Moving day can bring a lot of unwanted stress to an already busy day if not prepared for in advance. The best way to have an easy move is to prepare for the entire process of moving. Staying organized and motivated throughout your move is essential towards keeping your cool even after you’ve moved into your new home. Here are 5 moving hacks to help ease the stress of your move.
1.) Purge before packing
Many people make the mistake of packing more than they need to. This can be overwhelming when unpacking with items strewn all around your new house. Get serious about donating and selling unwanted clothing and other items before moving, instead of after. New home, new beginnings!
2.) Use rubber bands
Rubber bands will be your best friend throughout your move. When packing, you can use rubber bands in a variety of different ways such as holding pairs of shoes together as well as lids to their corresponding pots.
3.) Pack small boxes
While it may be tempting to pack the majority of your items together in large boxes, that’s not always the case. Small boxes are great for carrying heavier items, as large boxes can break, especially when many heavy items are placed inside of one box. Using small boxes for packing can also reduce the chance of injury when carrying them.
4.) One project at a time
When moving, it may seem like there’s always something that needs to be done. However, if you use this mentality when packing, it can be easy to fall into a negative pattern of working on multiple packing projects at once. This is not only inefficient but also can cause added stress leading up to moving day. We recommend coming up with a plan when packing such as packing each room up before moving onto the next or packing items by category, such as clothing.
5.)Select a good moving day
There are certain times of the year, such as holidays, that can present more challenges when moving. When scheduling your moving day, research beforehand if any local events could impact traffic or if it falls during a time where the weather may present issues.
