When the time comes around for that dreaded move from one house to another, things can get stressful and overwhelming. The key to eliminate as much stress as possible when moving house is to be organized!
To get the move from one house to another going, compile a list of what can be packed up first and what has to be packed up last. For example, you need your kitchen items like crockery, cutlery, and appliances for the duration of the last few days in your home until the final day of moving arrives.
Write a list of the things you don’t need during the last few days and pack those items into boxes, seal the boxes, and label them clearly so that when the time comes for you to unpack, you know exactly where in your new home it belongs.
All the furniture that you don’t need for the interim – move it! Get it out quickly, this way the stress of the move already begins to decrease as the load begins to lighten as and when you get things out of your old home.
Remember, you need to pack up are all your kitchen items that you needed to get you through the last stretch of the move. Wash up those dishes, wrap anything fragile in layers of newspaper or bubble wrap, pack it into boxes, label things clearly, and move!
The Final Stretch
In the end, all that is left for you to move is your bed and your overnight bag. Before you lock up and hand over the keys, do a once-over check to see that you haven’t left anything behind by accident in any room of the house. Take a deep breathe, and go to your new home feeling accomplished, stress-free, and ready for a new chapter of your life!
