moving day. But if you organize your time, and start packing months in advance, and continue to pack in different spurts throughout the upcoming weeks, you will find that moving day won’t be as stressful.
If you’ve been pretty consistent on your packing throughout the past few months and weeks, this should be all that’s left on your to do list come moving day.
This list, will of course vary for each person, but try to strive to achieve this checklist at least one to two days prior to moving day:
- Laundry: Be sure that all laundry is done, so that all of your clothes are packed and ready to go.
- Disconnect all Electronic Equipment: Disconnect all appliances and electronics, and remove bulbs from lamps. If you are unsure on how to disconnect gas appliances, be sure to call a professional!
- Defrost the Freezer: If you are bringing the fridge to your new location, make sure you defrost and completely dry it out for transportation.
- Finish Packing: Put the finishing touches on all packing projects. Be sure to label all boxes to make unloading easier and more organized.

When moving, there are a lot of items that get left behind; why don’t you consider selling some of these unwanted items? Selling some of these items that you were just going to leave behind anyway, will put some extra cash in your pockets!
You can hold a yard sale, and sell some of these items to your friends and neighbors. If you don’t like the idea of hosting a yard sale, or if you just have a few items you’re willing to part with, try eBay and other online stores.
If you are donating these items, make sure you ask for a receipt so that you can file it with your federal income tax deductions.
Saving money any which way you can is a great strategy, especially if you’re moving.
