Fighting Your Inner Pack Rat, Part 2

Welcome back and let’s finish out this blog entry. We left off on a note on sorting through your items into keep piles and get rid of piles. Most people have more stuff than they need or use. This becomes overly apparent when people move from one location to another. Packing space will quickly be taken up and the cost of moving items will quickly add up. At this point you need to decide what needs to come with you to the new place and what can be sold, given away, and thrown away.

What you can keep and what should be given away will also be greatly influenced by where you are moving to. If you are moving from a house to an apartment, you will have to heavily cut down on your belongings. There are storage facilities, but they will have monthly storage fees. But if you have to pay to store items, you will give more thought to whether or not you really need these items.

Going to a house just across town is good and bad. You can move your stuff in multiple trips, but then you will be tempted to just haul all of your stuff over without downsizing your collection. Going across states or just short drives will help you to choose what is most important to you. Moving trucks have limited space and there may be charges for weight. In this case, only the items from your keep piles should be making it onto the truck.

The rise of all of these TV shows on hoarders has given people a good perspective on whether or not they have a problem. If they see a lot of themselves in the people featured on the shows, then now is the time to get help and remove the clutter from their home and lives.

I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.

While this subject can be very touchy for most people, my opinion is that there has to be a middle or common ground that we all can find. I do appreciate that youve added relevant and intelligent commentary here though. Thank you!

Looks like a very nice and interesting idea, but the problem is,  it will cost a lot to the homeowner to take services of a professional interior decorator.
