Make time every day for dealing with just one area or one job at once. Start with the spots which are less used so that as you pack, you'll not skip those things. Even putting aside an hour each day will help complete the job.

Figure Out What Remains, What Will go and What Gets Donated

In case you have larger items which need to be hauled away, consider contacting a company to help pick up those things like lawn mowers or pieces of furniture. Should you have pieces for donation, schedule a day for the items to be picked up and add that day to your timetable so you have just a single pick up day for all contributed things.

Find Packing Materials
