While moving into a new home can be a fun and exciting experience, the moving process can feel overwhelming.

There’s so much to do in a limited time frame and it can cause a lot of stress.

On the bright side, moving can be a smooth and- we dare say- even enjoyable process. With good preparation and planning, you can get everything organized and ready before the big day!

These 5 tips will guarantee that your next move is hassle-free. Let’s dive in!

1. Prep early

When it comes to moving, the sooner you start planning, the better the outcome.  Set the ball rolling to 2-3 weeks prior to the move

Create a comprehensive checklist to help you keep track of everything you need to accomplish.

2. Declutter

No need to drag unwanted items into your new home.  Go through all your possessions, one by one, and get rid of items that are rarely used. If you need help with junk removal, hire a reliable junk removal company. They’ll do the heavy lifting while you focus on other important tasks.

3. Sell and donate

After editing your stuff down to just the things that make sense to keep, you can sell unwanted things on a garage sale, pawnshop, or online marketplaces like eBay, Facebook market place and Poshmark

In addition, you can donate gently used items to different types of charities. Furniture, clothes, toys, and books can be donated to thrift stores. Towels and linens to animal shelters while unopened and canned food items can be donated to food banks.

4. Create a packing system

An organized system will make unpacking in your new home more efficient and less chaotic.

A brilliant strategy is to pack by room. Have well-labeled boxes with box numbers for easy access. 

You can even take it a step further and color code the labels to help movers know where to place the items quickly. 

5. Accept help

Moving is a monumental task but you don’t have to do it all on your own. Enlist the help of friends and family members to make things easier. 

If your budget allows it, hire errand runners, professional movers, and organizers who will ease your burden and keep you sane throughout the process.
