August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #203: The Moving Rule - Give it Away or Throw it Away

Tip of the Week

When moving into a new location and deciding what goes and what stays, the rule is: If you have not used it in a year, either give it away or throw it away.

It is silly to pay someone to move something you don't use like old furniture, old magazines, clothes you don't fit into, and other items you have not touched in a year or more. If you haven't used it in the past year, chances are you will not use it again.

Remember that getting rid of items does not mean that you are getting rid of the memory.

Giving your unwanted possessions to the Salvation Army or a charity can also be used as a tax deduction.
