Gearing up for a move this fall? Don’t wait until the last minute to get organized! Though the sunny summer weather is never an ideal time to get your home life sorted for a move, it’s just something that has to be done. The best way to tackle your move with the least amount of stress and aggravation is by starting now and planning out everything that needs to get done before your official move-in date. Here, we have some pro tips on how to get started and how you can squeeze it all in without hampering your summer plans and stressing.
Create a Detailed To-Do List
Whether you prefer a pen and paper or your mobile device, get started by creating a detailed to-do list. This will help you stay on track during those times when you don’t know where or what to focus on. And by prioritizing the list, you’ll be able to use your time more efficiently, which means you’ll have more time to enjoy those warm weekends with friends.
Book Your Movers Now
Though summer is the busiest time of year for moving, the fall can also book up fast, especially as people try to avoid moving in the sweltering summer heat. So be sure to do your research, find a reputable moving company and lock in your moving date with them ASAP. This should be one of the first tasks to get sorted on your to-do list.
Clear Out Junk
Moving is always the best time to go through all of your belongings and determine what you no longer want or need to keep around. Choose one area per week to dejunk so you can chip away at it without feeling overwhelmed during the process. Remember, the less stuff you have to move, the more you can save since there’ll be fewer boxes for the movers to haul.
Don’t make your future self suffer from the aftermath of poor packing. Think ahead and pack strategically to make the unpacking process less daunting. Store similar items in the same containers and clearly label every box. This will make it easy and quick for the movers to place boxes into the correct rooms so you won’t need to move stuff around once they’re gone.
Have Your New Home Prepped and Ready
Don’t forget to arrange your essentials in your new home, such as utilities, cable, Internet and anything else that’s necessary. Also, make sure to talk to your landlord or previous owners to ensure you’ll have parking available, the elevator booked and the keys in hand when you need them. The last thing you want to deal with is any surprises on the big moving day.
