Eliminate the stress out of moving.
As you know, moving is hard work. It’s always more time consuming than we anticipate and the amount of stuff we own and didn’t even realize we had, can be overwhelming for most people. Next time you plan on moving, be prepared by De-cluttering and purging before the move and eliminate the stress out of moving.
The most efficient way to eliminate the stress out of moving is to De-clutter throughout the year and do a major De-clutter in your home a couple of times a year. It is a good time to De-clutter and purge when you think you may be ready to move again, don’t wait until the last minute. It is very likely that you have accumulated things since your last move and will not want to take everything with you. You will be surprised to see how much stuff you forgot you had and will be ready to donate some of the things you no longer have any use for. It will be such a great feeling to lighten the emotional burden you have over the things you own and the physical burden of having less stuff to move.
If you find that De-cluttering before your move is too much to handle by yourself or you just need that extra motivation, you can always ask for help from a Professional Organizer. NAPO has a list of some of the best Professional Organizers in your area. Don’t let a move stress you out and leave you with boxes sitting around in your new home for months because you don’t have a place for everything and feel too stuck to move forward, reach out for help.
Good luck and happy moving!
