Moving is sometimes inevitable, and the reasons for move can be positive or negative. Regardless of what makes you move, the experience is quite stressful, as you have to deal with many logistical issues. There are some steps you can take to make this easier on you. Find a mover early and call utility companies in advance. Set your budget based on realistic expenses and start getting your packing supplies early, as you may realize you will need additional material while packing.
- Get rid of clothes you haven’t worn in a year and items you wouldn’t buy again.
- Use suitcases for packing, and use linens and towels to wrap fragile items.
- When unpacking, start with the kitchen and put on some music.
“The best way to pack for moving is to start earlier, rather than later.”
