Few things are as stressful as moving. The thought of packing up your family’s belongings and somehow transporting them all to another location is anxiety inducing. How much will it cost? How long will it take? What if you break that crystal chandelier from your Great Aunt Ruth? The more you think about the process, the more stressful it becomes. But don’t worry. It is possible to enjoy an easy move – you just need a plan. Specifically, you should follow these tips:
1. Get Rid of Clutter
The very first step is to get rid of clutter. This is important for two reasons. First, getting rid of clutter allows the packing process to go much smoother. You don’t have to worry about organizing items that are unnecessary. Second, once you arrive at your new home, you get to start fresh. In other words, you aren’t bringing a bunch of junk that will pile up in closets, attics, and storage bins. This is one of the beauties of moving – you have a perfect excuse to get rid of all those things you no longer need.
