How to Move at the Last Minute

In a perfect world, you’ll have plenty of forewarning to prepare for a move. Of course, as we all know, this is not a perfect world and sometimes you just don’t have the kind of time to move out. That doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of what little time you do have. With these last minute moving tips, your move will at least be made a bit easier.

Organize Your Move

Create a checklist of everything you might need, including to do items, supplies and any kind of hired help. It is much easier to see everything written out than to try and recall it on the fly.

Purge While You Pack

Don’t just toss everything in boxes. Keep a trash bag out as you go. Toss away what you no longer need. Have items you can donate? Have a special box for that. This will actually save time as you won’t have as many boxes to load and unbox once your move has finished.

Keep it Simple

If you don’t have a lot of time to box everything up, maybe you don’t have to. For example, you can bundle clothing on hangers together, put a trash bag over them, and simply lay the clothing on top of other items that you’re moving. Easy-peasy.

Stay Calm

When you don’t have much time to prep, it’s easy to panic. A million things might flow through your head, which can cause unwanted stress and anxiety. Stay calm and take a moment to breathe now and then. You’ll finish everything you need to, and you can always call in professionals.
