Relocating? 3 Tips to Help You Stay Organized

Moving can be both an exciting and daunting task. While relocating brings new work opportunities and the promise of new friends, having to pack up and transport every item in your house can be incredibly stressful. Years of knickknacks, old clothing, and unused possessions all resurface to take up storage space and waste time. However, there is a silver lining to this, moving time is the perfect opportunity to go through everything and completely reorganize. With some planning it's possible to systematically pack up an entire house, eliminate unnecessary items, and keep track of goods to make sure that everything is easy to locate after the move.

Many people become so overwhelmed at the thought of packing that they never sit down and formulate a plan. Instead they aimlessly wander around, throwing whatever they find into boxes. This makes it hard to keep track of items and it makes unpacking very difficult. Before you start packing, go through each room and take a look around. Figure out what types of items you'll want to take with you and which ones you can part with. While you don't have to be too specific, it's important to get a general idea. This way you have a basic plan and can save yourself a lot of time once you start packing.

After looking through each room, you should begin to sort through items and determine what will make the move and what will be eliminated. An easy way to do this is to take the contents of a room and divide them into three groups. The first group is items that will be getting moved, the second is items that can be eliminated, and the third is for anything that you are unsure about. When getting rid of items it's also important to remember many charities would be more than happy to take used clothes, toys, appliances, and furniture. Many of your excess items can be donated to one of these organizations which will use them to help others. For the items that you are unsure of, it could be a good idea to keep them in a self-storage unit if you think one day you may need them.

After sorting out your possessions, start packing everything up one room at a time. By picking a single room and focusing on packing it you will know exactly where everything is. When using this method write the name of the room on the packing boxes and keep track of how many boxes it took to pack the room. This allows for easy reference when unpacking in your new home. It's also a great way to make sure that nothing goes missing. Another great way to ensure that everything arrives at your new location is to create packing lists. A packing list details every item that has been boxed, upon unpacking you check off each item as you take it out of storage. These lists are great for making sure that all your possessions arrive with you.

With proper planning moving can be a simple process. However, if you still feel overwhelmed by the moving process it's always possible to hire a professional moving company. While it will cost money, professional assistance will save you from stress.
