Work to a calendar
The most important thing when moving is to get the timing right. When you work according to a timed schedule then you can make the most out of the limited time you have before a move. Therefore, make sure that you divide and prioritize the work that needs to be done. Separate time to proper buy cardboard boxes, call movers and start packing. This way you will also be motivated to keep packing and going without becoming too exhausted with all that needs to be done.
One big mistake that many make is, that they keep postponing and procrastinating things for later. This not only adds more work and pressure towards the end, but also makes your life hard as well. Therefore, to avoid this, make sure that once you have things like your new home, moving services and such sorted out, getting packing immediately with large moving boxes. What most people assume is that it is ‘too early’ or ‘it is not the right time’ to start packing. But that is not the case because this task takes a lot of time, given the fact that you should be sorting stuff as well. So start and early and get done fast!
Start with the hardest
The logical and most practical thing that most people do is that they start from the room which is the easiest to pack and clear away. While this obviously makes things considerably easier, with the rest of the rooms with much more to pack you become demotivated and you give up easily. Therefore, the best way to get about is by starting off with the rooms that have the most to be packed. The garage, attic and the kitchen would be ideal places to start from.
Pack what you need
You might have obviously collected a bunch of stuff over the years that you have been living in a place for, but that doesn’t mean you can bring everything along with. The cost you have to pay for the movers is definitely not a small amount and some may even vary based on the number of boxes or weight of the stuff that you have packed and the truck size hired to stuff them all in. So basically, the more the load, the bigger the truck and the more you have to pay. Therefore, when you are packing things make sure that you sort out only what you need and let go of the rest. Consider the above tips and make your move efficient and less costly!
