The stress of moving tends to blur our judgment and organization skills.
Imagine this experience as a great adventure, a new beginning, because if you let yourself be guided by the anxiety of doing everything right in a small time you're going to commit a lot of mistakes.
Here are 5 of the most common mistakes of those who have to organize a relocation.
1. DO NOT CLEAR THE CLUTTER
It is the first fundamental rule for those who don't want to give up the towel before beginning.
Even before you start planning, organizing, even imaging moving you must delete everything you don't need. In a Word? Decluttering.
2. UNDERESTIMATE STORAGE BOXES
Do you want to use cardboard boxes recovered at the entrance of shops and supermarkets to organize your moving? Go ahead, but be careful what you choose. Boxes used to transport groceries may be moist, thin or even dirty. Better to invest in sturdy boxes to best protect your items.
3. FORGET THE LABELS
The task of labeling each box will take you just few minutes but will avoid wasting precious time in seeking this or that other object once you arrive in your new home. Isn't that an acceptable compromise?
4. IGNORE YOUR PETS
Organizing a relocation is never easy, for humans as for our four-legged friends.
Changes and disorder become cause of stress for our pets, that's why when you move you should not ignore their needs. Better to help them to overcome the bustle and get used to the new habitat.
5. LEAVING WITHOUT PLAN
It won't be easy to organize your relocation and limit stress peaks without a careful planning of time to devote to packing your objects. If work takes you up so much time away from home and you can devote to moving only a few hours in the evening and on weekends, better schedule your activities. Then committed to respect it.
