Stack of labelled moving boxesMoving season is just around the corner. Whether you’re making a move cross-country or down the hall, moving can be stressful. Luckily, Closet & Storage Concepts of Denver, Colorado is here to help. Here are three key tips to keep you sane as you embark on your next move.

  1. Plan Early

By plan early, we mean to start planning your move as soon as you find out your move date. While there are some things that you simply won’t be able to do until the day of your move, being prepared well in advance for any potential hiccups will keep you on track. Planning is a great way to relieve stress before, during, and after your move. You also may be surprised by how a little bit of planning can reduce a whole lot of stress.

Create a timeline for you to complete moving tasks in addition to the tasks themselves. Creating a list of the activities to do will help you to stay on task during your move and prevent any task from slipping through the crack. It is up to you to decide how detailed you want to plan.

  1. Packing

Packing and unpacking are arguably the most stressful parts of moving for many people. Use these tips to make the process a bit easier for you.

Purge Before You Pack

If you don’t want to bother bringing items with you, purge them. You’ll reduce the amount of stuff you take with you, making you less stressed during and even after the move. You will have fewer items to unpack as well!

Label, Label, Label

Label the boxes in a clear way so you know the exact contents of each box. Label the top corner of the box with the room the items should be unloaded into to make unloading and unpacking even easier. Moving lists can also be helpful to keep an inventory of all of your items and see what comes on and off the truck. It’s a helpful way to see items at a glance. Use a digital method if that works best for you.

  1. Hire Professionals

While moving can incur significant costs, and you may be reluctant to add to it, hiring professionals can be worth the reduction in stress. They’ll be able to help you pack and unpack items, load and unload. This may be extremely useful so you’re not physically drained at the end of your day. If you want to combat the costs, consider taking as many small items as you can and leaving the bulkier and heavy items to the movers.

Moving day can be stressful, but it’s also a great time to consider the items you’re bringing with you. You’ll be able to bring items you truly treasure and need into your new home.
