Do I Still Need This?

Wherever you are in the country, it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll see someone around you moving next week. It’s that time of year again where leases are up on August 31 and new ones start up the next day.

All of us have probably moved in some way, shape, or form, and with that comes the inevitable question: do I still need this? It could be kitchen appliances, workout equipment, and/or clothing to name a few. How do you know when it’s time to say goodbye to something you probably haven’t used in years?

Forbes.com recently posted six different ways to part ways with items you probably don’t need anymore. The six ways are:

  1. Evaluate everything
  2. Scan for dust
  3. Challenge tendencies to collect and hoard
  4. Practice letting go
  5. Donate and sell stuff
  6. Embrace friends and family

Also, don’t forget to switch your utilities over to your new place, along with changing your address with the post office and the DMV.

If you’re part of the moving crowd next week, take a deep breath and try not to stress out!
