Top items to sell to help simplify your moving process  featured image

Selling your home and moving away can be stressful. Packing up all your belongings and moving them takes much time, organization and attention to detail. However, to lessen the strain of this task and perhaps make a few extra dollars, it pays to sell items that are no longer needed. 


Have an old couch, bookshelf or sofa that simply doesn’t fit the aesthetic of your new place or would take up too much space? It may be time to sell these pieces of furniture so they can be made of great use with another household or donate them to charity organizations.


Appliances such as  refrigerators,a washer and dryer as well as other home features can be too large to move to your new place. They may also prove extra difficult to move if your new home is far from your current one. 

For this reason, it may be more efficient and time saving to purchase new appliances or your new place, and sell your old ones, especially if you’re in a time crunch. There are many online services to advertise your appliances, however as mentioned previously, you can donate these items to charity. You can also offer them as an added benefit to whoever purchases your current home. 

Home decorations

Your home decor may be well-suited to your current residence, however it may not have the same impact in your new home. This may be a sign that it’s time to let these items  go to make room for new decorations.  

If you would like a more hands-on approach to selling these items, consider costing a yard sale or dropping them off at a local thrift store which can also be used as a tax deduction. 

Moving away can be stressful, however by letting go of the old, you make room for your new adventure.
