You can admit it. Moving is just plain stressful.
As exciting as it is to find a new place to call home, the process of getting there can make you want to pull your hair out. The money, the time, and the energy that go into moving can be overwhelming. To save yourself some frustration, we’ve pulled together some of the top moving tips to make your experience much more pleasant.
Let go of as much as you can.
The more you get rid of, the less you have to move. That means less weight, less boxes, and less to unpack. Whether you trash, donate, or sell your belongings, it’s helpful to have them out of the way before your move. As you pack up room by room, have a trash bag and a donation bag. Donate what you can and trash what you can’t. Not only is this helpful for your move, but it can be representative of a new start in your new place. Out with the old and in with the new.
Hire a moving company.
Although it’s cheaper to pack your stuff and go, hiring movers can take a lot of pressure off you, not to mention save you time and energy. Although it may be cheaper to pack up a truck yourself, you can spend that time on other things by getting movers. With tons of moving to-dos, it can really help to have extra time. To save a few bucks, you can pack up some more personal belongings yourself, and save the kitchen, bathrooms, and basement for the movers to pack. You’ll still get the help of movers while also making sure your favorite treasures are packed to your liking.
Find used boxes.
Rather than buying boxes, take time to search for some free ones. Stores like Walmart and Target sometimes have leftover boxes from shipments that they plan on recycling or throwing away. If you see any, ask if you can have them. Liquor stores often also have a ton of leftover boxes, and smaller boxes like these can be more helpful than you’d think. With this being said, you may not need boxes if you hire a mover, as they may provide you with some.

As tough as moving can be, don’t let it break you! During your move, be sure to treat yourself to plenty of relaxation time. Stay organized and on task, but don’t let it control your whole life. Set aside time to be tranquil and not think about the move at least once a day. Your psyche will thank you.
Be kind to your movers, your family, and yourself during this busy time.
Kindness goes a long way. Those around you will appreciate it, and you will feel accomplished for keeping your cool during what is known as one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. Enjoy yourself and get excited about your new place.
