Whether you're moving to another state, or just down the block, packing can be an ordeal. And when you're in the process of a move, you may find yourself wanting to purge a lot of items. "Ask yourself why you want to keep the item. Is it for sentimental reasons? Does it spark joy? If it's not for any of the two reasons above, chances are you can get rid of it," says Allison Dunn of Organized Spaces by Allie.

"Choose the 'best of' items and corral and sort like items rather than randomly tossing things out," said Angela Kantarellis, founder of AKorganizing.

Name: Jennifer DeBrincat, my husband, Brett, and our whippet, Jon Location: Everson, Washington Size: 1,032 square feet Years lived in: 24 years, owned I share our home with my husband and our 7-year-old whippet, Jon.
