3 Easy Ways To Get Organized For A Move

Moving homes is an organizational challenge like none other. Your entire routine is based around the home, so moving can feel like a real upheaval to your whole life. Not to mention that a move means coming to terms with the amount of junk you have collected over the years! But when you do it right, moving can be a great time to implement new organization strategies, and can even jumpstart new habits and hobbies. Try some of these simple ways to get and stay organized throughout your move:

1. Visualize your new home. Visualization isn’t just a new age goal-setting technique. Imagining your new home filled with your current possessions is an essential component of moving. You may even create a sketch of your new home where you can draw and mark in where you would like to place all your furniture. Having this blueprint in place will create a sense of purpose and will feel like a plan of action. Make decisions about the things you want to bring with you to have in your new house before you start packing. If that faded floral love seat is going to clash with the modern lines of your new living room, this is the right time to donate it or sell it at a garage sale.

2. Label, then label again. When it comes to labeling, we all have the best of intentions. For example, at the beginning of the move, you may be dutifully marking every box with the room it belongs in and the contents it contains. However, after some long hours of packing, you may find that those careful labels have dissolved into a crooked “Miscellaneous” scrawled on every box. Avoid this disintegration by making labels before you even begin packing. Most computer programs have a setting for label makers. Make a few dozen for each room, and then affix a label to each side of your boxes. If your children will be assisting, you can pre-label their boxes for them, or even give them special colored stickers for them to affix to their boxes.
