  1. Get a moving checklist. There are plenty of websites out there that can provide you with a moving checklist, and organizing your time properly is the number one pick for organization. Creating a checklist as early as you can and sticking to that plan until the very end, we’ll make sure that it goes stress free rather than being stressful.
  2. Do an inventory of your home. It’s so important that you understand whether or not you need to get a storage unit booked earlier or later. A full inventory of your possessions is important, and if you’re downsizing somewhere smaller at the last minute, then you’re going to need a good storage unit so that you can get your belongings in a safe place. You may not be able to fit everything into your rental just yet, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to add your things later on. A good storage unit should have temperature control and good security.
  3. Declutter everything. Before you move, go through everything in your home and get rid of anything old, broken or unwanted. Donate the items that are still in good condition or sell the things that you know are worth something. If you haven’t used something for over a year, then you really don’t need to bring it with you to the new house.
  4. Start packing. You can head to a supermarket or a factory to get some unwanted and discarded boxes. They’ll still be in good condition, but at least that way you can start packing your stuff without having to worry. Packing for a move can take a while, so starting very early is important. 
  5. Pack the toughest rooms first. You want to make packing as logical as possible, so starting with the busiest rooms is important. For example, if you have anything like an attic or a basement or a big storage space under the stairs that you’re planning on decluttering, it’s always a good idea to pack as you go. This way you know the things that you’re binning, donating, or selling, and the rest can be packed into your boxes.

Moving to a new house doesn’t have to be the most stressful thing that you do this year. In fact, now that you have five of the top tips that you need for a stress free move, it should go without a hitch and you should enjoy your new home as soon as possible.
