Whether you are moving to a new city, or just moving homes in the area you already live in, moving is such an exciting time! There is so much possibility for a perfectly Pinterest-designed home when you start with a clean slate. However, when you have a lot going on in your life and feel like you are too busy to move, it can put a damper on the experience and kill the excitement. Between careers, friends, significant others, kids, and everything else that we have going on in life, it can seem so overwhelming. Don’t lose hope! I have moved while I was incredibly busy multiple times, so I’m sharing my experience with you. Here are my best pieces of advice to help you move when you are too busy to move:
This seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes you just need someone else to say it to you (this is the sign that you were waiting for, GO START NOW!). I am definitely someone who considers myself a procrastinator when it comes to moving, but every single time I move, I think about how much easier it would have been if I would have started just a couple weeks earlier. Even if starting early means just getting your moving supplies and taping your boxes together, that is one less thing you will have to do come crunch time. An added bonus is that once you have your boxes taped and ready to be packed, you might feel the inspiration to start! If it still all just seems like too much, try giving yourself a rule that you must pack one or two items every time you walk by a box. You might just get started and not be able to stop! Starting early will ensure that you have the time you need to get all of your things organized and ready, despite being incredibly busy.
Do A Little At A Time
Only have 5 spare minutes in between meetings on a work-from-home day? Take advantage of that small bit of time, and put some little things in boxes. Packing a little at a time makes the move less overwhelming, and also helps you to feel like you haven’t wasted hours and hours packing when you have so many other important things on your schedule. For example, designate a certain area to have finished every day. You might give yourself the task of packing the things underneath a sink one day, and maybe a bookshelf another day. You can always pack more than you have planned if you get into the groove, but finishing small areas piece by piece will speed up the process when you have limited time.
