It is not important which one, considering that when you are about to move to Little Rock, they've all got to be packed up. Every. Last. Piece. In the event it may seem like it's too daunting a job, remember that there's no need to undertake it by yourself--you can work with a professional mover to do your packing. Having said that, do you really want to pay someone to go through old shoes, toys, and great big outdated TVs which you have never got around to pitching? Maybe not.

Decluttering may be the concept that comes up the most on moving blogs, publications, and in general discussion--because it is the single best thing that can be done to make certain a smooth move, and a clean changeover to your new house in Little Rock.

If you have been uncertain up to now about getting rid of outdated items, allow the idea of having to pay to move what's in essence unwelcome rubbish to your new house keep you motivated to get set on sorting through aged stuff. Create three piles--throw away, give away, and keep.

· Anything that's defective, depleted, lacking pieces and parts, or perhaps outdated should really be thrown away.

· Lightly worn clothes, shoes, linens, furniture as well as kitchen things can be donated. Pack those belongings up, label the cartons, and get them to a charitable organization for recycling.

· You don't need a reason to keep things, however all those items which made the cut should have a reason. Making you happy is a reason, holding on to a vase you've never enjoyed simply because it belonged to Great-Aunt Edith isn't. If your mom gives you a hard time, give her the item.
