The best option is to either donate it, if it is in good shape, or throw it away. It will make packing a lot easier for your next move.
If you are planning to move soon, it is best to group like items together, so that packing will be a breeze. Arrange all toys, cookware, electronics, and like items in one area. That way, when packing time comes, it can go directly into the boxes, instead of being packed elsewhere. When unpacking you will thank yourself for doing this.
