Before you even move into your new home, it is important to know what you are getting into. Try to find or create a floor plan of the space, and take accurate measurements of the area. This will help you know what you can fit into your place and what you need to rid yourself of. If it doesn't fit or will take up too much room in your new place, there is no need to keep it. It will also give you an idea of how to organize your space before you've even moved in.
