Helpful moving tips
We can’t always anticipate or control when we need to make a move, and sometimes it can happen during the most inconvenient times, like the holidays! If you’re stuck moving this Christmas season, don’t stress. We have some handy tips for moving over the holidays to help you sail through it like a pro.
Block Off a Month to Get Organized
It’s a hectic time of year and moving is a busy process no matter when you do it. To give yourself ample time to get organized, block off the month to keep it free for getting through your to-do list. A month is usually enough time to get everything packed up and sorted. Just make sure to ask for help if you need it.
Create a Packing Plan
The last thing you want is to feel high stress and burn out when you have an entire house to pack up. To avoid this, create a packing plan, detailing where you’re going to start packing up first, room by room. Keep a spare room or section of the home for packed boxes and do a little each night.
Let Someone Else Host Holiday Get-Togethers
If you’re usually the one to host family get-togethers over the holidays, this year let someone else take over. Moving and packing are messy and time-consuming. Having to think about food prep and all that comes with entertaining will add a lot to your plate. Instead, opt-out and give another family member the reins. That way, you can still carve out a little bit of time to enjoy the festive celebrations and then get back to packing.
Go Minimal on the Decorations
Just because you’re moving, it doesn’t mean you can’t still add some holiday decorations to your home. Add a few festive touches that you can easily pack up in one box. As for the tree, maybe choose a smaller one this year to make it easier to pack.
Book Your Movers Early
The winter is a challenging season when it comes to driving, loading up the truck and maneuvering along slippery pathways. Make sure to book professional movers who can do it all safely.
