Long-distance moves can sometimes take you from one climate to another. When you are moving from somewhere warm to somewhere cold, there are several things that you should consider for the move. My blog will provide you with information that will help you get through this big change with few problems. You will learn about how to pack up your things to protect them from the change in temperatures and what you should pack in your vehicle so that you have it readily accessible while you make the trip from your old home all the way to the new one.
Do you have a lot of stuff around your house that you don't really need or want but don't want to let go of for nothing? Instead of living with all of that stuff until your big spring cleaning purge, you can use the winter to begin sorting through everything and getting organized for a spring yard sale. Here, you will learn how to take advantage of winter's dreary weather and make the most of an early spring yard sale.
Rent a Storage Unit
Storage unit facilities, such as Foothills Storage, offer a great solution to the many people that have too much stuff for their homes. Instead of cramming all of your yard sale items in a room, basement, garage or attic, rent a storage unit.
Find a unit that isn't far from your home. This way, as you gather things from around the house, you can make a quick trip to the storage unit each time your trunk is filled and drop it off in the unit.
Note: If you don't have a good place to hold your yard sale, talk with the storage facility management to find out if there are any regulations that would prevent you from holding the yard sale right there on the grounds of the storage unit. This could help you enhance the location of the yard sale and draw a better crowd and eliminate the need of transporting things from the unit to hold the yard sale.
Packing your Unwanted Items
As you gather and sort through your unwanted items, take a few minutes to clean each item up nicely. Then, get out a roll of masking tape and stick a price on each item. If you are unsure of how much to charge for something, log onto online auction sites and look the item up. Look at the going rate for the item, as well as how much items like it have sold recently.
Note: Using online auction prices will help you get a good idea of how much to charge, but remember that if you want to get rid of things quickly, price them lower than what you find online. You don't want to be stuck with everything because you asked too much for it.
After everything has been cleaned up and priced, box it all up carefully. Try to keep everything in good order so that you can quickly set up the day of your yard sale. Put all of your housewares in one box, toys in another, and so on. The more organized you are while packing, the more organized your sale will be.
This process may take some time, but when spring finally comes, your home will be cleared of all of the unwanted stuff you don't need and you will be prepared to make enough money to possibly pay for a little summer vacation for yourself.Share
