When you’re in the process of moving from one house to the next the one thing that you’ll quickly realize is just how much stuff you have. Even in the times where you feel like you’ve purged and decluttered the rooms of your home, you still wind up with things that you haven’t seen in years or can’t remember where you acquired them from.

If you have found yourself in this position, a garage sale might be exactly what you need. If you’re not entirely sure how these two things correlate, keep reading. In today’s blog, we are going to touch on a few of the ways that having a garage sale can be extremely beneficial before your move.

Minimize the Clutter

It’s amazing how many things you can acquire in a short amount of time. Even though it might not feel like you have more than you need, you will slowly start to realize that is the case as you begin to pack and come across things that you either don’t use or don’t remember having. By having a garage sale, you can ensure that there is less clutter in your new home. What a refreshing way to start the next chapter!

Pack Less

Clutter is something that you’re going to have to deal with in one way or another. You either wind up packing it up and hauling it or you take advantage of the garage sale and make some money off of it. While it can be tough to part ways with some of the items that you find throughout the packing process, you will find that you wind up packing much less, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Fresh Start

Packing and unpacking are very rarely fun. The one thing we can say, however, is that unpacking your belongings and watching your new house develop into your home right before your eyes is pretty exciting. Given that this is a new chapter in a new house, it’s always good to start fresh. Garage sales are a great way to clean your belongings up of the things that you no longer need so that when you do move into your next house, you’re really making the most of the new chapter and not just bringing extra baggage along.

Extra Cash

Moving is time-consuming, but it can also be expensive. If you’re looking for a little bit of extra cash to pay for storage, put down for new furniture, or hire professional movers, the money that you make from a garage sale could be enough to cover the cost. It might sound crazy, but you’d be surprised how much you can make by selling some of the items that you’ve had tucked away for years. And besides, it’s always good to remember that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
