Moving forces you to come face to face with all your stuff. What better time to decide what goes and what stays. You may have the urge to throw everything out rather than taking the time to organize your goods and either donate, sell or recycle them.

Below are a few great alternatives dumping your goods in a landfill site:

  • Sell your goods online. most people will come to your home and pick up your unwanted items right from your home. Both  Kijiji andEbay are easy ways to sell used goods online.
  • Hold a yard sale. Take a weekend to sit back relax and get rid of all your stuff the good old fashion way.
  • Donate your good to a charitable organization. Go to Charity Villiage to find the charities in your town or city that will accept furniture or clothing donations. Also look for drop-off and pick-up information on this helpful site.

If dropping off unwanted goods ask your movers about scheduling an additional drop-off on the day of your move. This is a great alternative to making several trips with your vehicle. It will save you time, money and reduce your carbon footprint!
