Ready to rock your upcoming residential move? It’s all about the organization. These tips should help you make your move as efficient and pain-free as possible.
Whether you are feeling overwhelmed or excited about your upcoming residential move, one thing is certain—ready or not, it’s coming. Time is of the essence, and the most important thing you can do to prepare is getting organized. Not having a moving plan in place will leave you feeling frustrated and you are more likely to forget important steps.
Never fear. These top two organizational tips will help you get your ducks (and boxes) in a row, so you can feel good about your move:
Tip #1: Start Packing Now
Procrastination is the mover’s worst enemy, and it’s a tricky beast. You may think you are putting off the pain by waiting until the last minute to pack, but it really just leaves the concern weighing on your mind and makes the process much more difficult later.
Instead of waiting, start as soon as you can. Start packing up unnecessary items, such as:
- Home decor and display items that you don't need in daily life
- Out of season clothes and shoes
- Items in storage and things you have stuffed in closets that you are not currently using
The earlier you can start packing, the less you will have to worry about in the final days of the move.
Tip #2: Purge, Purge, Purge
Now is the time to throw out the items you are no longer using. There’s no need to move items that have been sitting in a box since your last move. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t used an item in two years, it’s time to give it away. Haul items away to a thrift store or charity that can use them. The less unnecessary stuff you have to load in boxes to move, the better.
