So moving day is approaching and you have MANY years of "STUFF" to sort through - where do you start! Ideally, you can go room by room, don't try to tackle everything at once and don't forget the outside too. Recycle, donate, sell, upcycle and any other way you can redistribute your unwanted items before you simply drop to the landfill tip.

    Bellow is a comprehensive list of items to sell, give away or donate before you start packing, ready to move. If you have the opportunity to have a garage sale this is another way of getting rid of any larger items and getting some cash back. With items like towels and blankets, there are always animal shelters that will be looking for these items.

    Clothing will always be accepted by charity's and if you have furniture in good condition they will often come and collect it from you too.
