Decluttering, Home Staging, and Storage Solutions for an Organized Move

Decluttering, Home Staging, and Storage Solutions for an Organized Move 

One word comes to mind when confronted with the idea of packing everything you own—overwhelming. Over 100+ years, Maffucci Moving & Storage has seen hundreds of moves and cemented a streamlined process with our customized decluttering, home staging, and storage solutions. Free up space in your mind and new home with our staging and storage solutions!  

There’s No Better Time to Declutter 

Moving is the ultimate opportunity to finally deal with everything you’ve accumulated at your place. The novelty oversized ice cube molds you got at the office White Elephant? A generic souvenir shop knickknack from your well-intentioned best friend? The stationary bike that is broken enough not to use but fixable enough that you will fix it one day? All these things have been collecting dust in your garage until now when you’re faced with a simple question with a tough answer: “Would I put this on the moving truck?” 

Less stuff means less money (and mental energy) spent on relocating things that you’ll get rid of anyway. It also gives you a fresh, clutter-free start in your new home and a minimalistic canvas to help sell your current home faster. According to an article by the Consumer Reports National Research Center, decluttering and organizing can boost home value by 3-5%. At Maffucci Moving, your clutter is our clutter, so we design a personalized, seamless plan to save you space and optimize your move. 

How Maffucci Moving Can Help Maximize Your Move 

Decluttering Strategies 

We understand letting go of stuff is hard. These tips make the process simple and pain-free. 

  • Know Your Goals Firstly, set realistic and attainable decluttering goals. How much time can I take to do this? How much do I need to get rid of?  
  • Keep Sorting Simple We recommend sorting your clutter into three categories: keep, discard, or donate. Those decisions are challenging, but there are ample resources available thanks to the boom of declutter culture shepherded by Marie Kondo. Numerous popular strategies have emerged; perhaps the best known is the KonMari “Does this spark joy?” method. However, there are various alternative strategies like The Becker Method, the 20/20 rule, and the Peter Walsh Method, so experiment to find the one that works for you. 
  • Feel Good About Saying Goodbye Give your pre-loved items a second life while helping someone in need by donating to a local charity. Donating is our favorite way to declutter—we support local pantries and community efforts like Move For Hunger to minimize food waste. Decluttering is a great way to give back to your community. 

Inviting Imagination: Home Staging Tips 

Staging your home is a compelling lure to potential buyers by letting them fantasize about what their life will be like in your home. It’s an effective emotional tactic. In fact, according to the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA), staged homes have been found to spend 73% less time on the market than non-staged homes, potentially saving sellers thousands in holding costs. Create ample space for the imagination by depersonalizing and neutralizing decor. Home staging furniture is helpful in making your rooms look inviting and open to a new owner’s vision. Don’t forget about first impressions – maximize curb appeal with small touches, like adding patio chairs to your porch or flowering plants to your garden bed to wow perusing buyers. 

A Place of Belonging for Every Belonging: Storage Solutions 

Even after whittling down your belongings, moving can make you feel like you have an avalanche of stuff that couldn’t possibly fit in your new home. But, with creative storage solutions and organizational tools, we can ensure that every belonging finds its rightful place. We prioritize efficiency and convenience by using a range of storage solutions, including storage bins, shelves, and baskets, to make the most of your space and maintain order. Consider renting a storage unit to house more oversized items during the transition. As a longer-term solution, we recommend combining style with space-saving functionality by investing in furniture with built-in storage. 

Maximizing Space in the New Home 

Now that you’ve arrived at your new home, it’s time to fit everything under your new roof without feeling cramped. We get creative with our storage solutions to efficiently use every nook and cranny in your unique home. We don’t forget to look up – we’ll show you how to make the most of those high-up spaces perfect for squirreling away odds and ends. And pro-tip: by arranging furniture thoughtfully, you can create a sense of cohesion and comfort in each room, from the smallest kitchen to the most overly expansive living room.
