As your move date approaches, one of the most important things you’ll need to do is decide what you will be bringing along to your new home. This is probably the toughest task in anyone’s moving to-do list as the decision to depart with some of your belongings is not an easy one. To try make things simpler, here’s a list of items you shouldn’t bring along with you:
1. Dangerous goods (flammable, explosive, and/or corrosive)
- New or partially used cans of paint
- Linseed oil
- Bleach products
- Gas cylinders, turpentine (unless emptied)
- Cleaning fluids
- Aerosols (any kinds)
- Vegetable oils
- Chemical sets
2. Perishable foods (anything that will go bad in a short period of time) such as cereal, flours, frozen food etc
4. Items you are hoarding – this is a good chance to get rid of all that baggage
When trying to decide whether or not you should bring an item with you, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I really need this?
- When did I last use this?
- How often do I use this?
- Is this a rare item to find?
