Does Moving Always Have to Be Stressful?

February 25, 2015 / Buying

No! Moving into your new home should be an exciting prospect, not a stressful one. Here a few tips to make the moving process a more efficient and dare I say…enjoyable experience!

1. Start Organizing
I know it is hard to resist waiting until the last minute and throwing everything into the closest box….but taking the time to organize and group your belongings now will save you countless hours in the unpacking process.

2. Pack Room By Room
Group your belongings according to their room. This will simplify and speed up the packing and unpacking process.

3. Be careful!
Make sure you pack breakables appropriately. I know…its amazing how expensive a roll of bubble wrap can be. To keep the costs down, try using your own towels, sheets, and shirts.

4. Pack with a Purpose
Do you really need to pack that VCR gathering dust in the basement? Get rid of the stuff you don’t need by donating it, selling it online or hosting a yard sale.

5. Take an accurate inventory
You took the time to organize all of your stuff so make sure you label it! Number all of your boxes and note what is inside.

Hopefully these few simple tips will make your move that much easier. Congrats on moving into your new home!
