After the initial shock of it all, you may start to panic. You may be excited for the new job or new location, but scared at the same time. You may have kids who have to move as well and that can get complicated too. So what do you do after you realize you are moving?
You breathe. Then you realize you have to make a few decisions.
What did we do with the books?
After the purge
Final Purging Tip
Always keep a donation bag or box handy so as you go through each room, it is ready to go. I find it easier to simply remove the items from the room and place it in the hallway. That way, I can visually see what I have left to work with in the room. This helps me stage the room and get it ready for pictures. I also recommend working in one room and then moving onto the next. If that is too much of a challenge, start with a corner of the room and move in a clockwise direction around the room. That way you know everything has been touched.
Once the donation bag/box is full place in your vehicle so the next time you leave the house, the items are ready to go. If you still need staging help after your purge, please contact me for a staging consultation so we can get your house ready to sell!
