It can be a challenge to clean out your home before one of the trusted long distance moving companies arrives, especially when it comes to your kitchen. Here are some tips for getting your kitchen area ready for the big move.
Use Your Food
Go through your cabinets and refrigerator and find anything that won't stay fresh in a moving truck - notably anything not in a can or sealed bag. Come up with creative meals that allow you to implement these ingredients so nothing goes to waste.
Sort Your Tableware
You may have acquired various cutlery, cups and plates over the years, or perhaps have duplicates of certain utensils. To help make the move easier, sift through everything and find excess silverware, plates and glasses that aren't worth taking up space in the moving truck. Anything you don't want can be donated to charity, recycled or thrown out.
Defrost Your Refrigerator
It's a good idea to defrost your refrigerator before you move to avoid any mildew growing as you transport it to your next house. FavoriteFreezerFoods.com recommends turning your fridge off and then getting some towels and a bucket to collect the water. You may also want to have a mop with you.
