6 Things You Need to Get Rid of When Moving to A New Home


If you’ve decided to sell your old house and make the shift to a brand-new home, that’s great news! But the process of moving in and making yourself comfortable is time consuming. And if you want your house to have that brand-new feel, then some of your old things that are just dead weight taking up space simply have to go. What better time than now to do it?

Kitchen Tools

You might have hired new house builders to complete your house’s design to look impeccably stylish and elegant, but it doesn’t account for much if you ruin that gorgeous view by cluttering the space with senseless items. All the mugs you’ve got as presents but don’t use, any chipped mugs that just collect dust, or tools you already have duplicates of can be donated to someone who needs it more. By freeing yourself up so much unnecessary space, your open shelving scheme is going to look absolutely beautiful!

Old Pillows

What better time to invest in a new mattress and pillows than when moving into a new home? Old pillows take in a lot of sweat, dead skin cells and dust. If your skin has also been experiencing terrible and consistent breakouts, this could be a reason why. Your body’s reacting to unhygienic/toxic materials you keep close to your face each night.


Product packaging, old cards, wrapping paper scraps and other paper-based items that you don’t need have to be chucked. Your bills would ideally have been digitized by now, saving you from having to deal with an accumulation of paper-based bills as well. Don’t forget that any magazines you’ve been stocking up can be donated as well.

Kitchen Spices and Condiments

Things in the kitchen have a way of accumulating for months. Somehow, they find themselves moving further and further to the back of the cupboard or perhaps they even lie out there in plain sight and in the hustle and bustle of daily living you just let it sit there- even though you know you can’t possibly use it anymore. Since you’re shifting houses and you have no choice but to get rid of what you don’t need, now’s the perfect time to get rid of these lingering pasty products.


Now’s also the perfect time to get rid of any unwanted clothing you have. You can donate anything in good condition to thrift shops and bin the rest. Now’s not the time to get sentimental- if you’re not going to wear them, then its best that it goes.


From lotions to makeup and perfumes with deteriorated scents, all expired products simply have to go. They’re dead weight and there’s no point going through the trouble of shifting them from one place to another if you can’t even use them anymore!

These are the 6 most important things you need to get rid of when making that transition to a new home. We guarantee it’ll make a significant visible difference and will help give your home that brand-spanking-new feel!
