1. Make a checklist

This is something everyone who plans to move in should have but there are people who also forget about this tip. A checklist will help you keep track of all the things that are needed to be done for the move in. This is so that you don’t miss out on anything and end up stressing out at the very last minute. Also, imagine the satisfying feeling after crossing out the items on the checklist!

2. Always start early

As mentioned above, it’s recommended to start at least four to six weeks before to get organized. It’s always a good idea to start early so that everything can go as planned, or at least what you have on your checklist! If you’re planning to hire professional movers, be sure to have them booked earlier. Also, arrange an early delivery of cardboard boxes to pack up your things so that you don’t stress out last minute. Packing can be tedious and tiring, there will be a lot of things to pack up before your move. Therefore it’s best to have all these things done beforehand. 

3. Decluttering your home

Start decluttering your home early and stop procrastinating! When you pack for a move, do note that you’d be handling every single item in your home, which is going to take a lot of time and effort. Go through all the rooms one by one and ask yourself if those items are really needed in your new home. This is definitely the perfect time to sort through your stuff and decide on what you need to leave behind.

4. Pack by weight

When it comes to packing, there are ways you can pack that will make things easier for you to find them and unpack them. You can start with packing the light items such as clothes and linen into big boxes. Heavy items such as kitchenware like glass plates can be packed into smaller boxes with heavier items at the bottom. Don’t forget to label them “Fragile” if they contain anything fragile. Also, it’s best to label every box so that you can find them easily. Apart from that, you can also pack the least used items first followed by regularly used items. This way, it’ll be much easier for you to unpack them.

5. Keep essential items close

Keep aside a box or a bag for all your must-haves items like your toiletries, clothes, medications and some food items for just a few nights before you move in and after you have moved in before you settle down to unpack the boxes. 

6. Deep Clean 

Give your house a deep clean before moving out and your new house as well before moving in. Deep cleaning is a much bigger process compared to just normal cleaning. You can hire a professional house cleaning service to help you with the deep cleaning so you can focus on finishing your to-do checklist.
