Moving can be stressful and difficult, but don’t let all of that outweigh the excitement!
Make moving a better experience by following these three helpful tips!
1. Stay organized
It is extremely hard to stay organized during a move.
One great way to keep everything together is to make a designated folder with receipts, to do lists, and anything else related to the move.
Real Simple said, “Start collecting new addresses, rental or purchase papers, moving contracts, and more in one folder. . . If any questions come up during the planning process or the move itself, you’ll have the answer (and records of agreements, payments, and more) on hand.”
You’re already going through everything when you move, so it’s a great time to get rid of things you don’t want!
Make designated piles – pack, donate, and throw away.
Newswire said, “The last thing you want is to be stressed out trying to pack everything including items you don’t want to keep. Decluttering and knowing how to downsize your home will make packing easier and also make the move cheaper.”
A good rule is if you haven’t used it in over a year you most likely do not need to take it with you. For anything you want to keep that you haven’t used in over a year, pack them right into the storage bins that you’ll keep them in at your new place. Then, put an itemized list on the top so you don’t have to dig through bins later!
