Save Time on Moving With these Easy Tips
Moving can be an exciting time, while simultaneously leading you into a panic. Frustration can ensue not only from finding time to pack but finding the resources to pack with. Although you want to jump the gun and read about your new destination, it’s getting there that’s the tough part. Check out some tips below that may lead you to a more relaxing venture abroad.
Change Your Address 2 Weeks Prior
Don’t delay changing your address or you could end up missing payments. Make sure to change your address 2 weeks before your move to get it out of the way. If you have magazine subscriptions, Amazon, PayPal, credit card bills, etc. they could all get stopped in the process over your overseas move.
Sell, Sell, Sell
The key here is: Do everything in advance. This includes selling your items. You don’t even need to leave the house if you don’t want to.
Hop on Craigslist, eBay or Etsy to start selling your goods. It does take time however, especially with these websites so do it a month or two before moving. If you’re lucky, you may get a bundle of money back!
You probably hate digging around for items, especially when you’re in a hurry to move. By placing red tape on boxes with essential items, you can easily find your most treasured valuables. This is extremely helpful if you’re already having anxiety. Nothing is more frustrating than digging around for your valuable items. Often times, during these situations our minds begin to think irrationally and immediately believe someone stole our items. Trust us, red tape helps!
If you LOVE it, Keep it
If you’re digging through your house trying to determine which items to toss, only keep the ones that you absolutely LOVE. Don’t hold onto old picture frames, outdated lamps, half used tissue boxes, broken tennis rackets…well, you get it. You will only be spending more time packing and wasting valuable space in your moving boxes.
