Tip #1: Consolidate
When moving over the holidays, it is a good idea to make an effort to consolidate all of your packed boxes and items that need to be boxed up into one area. If possible, try to not leave most of the work until the last minute and designate a room early on that can serve as the packing station. Making an effort to consolidate will help keep things in order and from upsetting the holiday atmosphere or the Christmas tree, lights, decorations, food, and of course company.
Tip #2: Prioritize
Coming up with a plan and doing your best to prioritize when packing for a move will do wonders in keeping your home from turning into a war zone during the holidays. A good place to start would be go through each room and throw away trash and compile all the items for donation or the dumpster that you know will not be going to the new place. Once you have gotten rid of all the unnecessary clutter, you will be better prepared to start packing the things that you know will be making the move with you. For many, leaving the sentimental possessions or belongings until last will help keep the homey feeling intact during the holiday season. The bottom line: Whatever items spark your holiday cheer should be packed last.
Tip #3: Don’t Let Moving Ruin Your Holiday Spirit
Yes, the holidays are swiftly approaching and you are left with the task of moving, but that doesn’t mean your holiday spirit should be any less prominent. Play holiday music while you pack and do your best to come up with a plan that will help you move without getting overwhelmed by the time of year. By creating a festive atmosphere and keeping your spirits high, you are far more likely to be less stressed out and maybe even enjoy the move!
The idea of moving over the holidays is groan-inducing for many, but it doesn’t have to be. By using the services of a local moving company that has experience with these types of moves and doing your best to stay organized and festive, you are setting yourself up for a much happier and successful move.
