Moving is never a fun experience. Sure, the thought of starting fresh and making a new space feel like home is exciting, but the process of boxing up your things and coordinating with movers is exhausting. We’ve all been there, but we have some tips on how you can make your move a little easier.
- Good things come in twos – You may have heard that it’s best to begin planning for your move two months before the big day and get packing two weeks before. We’re here to tell you that this is the best way to take the stress out of your move. It’s common to want to procrastinate, but when you stretch out the process and give yourself little tasks to tackle each day, you’re more likely to enjoy the process.
- Make a list of everything you need to take care of – There’s a ton to do before the big move, and if you’re not careful, something can slip through the cracks. Make a checklist of everything you need to do. Include everything from updating your billing address to getting utilities and internet services set up in your new place and canceled in your old one.
- Pack room by room – It’s easiest to begin packing up your home room by room, and be sure you label everything. Trust us, you won’t remember which “kitchen stuff” box has the blender that you need to have ready for your morning smoothies, so mark down the room and some of the important things that are in every box.
- Measure your furniture – Not every home is created equal. You’ll want to make sure that your current furniture will fit in your new home. Look at the floorplan and begin preparing where items will go in your home. Your future self will thank you if you can drastically reduce the time it takes to unpack your home.
