Things should be on the quiet side by this stage, which means you can start getting rid of all the belongings you don’t need. Think about donating before you throw away things you don’t need. Getting rid of clutter leaves you with the necessities that are ready to pack.
After you’ve decluttered, it’s a good time to start gathering boxes. There are plenty of places from which you can get free boxes, think supermarkets, liquor stores etc., and if you have to, you can always buy some at a moving supply company.
Six weeks before Moving Day
This is a good time to go through another round of sorting, especially in terms of the bigger items in your household. Getting ‘Keep’, ‘Donate’ and ‘Throw away’ designations for items will quickly help you to realise what your packing needs will be.
