Moving can be a stressful experience under the best of circumstances. Even if you can afford to hire movers to pack everything and do all the moving for you, it’s still an interruption to your daily life. Here are some top tips to help make your residential move as smooth as possible:
Before you pack up everything else, pack what you need for your first night in your new home in an overnight bag and put it in your car. That way, no matter what happens to everything else, you have the essentials to survive your first night.
Clear plastic bins will not only help you see immediately what is inside, but they will distinguish your essentials from everything else packed away in cardboard boxes. If you have movers helping you move, you can ask them to set the clear plastic bins in a specific area for quick and easy access as soon as you arrive.
You must move all your clothing and linens anyway, so why not use them for a purpose? You can wrap glasses in socks, pad boxes with heavy items with wadded up sheets and towels, and even wrap pictures and other breakable items in linens. Best of all, when you get to your new residence, you won’t have a ton of trash to take out.
Sometimes, it’s easier to break down large pieces of furniture or items like bookcases or shelving before the move. Use masking tape to either tape screws, nuts, bolts and other hardware directly to the furniture or place them in a Ziploc bag and tape that to the furniture it came from.
Colored duct tape is a great way to color code your boxes so you know exactly where they go. Use a permanent marker to write on the tape what is in the box and what room it goes in. If you are hiring movers to move your belongings, you can even number the boxes and keep a list of what is in each box. Then you know exactly how many boxes you should have and what is missing if a box gets misplaced.
In many cases you can actually save a great deal of money – not to mention time, energy, headaches and hassles – by simply selling off your old stuff and purchasing new stuff for your new place. Often, your old furniture won’t fit as well in your new place anyway, so moving is a great time to restock or even upgrade.
Before you move from one home to another, there are some things that you want to consider getting rid of instead of packing every little thing in your home to take with you. When you get to your new home, it will be a time to start over. You can paint the walls, get new furniture and make the home look different than what you moved from because it is a different environment. If you have a lot of items from your previous home that you don’t even want, then your new house can become cluttered very quickly.
Divide your belongings into a few different categories: anything functional and frequently used, items that have a special place in your heart, and items that bring beauty to the home that you have used for some time. If you go through your belongings and can’t think of a reason to keep something, then it’s time to purge those items instead of packing them on the moving truck. Here are some of the best things to toss before your move:
When you pack the items in your bathroom and linen closet, pay attention to the condition of your towels, washcloths, and sheets. If they have holes in them and look like they could be used for rags instead of their designated purpose, then it’s probably time to purge them and get new ones for your new home. Your fitted sheets will usually lose their elasticity after a few years and your towels may be stained from years of make-up removal. Use moving as an opportunity to purchase new linens for all the beds in the home as well as soft towels for your family to use.
If there are appliances in the kitchen that don’t work or pieces of equipment that you no longer use, moving is the time to get rid of them. Items that still work can be donated or sold. Throw away or recycle broken appliances. If there’s something in your cabinets that is just collecting dust, then consider tossing it instead of trying to salvage it because it’s likely something that you’re not going to use in your new home.
Before packing all your clothes and accessories, go through your belongings to get rid of what you can’t wear and what you don’t want. There are probably items that you haven’t worn in a while that could be given to someone else or sold. The trinkets that have dust on them or that don’t seem to go with any kind of other decoration in the room can also be purged so that you can get new decorations for your new home.
If you still have boxes in your attic from the last time you moved, take time to consider whether this is stuff you really need to keep. If you haven’t even opened the box or don’t remember what’s inside, and you’ve lived without it for several months or years then now may be the time to part ways with some of the extra baggage.
If you’re an avid reader with stacks upon stacks of books and magazines filling up every nook and cranny, consider paring down your personal library. If it’s a text or publication you don’t plan to read again, consider donating it to your local library or selling it to a used bookstore. Getting rid of heavy books is one of the easiest ways to cut down on moving costs.
This list is a great starting place for decluttering before you start the packing process. Remember to think twice before packing anything in a box to ensure you keep your new home as clutter free and easy to organize as possible.
