Helpful Tips for a Smoother Move

Helpful Tips for a Smoother Move - Tips - Smoother Move - home

Your move to a new home should be an exciting time, not a stressful and overwhelming experience. So what can you do to improve your chances of more ups than downs in your move? Here are a few tips:

Make a Plan.  There are too many details to commit to memory.  Make a list of everything that needs to be done.  Include the timeframe for completion and assign responsibility.  As you make your activity list, also keep a running list of supplies that you will need.

Edit Your Belongings.  Take an objective look at furnishings, household items, and clothing – literally everything you own.  Decide what you don’t want or need anymore.  Discard items that are on the “not going” list, or hold a yard or garage sale and let others take those items off your hands.

Strategize when packing.   Organize items for packing in a logical manner.  This will come in handy on the other end.  For instance, group items that you use infrequently or that you won’t immediately use on arrival at your new place.  These include items like formal china or out-of-season clothing.  That way you can unpack these boxes at your leisure.
