Moving is probably the most stressful time in anybody’s life. Give or take a few random people that may disagree with me, I would bet that most people would rather sell one of their kidneys than have to move across the country. With that being said, there are certain things that you can do to make the moving process more tolerable. That’s right – believe it or not, it does not actually have to be such a terrible time. Now I know that people may be skeptical about some random guy on the internet like me on the internet writing about moving, but I promise you that I know what I am talking about. So whether you are moving across the country, to a new apartment or home, or just a few blocks down the road from where you currently live, I am hoping that some of these moving tips can be useful for you in the current moment. If you get through with reading this article and still feel like I have not added anything of value to your moving situation, feel free to leave me a negative review and a hurtful comment if you are so inclined. Your criticism actually helps me to be a better person and a better writer. So without further ado, here is my weekly blog about moving tips and tricks for anybody and everybody.
The first moving tip that I would like to talk about in this weeks’ blog is about packing. Now packing is arguably the most important part about moving, and it can really add to the overall stress levels that you may experience from day to day. It is no joke that packing can seriously be time consuming, especially if you have a lot of stuff lying around that you are responsible for putting into cardboard boxes and other storage units. One tip that I have for anyone who is going to start packing soon is to make a packing list.
You may think that you are capable of remembering everything in your house and when you want to pack it up, but believe me when I say that some things will slip through the cracks. By making a list of things that you are going to pack you can actually feel a lot less stressed since you will not have as many things on your mind all the time. You can make a list that organizes everything you are going to pack, the order you are going to pack it in, and where you are going to pack it. For example, you could list off your dishes and silverware to be packed by next Friday in the cardboard boxes labeled appropriately. This is one way to just make everything a lot easier as you go about your life.
Another tip that I have for you about moving is that you should always create some sort of moving budget. Most people are surprised when they find out how expensive and time consuming moving is. One thing that makes moving way easier is having a simple but strict budget that you can stick to. By creating a budget, you can be sure how much things are going to cost and know in advance what you are going to be spending. No more surprises!
