The Tidy Life
September 30, 2020|
While it may sometimes be difficult to find the good that has come out of 2020, one of the best things has been working from home. The freedom that comes with working remotely has given employees the confidence and ability to work from almost anywhere. As more and more companies go remote for the foreseeable future, many employees are starting to question where they live.
If you are one of those adventure-seekers who are using this newfound freedom to move across the country, congratulations! This is a major decision and you should be proud of yourself. But odds are you are also really stressed out with all there is left to do.
Working full-time, packing your belongings, and coordinating a move across the country can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. The only thing you can really to do reduce stress is to be prepared.
We recommend really starting to plan out your move two months before the day you leave. That means giving yourself a solid 8 weeks to plan every detail of your major relocation. Use this checklist below to help you plan out those two months and make your move as organized as possible.
This is when you’re going to set the stage for your organized move. You’ll want to create a digital folder to keep everything easily accessible over the next couple of months.
Things are starting to get real. Use this last month to get yourself as organized as possible. Don’t wait until the last minute to do anything.
This is the home stretch! Start planning the final moments of your move and make sure you are not letting anything fall through the cracks that will make moving day more challenging.
There is no way around it, moving day is going to be stressful. Do your best to be flexible, go easy on yourself and know there are only 24 hours in a day.
If you are looking around your space and wondering how you will ever move all of your stuff across the country, you’re not alone. Over time, you accumulate more things than you will ever need in your new space. Use the moving process as a fresh start and purge things you don’t need, while investing in temporary storage for things you may need down the line.
