Tips for Organizing Your Move

Posted on Jun 25, 2011

Moving can be quite a large task.  We are in the process of moving and there are so many things to get done!  I try to tackle it in 3 parts: 1. Before the move 2. The BIG move 3. After the move  1.

Obtain quotes for truck rentals and movers Get boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, mattress covers, tape, permanent black markers – request from your movers or purchase on your own.  Home Depot, Lowes and storage places all sell these items.

Examples – Formal dining, basement and storage items, books, DVDs, files, trinkets, off-season clothing, etc. While you are packing, place unwanted items to the side and build a “donation” or “sell” pile.  Less clutter! Remember to label your boxes so you know where to place them in your new home.  It’s always a good idea for you to pack and move your important documents, jewelry and other valuables in your own vehicle. Cancel current utilities and sign up for utilities at your new place. Change your address with the Post Office and begin the...

The less clutter and “stuff”, the better All bedrooms should look like bedrooms Remove all clutter from kitchen tables, coffee and end tables Remove/rearrange bulky items in common places — examples Is your kitchen garbage can in a discreet location? Is your pet’s crate in a laundry room or another unnoticeable spot? Do you have gym equipment in your bedroom or living room? Is your pet annaconda in the garage?  If not, lend to a friend until you sell your house. Some of these are humorous, but are really something to think about.  Things you may think are acceptable, may not be to a potential buyer.  Go through your home, room by room, and determine what you can do to create a clean and well organized...
