Fighting Your Inner Pack Rat

When it comes to moving, chances are you will have to down scale your belongings. Some people are serious pack rats and just keep everything they have ever owned. In most cases stuff just accumulates over time and gets piled up. With our busy lives, we neglect to make the time to sort through all of the stuff we no longer use and probably no longer need. When people move they can be shocked and over whelmed by all of the stuff that has amassed in their home. This collection can be bags of clothes, boxes of magazines, paperwork from 20 years ago, and so on.

Many people keep stuff thinking that they will use again someday or that they will need it right after they get rid of it. It is a mental game. People place a lot of sentimental value on the items they have collected over the years. It may be gifts from loved ones, clothes they met their spouse in, childhood toys, old school work, and the list goes on.

The best practice is to keep these collections in check before you need to do a rush sorting job. Seriously and objectively go through your house and separate everything into collections. Make a keep pile, a give away pile, and a discard pile. If you are one of those folks that think everything you own is a priceless treasure, you may need to ask your family and friends to help you sort and view your possessions in a different light. They can help you be objective and realize that if you haven’t worn a certain shirt in a few years, you can afford to let it go. The same thing for people who keep old clothes from when they were in better shape, who are saving the clothes for when they get down to their old size. The sad truth is that it probably isn’t going to happen.
