If you haven’t worn some clothes in the past 5 years, maybe you won’t be wearing them at all. So, look at your wardrobe and sort all the things that you don’t fancy anymore or are old fashioned. While packing, check your other possessions – cupboards, drawers and boxes. Take the items that are broken and worn out in order to save some money. These might be things you’ll never use in your attic, old toys forgotten in the basement. Make a good selection of what to take with you when moving.

Why will this tip be useful? The final price is defined by the weight of the items you are moving to your new home.
