Kitchen Items To Chuck When Moving

One of the added benefits of moving home is having the chance to go through all your belongings and get rid of things you don’t use anymore. Here are our tips on what you should throw out from your kitchen so you can move into your new home with a fresh, clean slate.


  • Food

Nobody wants to be wasteful about food, particularly as the UK gets rid of 9.5 million tonnes of consumable products every year, despite 8.4 million people living in food poverty.

However, most of us are also guilty of keeping food in our cupboards that are well past their Use By date.

Megans Moving stated: “Anything that is expired may not be safe or healthy to consumer, so it’s important to get rid of it before you move.”


  • Surplus items

Novelty mugs seem to fill kitchen cupboards over the years, even though we probably only tend to use our favourite two or three. Save space by getting rid of any mugs, china or saucers that you haven’t touched in a while.

The same goes for extra utensils or those you don’t really use that much – pineapple corers, strawberry hullers, spiralisers, and various types of garlic crushers might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but how often do you actually use them?

As Apartment Therapy says: “Moving is a great time to take stock of what you have. Sell, donate or give away any excess.”

  • Unused appliances

Let’s face it, how many of us have beadmakers, popcorn machines, or blenders that rarely see the light of day? If you haven’t used your electric grill, ice-cream maker or food processor in the last few months, the chances are you won’t in your new house either.

So, now is the ideal time to donate your air fryer or steamer to charity and make space in your cupboard for other, more useful, items.
