It's official, moving house is the third most stressful thing that we can do...

But there are some steps that you can take to make the process a lot easier, and prevent that last minute "packing panic":

1. start packing early

Don’t fall into the trap of leaving your packing to the last minute.

Breaking your packing into smaller pieces will make the task more manageable. Start with the things that you don’t rely on day to day, and get them boxed up.

The stuff you rely on the most gets packed the last. Simple.

2. label your boxes & bags

If you are starting early, there is always the chance that you may need something you have already packed.

Label boxes and bags by room and list inventory in enough detail so that you can lay your hands on something if you really need it.

Ikea bags or similar are really handy items for clothing and linens and laundry bags also work well for last minute items.

3. Time to declutter

The chances are you’ll find things that you just don’t need anymore. These can either:

  1. Go to charity
  2. Be sold online
  3. Carted off to the local recycling centre

It’s hard to say goodbye to things, but it does make good sense not to move things that you don’t need.

4. technology

Keep wires and chargers with the items that they power or connect. Even tape them together if you can, or use labels to stay organised.

5. big furniture

Chances are that some of your furniture, particularly the flat packed stuff, will need to be disassembled to get through doorways.

In some extreme cases, a window may need to be removed to get stuff out.

Have a plan in place for this to prevent a spanner in the works.

6. The Essentials

Have a box with all the things you need for a tea, coffee or snacks for when you move.

This can also include items such as:

  • Phone chargers 
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Handy tools such as screwdrivers etc.

7. Make the beds up as a priority

It can be a long day and the last thing you want is to have to do is make your beds up last thing when you're ready to crash.

One thing you can count on after a move is feeling tired and a good night’s sleep.
