Episode 020: A Successfully Organized Move



In this episode I discuss how to simplify and organize your move in 3 simple steps! Moving can feel so stressful and completely overwhelming. There are lots of moving parts (no pun intended) that need to be checked off your list. Breaking it down to 3 simple steps at a time can help you feel like you are accomplishing those tasks without feeling so overwhelmed. 

I always like to start with an Essential purge of what’s not being used before you pack, and then plan to purge again when you start unpacking if those items aren’t going to work in your new space. 

The Enhancement that will add so much value to your move is properly labelling your boxes, whether you or a moving company are packing them. I suggest some specific ways to make this as easy as possible when you are unloading boxes from the truck and unpacking them in each room. This is a crucial step in having an organized move!

Finally, I highly recommend a few Extras, like visualizing the move to troubleshoot any problems that may arise. I also give a friendly reminder to stay as positive and appreciative to everyone involved in helping you with your move, and suggest some simple ways to do this. Let’s face it, this may be a time when you have anxiety, are sleep deprived, and might easily lose your cool. 

Don’t forget that this is an amazing opportunity for a fresh start! Allowing old clutter or overwhelm to take over is not in the cards. You’ve got this if you keep it simple!
