Moving to a new home can be a happy but also a busy and stressful time, when you have to make many decisions. Until you get settled in your new home and have your first coffee in peace, you have an almost endless list of things you need to do, besides packing, transporting, unpacking and organizing everything you bring with you to the new location.
Here is how you can stay organized while packing for a move.
- Start early (at least 1 week in advance) and plan so that you avoid packing in a hurry.
- Make a list of the items you want to take with you and get rid of the others for which you do not want to pay to be transported. We all have things that lay forgotten in a corner of the attic, garage or a room. If you have not used an object for so long, you will definitely not use it in your new home, so get rid of it before you start packing what is really necessary.
- Try to sell at least some of the old furniture, or donate it. Unless you have no other option, you are probably not so eager to have old things in your new home, so you would better try getting some money back on that old furniture and use it to purchase something new.
- Organizes packing by category and uses labels.
All of this organization is appreciated by the Arvada moving company who moves you. It helps them to know which room to place boxes for unpacking and makes the move much quicker, rather than waiting for someone to tell them.
