Moving to a new home can be an exciting and stressful experience. With so many lists and tasks it can be easy to lose track of the end goal.
That’s why we’ve gathered up our favourite pieces of advice for preparing your home when moving!
Step 1: Organise your moving supplies
Your first step is one of the most important and seemingly simplest – now is the time to organise your moving supplies.
We recommend creating a box or basket of supplies that you will be using frequently, such as packing tape, scissors and permanent markers. This way you’ll always have everything you need on hand and everyone helping out during the packing process will know where to find what they need.
Step 2: Set aside time to declutter
Next up is the decluttering process! We recommend setting aside as much time as possible to work your way through each room in your home.
During this process you can choose to give away, donate to charity, sell or toss items you no longer need. This process can also double up with packing to save time!
Step 3: Be ruthless
When going through the decluttering process, it’s always a good idea to remind yourself that now is the time to be ruthless. If you’re unsure about an item, this generally means it’s time to get rid of it.
If you’re still unsure, consider getting feedback from a close friend of family member. Chances are they’ll be able to tell if you’re holding onto something for sentimental reasons.
Step 4: Stay organised as you pack
The next step is more of a tip! But one you should definitely use! In order to streamline the moving process and prepare your home without a hitch, we recommend staying as organised as possible during the packing process. This includes labelling boxes with the room where they belong, as well as the number of boxes being unpacked into the room.
Step 5: Stay organised in your new home
Finally, remember to stay organised in your new home! This means unpacking each and every box completely and ensuring that every item you move from your home into your new one has a place.
This will give you the best start to an organised life!
