Moving is exciting, but it’s also a stressful task. Being organized throughout your move must be more than just a pretty thought if you want to make the process simple and streamlined, and it requires you stay focused. It can save you a lot of time packing and unpacking, which is great when you just want to sit down and really enjoy your new home and the thought of never packing again. It’s worth the time and effort, and these three tips are designed to help you move faster and with more organization.
You already know this, but there’s more to it than just labeling boxes as you go. It’s imperative you put only items from the same room in the same box. This allows you to label everything with one room on it, and that box should be placed immediately into the room in which it belongs. When you go this route, you don’t spend additional time organizing boxes after they’re all moved into the new home. Everything is where it needs to be, and all you have to do at this point is begin opening boxes in the room they’re already in.
Pack What You Need Separately
As you move into a new home, you realize you should have left specific items where you could easily find them. Pack personal items, clothes, bedding, and even your coffee maker and cups in separate areas so you know where to find them when you move in. If you don’t get to the opening and unpacking of your boxes right away, at least you’ll get to the part where you can wake up and have a fresh cup of coffee and a shower with the right shower items. Additionally, in order to take care of move out cleaning, you should pack cleaning products separate and ensure that they are accessible throughout the process.
Create a Timeline
It sounds impossible, but you can move into a new home in just one day and enjoy it in no time at all. If you purge as you go, create a timeline for moving and unpacking, you can actually have everything moved in and most things opened, put away, and even decorated by the time you go to bed on the moving night. Create a timeline of when you’re starting each task so you stay on track and get things done.
Moving is a lot of work, but it’s not meant to be impossible. You can do it faster, simpler, and more efficiently when you take the time to learn these tips. No one wants to spend their time moving useless items from home to home, so take this advice and run with it.
