Shipping is expensive, so it makes sense to ship only what you need and will use in your new home in Israel – now is the time to start cutting back.

This means that it is just as important to sort your clothing, toys, and dishes as it is to debate bringing the sofa and dining room set. Remember that your home in Israel may well be smaller, and let’s face it, if you haven’t used it in the last 12 months, you probably don’t need it anymore.
