One of the best ways to stay organized and on-track is to create a moving folder. In your moving folder, you should ideally include home-buying papers or lease agreements, addresses for your new and old place, moving agreements, forms, and any other important documents that pertain to your move. Keeping these documents together in hard copy form can help keep you organized and ready for anything! Make sure you also have digital copies of each of these documents, too, to be prepared!

Making right and important decisions will help to keep your moving stress-free. Focus on your time and choose the right day to move by making sure you pick a day that’s not too soon and not the last day you have to be in your old home. Hiring a moving company in advance of your move can also help you plan accordingly. If you have a flexible moving schedule, play around with the moving dates so you can choose the easiest or least expensive day to move.

If you’re struggling with where and how to start packing and getting the move started, prepare yourself a timetable and put a moving task on your schedule. Take your time and figure out everything you need to do for your move, and if you can, divide specific tasks among those who are helping you with your move. The importance of creating a timeline is to make tasks more manageable and so you have a set schedule for yourself during each day of your move.
