Let’s start off by admitting that moving house can be a stressful time. With everything happening all at once, it’s definitely something you don’t look forward to. Not to mention the thought of filling your lifetime worth of paraphernalia all into measly cardboard boxes, and then having to try and find a local storage solution that will accommodate to your needs.
But don’t’ worry. There’s a solution.
With the right planning and preparation, home moving doesn’t need to be a tiresome chore. Just take a moment to see past the hectic packing/moving phase and look forward to the new positive change in your life.
We’ve rustled up top tips to help reduce those stress levels!
Make a plan!
The worst thing you can do is to leave everything last minute and then rushing around trying to get things done, as time gets closer to the moving date.
Plan ahead and stay organised so you have a list of all the tasks that need to be done by moving date. You can then split that list into multiple weeks giving you enough time to complete everything on the list in a week.
This weekly plan will help ensure you stay on track and on top of all the tasks.
This is your perfect chance to get rid of those old closest-space-wasters that you’ve been clinging onto for years. This will not only save you money on the move but it gives you more space in your new place.
It’ll also ensure that you only pack the things that you really need – The less you have to move the better!
Lists and labels can be super-handy during the moving process to keep track of all your stuff on the move.
Get yourself some sticky labels and stamp each box with a short list of contents, so that you know what’s exactly inside, without having to open them up each time.
Store your goods
Sometimes with everything going on, there may be some delays with moving the dates, so you need to make sure you have a backup plan in mind. Local storage facilities are great for keeping your goods safe and secure. Plus it saves you the hassle of moving all the items in one go.
Treat yourself – you deserve it!
During this stressful time, we often forget ourselves and begin to neglect our health and well-being. It’s just as important to make sure you are getting enough rest and sleep so that you have the energy for the long day ahead.
Take a break and use the time to and explore the new area with the family.
