This post will identify some tips and tricks to help you in the moving process. Whether your moving apartments, houses, or across the country the process of packing everything and moving to a new location can be a source of anxiety for many. Here are 10 tips to help you when moving.
#1 – Start Early
Time will help you prepare and get organized. If you have clutter do not underestimate how long it may take you to purge.
#2 – Start with non-essentials
You will probably need your everyday items up until the day of the move. If you’re looking for somewhere to start, consider the non-essentials first.
#3 – Create a list
I would recommend this for any area in your life. Lists save lives! Stay on top of your to-do tasks by making detailed lists.
#4 – Use soft items for packing
Forget the costly packing beads, Styrofoam, & bubble wrap. Simply use your soft items for packing delicates.
#5 – Purge as you go
Do not be afraid to throw away any unnecessary items. If it doesn’t live in a place, it shouldn’t be in your space.
#6 – Label everything
Labels and tags will help you when organizing your new place.
#7 – Map out your new place
Another way to help transition into the new place is to map the space out before you get there.
#8 – Recruit friends
Probably the most important part of any move. Many hands make light work.
#9 – Give everyone a job
It’s your space, it’s okay to delegate.
#10 – Unpack and enjoy your new place
Use a systematic unpacking system and tap into your style to show who you are in your new place!
