How are you going to avoid common moving day disasters?
In part one of our guide to avoiding moving day disasters, we covered the basics of how you can make your moving process smooth and simple. We talked about how to handle perishables in your fridge and about the importance of planning ahead. Today, we’re going to let you in on some other moving secrets that will make your next move a piece of cake. Let’s take a look.
If you don’t need it, then don’t take it with you.
One of the most underrated side-effects of moving is that you can finally cleanse your life of unnecessary clutter. Ebay, LetGo, and other websites will be your new best friends during this process so that you can make a little extra cash as you get rid of extra items. Now, the earlier you start on your decluttering process, the more organized you can be as you make decisions on what you should sell and what you should store. As with all facets of the moving process, you should really give yourself the time to think things through. That way you can make the most logical and beneficial choices for yourself.
Make your budget work for you.
No matter how comfortable you are with your finances, having a clear budget is going to give you the best result. Try to outline your spending as soon as possible so that you can seamlessly integrate your moving expenses. Always include a financial cushion of some kind so that you will be prepared for the unexpected and not have to delay your move. Sometimes even a small delay can cause a lot of strife if you have to take more days off of work or have to hold onto resources longer than you originally anticipated. All this to say that without a clear budget, your move could end up costing you a lot more than you had hoped. It pays well to plan well.
