The place you live in now is no longer good enough for you, and its time for a change. Maybe its time to have a little more space and start a new chapter in your life.
But the problem is you loathe the process of packing and moving. You’re not alone, most people hate the idea of moving as well. But to have that new start, you have to do it.
Moving can be a chore, and if this is you, here are some tips on how to make moving easy for you.
In This Post:
1. Start Packing Immediately
One of the biggest problems for moving is procrastination. You think it is a daunting task so you put it off. But the reality is that the more time you procrastinate, the less time you have to pack, and makes the task that much more difficult.
If you want to make moving day easier, tackle the task in increments and you will succeed.
2. Pack the Toughest Rooms First
In those increments, tackle the most difficult rooms first. This will make the endeavor seem easier in the end.
These may take a bit longer, but if you start with them it will be a boost to your effort when finished.
3) Consider Movers
Most people prefer using friends to help with moving. But they don’t come with insurance if they break or lose something in the move. Moving companies like Greatland Transportation do.
If something is lost, companies can compensate, and you will find that their expenses are well worth it.
4. Separate the Needs from the Don’t Needs
When we get settled in a place, we always tend to get a lot more things than we had when we moved in. Most times, the things we buy aren’t things we need. And these things can be notoriously hard to get rid of when you move.
Separate your things into three categories:
If it hasn’t been used or worn for over a year, either give it away or throw it away. Don’t think about it either, because you will end up keeping more than you need.
5. Pack The Essentials for You to Carry
Don’t think, just pack. You will not be able to bring everything that you want. Only pack what you will immediately need. And not just clothing, but personal hygiene items as well as medications that you may need, and refill those prescriptions.
This will help to mitigate any confusion about what is lost and what will be needed.
6. It Will Take Longer Than You Think
Understand that packing will take time. Allow yourself to be emotional and realize that there will be things you just cant take.
Things are replaceable and you should allow yourself to process through it all, not just the actual packing but the separation anxiety as well.
Make Moving Easy
Sometimes it’s hard to make moving easy, but that doesn’t make it worth doing. Moving does not have to be a herculean task. Tackle it in increments and make It happen. You can do it.
