Moving can be a huge life experience and it helps to break down all the complicated steps of moving into small checklist items. It also helps to group tasks based on time frames of work like preparing to move, and moving day. In preparation for a move one should focus on organization, research, and administrative tasks. During packing one should concentrate on packing a little each day, sticking to a system, and not forgetting essential items. On moving day, one should stick to a plan developed in the planning phase and go a steady pace.
- Make a checklist, set a budget and make sure that you stick to it to allow for proper organization and finances.
- Figure out if it would be beneficial to you to use a professional moving company and if so, make sure it fits your budget.
- Try to declutter your home before you pack so that you won’t have to pack as many items and can be better organized.
