Stop Wasting Time! Tips to Get You Moving Faster

Unless you love moving (and yes, there are people who love the organizational and logistical aspects of it all), then you’re probably worried about what to do with the vast amount of stuff you’ve accumulated and how you’re going to get it from one place to the other. As with a lot of things, you probably don’t have a ton of money to throw at the problem either. There are things that you can do though to make your transition go a little more smoothly.

Decide What You Want Before You Go

It might seem easier to just see what you’re going to want when you get to the new place. After all, how can you know what will go in a space if you don’t have a chance to get a real sense of the ins and outs of your new home? Plus, this way you can delay the tougher decisions until you’re done with the physical part of the move. It’s tempting, but you should really make those tough calls earlier rather than later. The less stuff you have to deal with, the less likely you’ll feel overwhelmed.

Get a Schedule Going

Sometimes it really helps to write things down on a checklist or a daily organizer. Do your best to get all of the tasks on there, and don’t underestimate how long they’ll take. Can you really go through the kitchen in just a day? Do you actually remember how many pots, pans and Tupperware containers you’ve amassed over the years? When was the last time you really looked at the attic or basement. Things have a way of piling up, and a schedule can keep you from going off the rails (and ultimately save you time.)

Redefine Your Focus

Any problems and stresses you’ll have with moving come from not having sufficient motivation. Moving isn’t becoming a millionaire from playing the stock market overnight: you can do this! You need to focus on what moves you — literally. Motivational quotes, books, energetic music, just gritting your teeth: we all have something that helps.

Calling On the Experts

Having the seasoned pros take over the packing and take a big share of the load may prove to the be best move for you. This gives you a good chunk of your life back, and lets you focus on the many other things you’ll need to do with your move.
