You are one of the many people around the world who are not keen on the idea of throwing some of their belongings at all, ever. You go to a concert or to a movie, and you like it, you enjoy it so damn much, that the memories you’ve made are simply not enough and you decide to keep your ticket too. You received a wonderful perfume as a gift for your birthday from a nice friend, you haven’t seen in ages. It’s all gone now, but your heart breaks, when you try to get rid of it. You have millions of photos from your childhood, from your trip to Spain last month, from the time spent with your beloved, from your sister’s wedding. You have that one dress your mom bought you when you were 14, that was your first real dress and that is too old-fashioned now, but not enough retro, and you move it from place to place every time you rearrange your wardrobe, but never throw it away. Yeah, we convince ourselves that we are not dependent of some things, while in reality most of our belongings have too high sentimental value. And I won’t try to convince you to leave them before you move out, but give you some useful tips.
You had the flu last winter and you bought tons of medicines, because you have to be 100% healthy in a week for your ski holiday. Remember most of the drugs are not efficient for a long time and their expiration date is often too soon. So sort them out and get rid of all the useless ones.
We all buy clothes far too often and we have more than we will ever need. And for sure as we change and grow up, we start not to like some of them. And not all have some sentimental value, so get rid of them by recycling them or giving them for charity.
The past you belongings
You liked diving and you bought all the equipment you needed, you went in Greece and used it for a week, but then you somehow forgot this hobby and you haven’t done it in years. You then decided to learn Spanish, you got a teach-yourself book, a dictionary and even a Spanish cookbook, but your enthusiasm died right after your trip to Barcelona. Don’t collect this stuff, but offer them to some of your friends or leave them before you move out.
The too big ones
Well, this does not concern the situation, when you move out, but are going to live somewhere nearby. But if you go somewhere far away and you want to transport all the couches, armchairs, tables and so on you will have to give tons of money. However, you love your stuff so much that you don’t want to leave them, so give them to your friends, those who will appreciate them.
