Moving, by its very nature, is a very daunting and stressful thing, no matter how you go about doing it. Leave yourself plenty of time to do things, and don’t procrastinate. It’s also important to make sure you carefully figure out ahead of time what supplies you will need, including how many boxes of different sizes, what kinds of packing materials, and so on. You can use moving as an opportunity to evaluate what you own and get rid of things you no longer want or need.
- Not leaving everything to the last minute during your first move can alleviate stress.
- Going through your belongings and getting rid of stuff can help make a move easier.
- Moving requires lots of supplies, such as boxes, tape, and a moving van.
