What To Do

01

Purge before you Pack. Gather your items by category (i.e. linens, pots and pans, sweaters, books, etc.) and make piles to donate, sell and toss. Start weeks in advance as this step will take some time, but will make for an easier and less stressful move.

02

Sell and Donate. After you’ve decided you’re ready to part ways with an item, get it out the door as quickly as possible. My go-to resources for selling online:

  • Clothing: Thread Up

  • Electronics: eBay

  • Furniture: OfferUp, Craig’s List

  • Donations: For larger pieces that you want to donate, schedule a pick-up from the Salvation Army weeks in advance.

03

Stock up on Supplies:

  • Boxes: check with family/friends, local grocery stores, your office, etc. be
