It’s easy for moving to feel overwhelming. There are lots of details to manage in the days before a move and on moving day, so many people end up feeling like they are forgetting something—and in some cases, they are. Fortunately, your move doesn’t have to take on a life of its own. With some careful planning and by focusing on avoiding a few common moving mistakes explained here, you can focus on the excitement of getting settled in your new home instead of on feeling stressed about the process.
Mistake: Packing Clutter
The longer you live someplace, the more likely you are to build up clutter. Even people who are dedicated to getting rid of things they no longer use on a regular basis will end up with items in their home that they just don’t need. When you start packing, your natural inclination may be to pack everything you have. However, the last thing you want when you get to your new home is to try to figure out what to do with your old home’s junk drawer contents. To avoid this, spend some time clearing out your home before you start packing, so you can move with only the things you really need.
Mistake: Not Hiring Help
You don’t want to overspend on moving help, but the biggest mistake many people make during a move is trying to cut corners on things like hiring movers and moving trucks. Your friends and family and your SUV are not substitutes for moving crews, nor are waterlogged grocery store boxes a substitute for moving supplies. You’ll be glad you spent the money to make your move go smoothly.
