When you have a family of more than three or four members, moving may seem like an impossible task. Thankfully, this is not the case. With a little preparation and a good plan, you’ll find that moving with a large family is easier than you would think. Today we’re going to take a look at how you can achieve this. Let’s get started!
Send the little ones to Grandma’s house.
Anyone who cannot help with the moving process is going to be better off somewhere else. Young children will have a lot more fun munching on cookies with Grandma and Grandpa than being underfoot among the towers of boxes. Not to mention the fact that you will won’t have to worry about keeping them safe while you pack. It’s the best course of action for all members of the family that will help you move faster.
Make a space for your family to keep things that shouldn’t be moved.
Depending on how much space you need, you should take a room or a part of a room and tell all of your family members to use it as a place for “unmovables.” That way, you have a clear, organized space for everything that the movers don’t need to move. It will also help your family keep better track of the things that they’re going to travel with in the car. Keep an eye on it so that your kids don’t try to leave everything out of the moving boxes.
Craft a plan for moving your large family, but stay flexible.
The best laid plans are flexible ones. You should be avidly checking items off of your list as you get ready for moving, but if something falls out of line, you need to be ready for it. One of the nice things about working with a large family for your move is that you have some extra hands. Everyone who stayed with the group can help you stay on track!
