What Can You Do To Make Your Move Smoother?
Moving is no easy task. In fact, for some people it can be one of the most daunting and difficult things they do. Make the transition to a new home easier on yourself and those around you by following these simple steps to make your move go as smoothly as possible.
Moving can be very overwhelming, so stay ahead of the chaos by keeping a list of things you need to accomplish or remember. Keep something with you at all times to jot thoughts and reminders down. You can use a simple notebook or your cell phone. Whatever you use, just remember to keep it with you and to keep all of your notes in the same spot!
Make a plan
Make a plan and decide just how you’re going to move out of one home and into another. Hopefully you know when you need to be out of your old home and when you can move into your new home, so start there. When does the packing need to be finished? Make sure you schedule the movers and know when they are available. This will help to keep you on task while avoiding getting too ahead of yourself.
Before you get too far into the moving process, it’s a good idea to tidy up your space. You don’t need to deep clean since you’ll be doing that once everything has been moved out of your home, but you should pick up the house as much as you can. Be sure to put things away in their proper place. Clean up clutter and throw away things that you aren’t going to move. If time allows go through your clothes and donate what you don’t wear anymore. If your space is orderly and organized, you will feel much calmer throughout the moving process. It will also make packing easier when everything is in its proper place.
Packing is one of the most daunting tasks in the moving process, but it’s something you really don’t want to put off. Start with the things you don’t use often like decorations, or seasonal items. Keep the items you use daily out and pack those very last. As moving day gets closer and you begin to pack more seriously, don’t worry about putting like item together. Instead, pack by room. Fit what you can in a box, add paper if it isn’t completely full so that the box is solid, and then tape it up. This will make unpacking a breeze!
