The bigger the move, the longer your to-do list gets.
Here are a few things you can do to make things easier.


1. Plan easy meals for the last month before you go.

Even if you’re not the meal-planning type, laying out exactly what you’re going to eat the month before you move can save you a lot of hassle and money. The last thing you’ll want to do after packing all day and running errands is fix something for dinner. So stock up on freezer meals and save some money for a few nights of takeout.

2. Inventory and label boxes as you go.

Don’t wait until you’ve packed a box to write down what’s in it and label it. It’s an easy step to do as you pack that can make unpacking so much easier! No one wants to spend the first several days in their new home opening box after box looking for the coffee maker.

3. Check and double check you’re remembering everything.

Instead of relying on your own ability to remember what needs to be done, use a checklist like this one.

4. Book a moving truck/packing crew.

You will need to pack and move all your belongings, which is a big task. We suggest you find a professional moving team that is ready and equipped to make your transition smooth.
