Preparing to leave a house can be a bit of a hustle – mentally and practically. Both of these aspects require ahead preparation.
To make things easier, start to plan the moving as soon as possible. Even immediately after you signed the papers for a new house.
Here are some steps that can be made even two months before the actual move.
Keep vs. throw away-s. Decide what you want to take away with you to your new home and put it on a list. Go through every room of the house and put away the things that aren’t helpful for you anymore. Leave them for the future inhabitant of the house – if they agreed to this, or simply throw them away.
Get all the wrapping supplies. Estimate the number of boxes you are going to need and buy them or ask a local shop to keep some of their product boxes for you. You will also need: bubble tape, tape, markers. Think about the special containers for the dishes or your wardrobe.
Early packing. With even a month before the moving you can start to pack some of the items you do not use frequently. Label them clearly and put them aside.
If you are even more into detailed planning you can use this timeline on RealSimple.com. Try to stick to it as closely as possible because delays mean rescheduling and takes even more of your precious time.
