The Big Move: Three Tips from The First Box to the Last Glance

Written by 

You’ve bought a new house, and you’re ready to move out of your current home. Things are frantic, there are more things to do than there are hours in a day, and you feel torn in a million different directions.

From house cleaning to packing, everywhere you turn there’s another task waiting for you, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Take a deep breath, slow down, make a plan, and enlist some help. Here are three things you can do during your move to make things a little easier.

1. Box by Room and Label Everything. It’s tempting to throw random things into boxes, especially if you’re feeling a time crunch, but resist it, because unpacking a thrown together box can be a nightmare. Take a box into a room, start packing. When it’s full (or too heavy to add anything else), close it and label it with where you intend to unpack it.

2. Housekeeping Services. Many housekeeping services have additional services you can use in addition to or separately from any other services, including cleaning for a move. If the idea of cleaning every nook and cranny before you move out is stressful, don’t! Let professionals who know how to make your house look incredible do what they’ve been trained to do! 

3. Checklists. There’s so much to try to keep up with during a move that a list is best, even if you’re not generally a person who uses them. Put everything on that list—packing, cleaning, changing your address at the post office, buying new shower curtains—whatever needs to be done, add it and check it off as you go.

All moves are stressful to a certain degree, so anything you can do to decrease that stress is going to make the move a much more rewarding one.
