GET ORGANIZED BEFORE YOU MOVE
I have recently had several of my existing clients advise that they are moving. One of my clients is downsizing from a home to an apartment, one is moving from an apartment into another apartment in another town and the latest is moving from one house to another.
My advise to anyone who is planning on moving is to go through everything in the home to make sure that what they have is what they want to take with them. I guarantee in every instance, you will find that there are many items that have just sat around the entire time you have lived at that current location and chances are those items will remain in boxes when you move. Why spend the time and money to move those items? Just get rid of them.
If they are in good condition, someone else can make use of them. Either give them away to family or friends, donate them to a local charity, freecycle them by going onto www.freecycle.org or place an ad for sale of the item on Craigs List or some other local listing. Another option is to have a garage sale before you place your home on the market for sale.
The bottom line is that you want to make the move as smooth a transition as possible and you can do that by only packing up and taking what you truly need.
Using the services of a professional organizer to help you make those decisions and help to organize the packing will save you lot's of time and aggravation when you move to your new home. Moving companies love when I organize the packing with my clients because they always know where something should go. It saves time and therefore saves money because they can move your items into the home fast and, therefore, you don't have to spend as much for their time.
Organizing before the move will ease the transition and placement of items in the home when you get there. It can save your lots of time and aggravation as well. You want to get your home settled quickly so you can function easily and enjoy it.
