Tips to Minimize Packing and Move Lightly
Moving is very stressful. Fifty percent of your stress comes from packing. By just merely looking at your things, furniture, and clutter will make you tired even before starting.  Here are some practical tips on how to move lightly and minimize your packing:
If you will look at all your things, at least a half of them is not being used. Only half of these is being use everyday. This is the reason why you need to get rid of these things in order to save your effort and time when you start packing.
Try to follow the one-year- rule. It will help you decide on which items needs to get rid of. The one-year-rule states that anything that you did not use for the past one year should be thrown away. 
Another trick to help you decide if you will throw a particular item is when you are in doubt if you will keep it or not should be removed.
Items that are broken and you kept promising yourself to send it to the repair shop but never did should be thrown away.
Separate your things to items you will keep and items that you need to get rid of. You can have a garage sale to all the items that are in the "get rid" area.
You will be surprised how liberating it is to get rid of the things that kept your cluttered. You will see how you can save time packing minimizing the things that you need to bring when you move.
