Moving Hacks To Reduce Stress During The Big Move
The actual thought of moving alone can become a stressful event for most people, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You have to be physically, financially, mentally, and emotionally prepared when that day comes. It’s not easy – we get it, but there are some things that you can do to reduce stress when moving.
1. Create A Timetable
Doing everything at the last minute can be tempting, but never a good idea. Plan your move in advance, create a schedule and a timetable if you have to. This makes it easier for you to plan everything out.
2. Bring What You Only Need
Donate the things that you don’t need and don’t bring them with you to your next move.
3. Pack All The Cords
However, there’s an exception to this – bring all the cords that you can. You can’t risk getting rid of important cords or chargers. You may want to pack them separately because you’ll never know which among these cords you’ll be using.
4. Label Your Boxes
This may sound basic, but pack all your things based on the room or by category, whatever makes you feel comfortable, and make sure to label those boxes.
5. Do Load Essentials To The Moving Truck Or Van
Essential stuff such as your computers, laptops, or gadgets shouldn’t be packed and loaded into your truck.
6. Don’t Make Boxes Heavy, But Keep Them Full
You would want to make sure that you can load and unload these boxes at ease so try not to pack them heavily, but you wanted to keep them full. Fill them with things for that empty space. You may also want to consider using blankets or towels to wrap fragile things to help you save cost and minimize the use of bubble wraps.
7. Take Photos If You Need To Take Your Furniture Apart
Believe me – you’d want to remember how your furniture would look like even after you take it apart. Take a photo of it so you have a reference once you’re trying to build it together.
Moving may take a lot of effort, but these simple things will make your entire move easier. Remember, have fun, have a timeline, don’t cram, and everything else will fall into place perfectly.
