There are many benefits that come with moving into your first solo apartment. However, considering the space will likely be smaller in size than a place shared with roommates, the move to a solo spot also requires some sacrifices. In a small living space, it’s best to keep around only what you really use and need. Some household items to consider throwing out, donating, or moving into storage include any obsolete technology like old phones or computers, any clothes you never wear, old sheets and bedding, holiday decorations, old magazines, and other items that typically contribute to clutter.
- Minimize your collection of CD’s, DVD’s and video games. Most stuff can be streamed.
- Don’t lug around old furniture just for the sake of keeping it, especially if you don’t need it.
- Get rid of old kitchenware that is not needed and is crummy.
“A good rule of thumb when packing up your kitchen is that if it’s made out of plastic, its gotta go.”
