Preparing for an upcoming move? At Baymeadows Movers, our experienced Jacksonville Florida movers understand how complicated it is to move an entire household.

When it comes to preparing for a move, staying organized will help you spend less time packing, allowing for a smoother transition. According to Jacksonville Florida movers, here are 10 things you definitely don’t need to bring with you to your new home:

  1. Perishables and expired products

Check your fridge, freezer, pantry, and kitchen cupboard for perishables. You should ditch anything that’s either expired or expires soon. Likewise, inspect the bathroom cabinet and get rid of expired vitamins and medicine that may be hazardous.

  1. Worn shoes & clothes

Go through your closet before the final packing and sort your old clothes and shoes. Let’s face it, any item that’s too worn out or doesn’t fit should be left behind – you might as well give it to charity or recycle it.

  1. Bathroom & bedroom items

The same goes for old or torn linens, sheets, or punctured towels. If your shower curtain is too old, and most likely too moldy, toss it away and get a new one.

  1. Unused dishes & utensils

If your kitchen cabinet is filled to the brim, you can easily throw or donate any mismatched or cracked plates, cups, glasses, pieces of cutlery, pans, and other items.

  1. Obsolete electronics & appliances

Basically, outdated and unused devices only make more clutter. You might want to get rid of anything that is obsolete or beyond repair including old landline phones, answering machines, VHS players, kitchen TVs, broken turntables, and so on.

  1. Old children’s clothes, toys & games

Moving is an excellent excuse to throw away all that baby gear, toys, and clothes your kid has outgrown, especially if you’re not planning to have a second or a third child. Sure, you’ll want to keep some items that may have a sentimental value, but tossing everything else will allow you to declutter and have more space in your new home.

  1. Damaged furniture

It’s best if you opt to dispose of any broken or damaged pieces of furniture, they would probably not survive the move anyways. It’s much better if you can just get new ones instead.

  1. Storage clutter

Whether you’ve chosen to store all your junk in the basement, the attic, or the garage, now is the time to go through it all and toss anything that you haven’t used in ages.

  1. Old bills & receipts

Since you’ll be living in a new address soon enough, you certainly don’t need to save any bills or receipts attached to your old home.

  1. DIY décor

Most likely, you will not have much use of anything that was made specifically for your old place such as lighting fixtures, wallpapers, curtains, and similar items.
