I have moved quite a few times in my adult life. Some were easier moves, such as across town, and some more challenging, such as moving across the country (and into a small apartment from a much larger house!) Like most people, I still hate moving and packing, but I have learned quite a few tricks to make it go smoother. I would like to share some of my tips for organizing a move.
My tips fall into three categories:
- Declutter (you can do this anytime!)
- Plan ahead: Figure out what you need to do, including researching and managing your movers (if you need to hire help)
- Pack your boxes in order of priority (items you use often should go into the same boxes)
