The removal company we have booked (even though we haven't sold or bought yet!) offer a service where they drop off a storage trailer at your house for you to fill when de-cluttering. They then call back and collect it, store it until you move, and then take it along with all your other stuff when you finally do move.
The trailer came this morning and so we spent the ENTIRE day clearing out cupboards, filling boxes and having a thorough de-clutter. I thought I was being quite ruthless. Any toys that hadn't been played with this year were packed away, as well as loads and loads of books and a few items of furniture. I also filled quite a few bags for the charity shop. Perhaps I should be even more ruthless when we move and see if there is anything else in the trailer that we don't need.
We had new carpets fitted last week in the living room, stairs and upstairs hall. The house looks great now.
The estate agent is coming on Monday to take photos of the house so I've just got a few more wee jobs to do before then.
Right now though, I'm going to collapse on the sofa and have a well earned rest!
