Now whether you accept the fact or not, there is a lot of belongings that we own at our house. These belongings comprise of our memories, collectibles, things we do not need but lazy to dispose of and things that we think have a chance to get repaired (appliances to be precise). While living in the same house for years altogether, all of these keep getting accumulated, and it only comes to notice when you make plans to move houses.
Now everyone would agree to the fact that there are a lot of unused stuff at home that doesn’t need any place in the house and should be disposed of immediately.

It would only add to the unused clutter and nothing else.

If you do not remember the last time you used those belongings, there is the need to get rid of them almost immediately.

Avoid living with the guilt that you have disposed of something that your friend had given to you with all that love. You cannot help but get rid of it just so that there are no extra belongings to move with.
