Tips to Stay Positive When Moving

Avoid the Rush: Plan extra time to pack up your belongings in peace. If you have kids, schedule packing time while they’re at school or a babysitter’s so you can focus.

Use a Label-Maker: Mark each box you pack with both the room it goes to and a general list of its contents. This help keep the move organized and reduces confusion when you reach your new home.

Separate Things You Need to Have Handy: Pack the things you don’t expect to need immediately, and pack an overnight bag with the things you need sooner, like spare clothes and grooming supplies.

Know Where Your Treasures Are: Few things are more stressful and mood-wrecking than losing the things you value. If you expect to return for visits, consider putting your valuable things in a safe-deposit box. If you don’t expect to be back, consider keeping them on your person during the move.

Take Advantage of The Opportunity to Declutter: Clutter creates stress, so when you combine clutter with moving, it can really increase the amount of pressure you feel. Sell things you don’t really need on auction sites, or give away to charity for receipts you can use to get deductions when filing your taxes.
