FAQ for Moving Your Family
- How do we declutter before the big move?
If you know what you want to keep and what needs to go, the first step is just to separate it all out. Allow yourself some time to really collect their value and then sell the stuff you don’t want online or at a garage sale! Repurposing is all the rage anyways, so why not take advantage of it! Whatever doesn’t sell, donate it! Grab that tax receipt and let that anxiety go!
- How does anyone have an organized move?
A successful move has a key component to it: organization. Getting organized is a must! One of the easiest ways to get you started is by making a list. Group items together and label them like your life depended on it (because when you can’t find your underwear, it kind of does). Group boxes together according to the rooms that they will be going to in your new home/space. Label the item, the room it should go to, and the durability of the items (fragile, etc.). Also, pack an essentials box! If there are certain things you can’t live without, keep them separate! This will prevent you from going through several boxes looking for one particular thing.
- How do I help my family with the move?
Especially when it comes to kids, moving an entire family can be challenging. Getting them involved in the decision making process is a must. Letting them design their new rooms is a great first step to accepting their new space as they begin to feel at home.
- What should we expect on moving day?
Honestly, no one is really prepared for the chaos that moving day brings. It’s emotional, physically exhausting, and mentally draining. Making a list and checking it twice is a great way to prevent yourself from forgetting arduous tasks like sweeping a closet or turning off a certain light. Additionally, protecting your property once you are moving is extremely important. Whether that’s letting a neighbor or your HOA know that you are leaving, it’s important that you keep your property safe. It’s also important to remember to make it a positive and rewarding experience. Reduce your stress by taking some time outs throughout the day to really enjoy the moment and look forward to your change.
