4 Tips To Stay Organized While Moving On A Short Deadline

Moving has never been an easy task, add to that a time crunch and the whole task seems dreadful! Keeping the short deadline in mind, we’ve brought you our 4 handy tips to organize and plan for your moving. Whether you’re moving for a new job that is going start soon or you are looking to relocate soon to settle in time for your kids to start school soon, these tips will help you keep your cool as you go through the moving process.

Make a to-do list

Finding out that you need to make a move can be overwhelming, especially when it needs to happen on a very tight schedule. That’s why the first thing to do in this situation is to take the time to organize your thoughts and listing down everything on a piece of paper. Noting down all the task at hand would help you with a defined structure which you can refer to while going through each stage of your moving.

Once you’re done, keep the list close at hand so you can refer back to it during the moving process. Don’t be afraid to add to it any time you think of something new that you need to do. Additionally, remember to check the tasks off so that you exactly know what task you have completed.

Give yourself deadlines

Once you have your to-do lists in order, your next task is to give yourself deadlines. Go through the list and create a deadline for each item. If it’s easier, you can back track your work from the day of moving.

Try setting some hard deadlines for yourself given the time crunch you have at hand for a seamless move experience and additional time at hand to move without stress. For example, you could schedule your donation pick up the same day as you’ve decided to clean and you’re your household items which you intend to take with you. Since other people are depending on you, you’ll be more likely to stay on task. However, ensure that you don’t hyper-ventilate while tasking out work for yourself as this will defeat the purpose which might help you move without hassles.

Follow a packing system
As you pack, you’ll also want to follow a system that will help keep you as organized as possible. Every person knows what type of system would work best for them, but we have a few suggestions to help you get started:

  • Start by gathering all the stuff you need to pack.
  • Use soft items like t-shirts or oven mitts to protect more breakable/ fragile items.
  • Pack your clothes separately from their drawers. As it might help with balancing the weight of stuff which needs to be carried.
  • Create a color-coded labelling system with markers that allows you to see where boxes belong with just a glance.
  • Make a list of all the items in each box. That way, you won’t have to go hunting for items that you need when you arrive at your destination.

No matter what type of system you create, consistency is the key. Follow the same system for all of your boxes.
