5 TIPS FOR MOVING HOUSE

Hello everybody! 

Moving can be a quite stressful event.
For us, it's been a bit less stressful. I mean, week before moving and we haven't
done a thing. We should though. But here I am, writing a post about tips for doing it.
YAY ME. Well done, once again.


#1 PACK EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU'RE NOT GOING TO 
NEED AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE

I mean, it sounds easy right. Those boots you haven't been wearing for ages? No. 
You want to wear them few nights before the move if you happen to go to a gig 
that night.
Pack everything you think you won't be needing as early as possible, but think 
carefully; there still might be stuff you're going to need. 

#2 SCHEDULE THINGS

For us, early packing means that we schedule a day for every single room in our 
apartment. Larger apartment, longer it's going to take. 
Today we're having a kitchen in the schedule, tomorrow there's living room and a day 
after that we move on to the bedroom. It's easier and more stress-free if you take 
it from room to room and to day to day. 

#3 WHO NEEDS ALL OF THOSE PLATES?

Packing kitchen stuff might be tricky, but save a couple of plates for daily use 
and wash them right after the use. Then you won't be needing all of your plates 
and cuppas around & you can wrap everything you don't need in your moving 
boxes. 
Same goes with clothing. Save all those panties and put all those blouses & other 
things you won't be using anyways in the next few weeks straight to the moving 
box or IKEA bag. I must recommend IKEA bag because somehow I end up 
packing something I need later. 

#4 GET RID OF EVERYTHING YOU HAVEN'T BEEN USING 
FOR AT LEAST A YEAR

I like to do this house purifying thing every time we move and it's really useful. 
Then you won't be needing those things in the next year or next year after that. 

#5 REWARD YOURSELF

This works for me pretty well. I usually reward myself by playing The Sims after 
we're finished packing so whatever floats your boat, go for it. 

Do you have any special tips for moving?

  2. Very sensible and smart tips, scheduling will make it easier. But on the other hand living with boxes around can be stressful as well.. at least it was for me. So maybe you're not doing so bad. You still have a whole week :) Good luck with the move Jasmin! x

  6. Great tips hun. I think getting rid of things you haven't used in a year could be a good idea in regular intervals anyway, not just when moving. I should probably do that soon again 😍

    1. Hahah, we have moved sooo many times (almost a once a year) so it goes well on the side of the move :D But I'll guess that in this new apartment of ours we have to do that at least once in two years as we have planned to stay there a bit longer :D

  7. I can be really lazy sometimes but the reward yourself thing always works for me! I usually reward myself with cookies and Netflix...

  10. Great tips!! My best tip would also have been get rid of things you don't need. It is so much easier to carry everything, if you don't hold on to every item... :D

  12. We'd be moving on the first week on next month and so this is super helpful
    I think one thing I have learnt from moving is, be careful what you place in what bag, and let the movers helping out know too!

  16. This is so relatable. It was indeed stressful. When I moved to my new apartment last February, I thought hiring a moving crew is enough, but not! I have to arranged and unpack again, etc. I think it takes me a month to fully settled in.

    1. Haha, it surely takes some time :D We usually unpack pretty quickly-ish

  17. Moving is pretty stressful. I always seem to pack at the last minute but try to pack away things that I don't need first and then widdle myself down to most important! Great Tips! The worst part is unpacking :(

  19. Great tips. I totally love moving. Or at least living in a new place and have new surroundings. I really agree with throwing away what you don't need. That really makes a difference. My last move went quite quickly. We moved within 2 days!

  22. I've just moved with my boyfriend and it was a pretty cleansing experience.what wasn't so cleansing was leaving a brand new table behind and have the idiots at the lettings agency wanting to charge me for "disposal of large item". But apart from that I feel very happy in my new house. Feel free to check the blog I have with my partner and read the post we've written about our moving :) louderthansilver.com
