Regardless of the reason behind it, moving is always an experience that most of us dread and stress about. Some of these negative emotions can be dampened by few steps of careful planning and then executing that plan. Before you start packing, consider throwing away or donating some of the things you don’t really need. Get adequate packing supplies by carefully estimating what you need beforehand. Create a timeline that will have important dates marked, so you don’t run out of time.
- Before the move, get rid of any possessions that are broken or rarely used.
- Collect empty boxes (or rent plastic ones), pick a date, and hire a moving company.
- On moving day, pack necessities in a suitcase and take valuables with you in your car.
“Moving is always fraught with adventure, excitement, stress and expectations. After all, it’s a new beginning, which entails tackling many unknowns and embarking on new experiences. A new home can be symbolic for everything the future can and will hold for you and your family!”
