Getting Through the Packing
The great thing about Home Stagers is that they make the nightmare of packing and moving feel organized and effortless. Stagers explain how to sort through all your belongings and decide what to keep and what to through out. They also hire movers and packers to help with the move, and to top it all off, they arrange for off site storage if needed.
When you’re packing and sorting through the mountain of belongings you may have, the golden rule is: if you haven’t used it in 6 months, through it out! …or put it in storage if you must. Keep anything that can be renovated or repurposed to stage the property. Home Stagers try to utilize as many pre-existing items as possible. They love to see an old familiar piece of furniture become transformed from used and bruised to new and stylish.
To simplify the packing process sort all your belongings into these categories:
- Storage, and
- New Home.
Don’t drag garbage to your new home and take up valuable storage space. This is a time you have to be brutally honest with yourself about what you need to keep and what you don’t.
