Preparation is Key!

Moving on Mondays

Moving isn't easy. Not only are you trying to get through your daily activities, you have all the extra tasks of packing and looking for a new home. In order to make your move as smooth as possible, enlist the help of family members in both the execution and maintenance of all the tasks involved. Everyone should help with whatever they can on their level, whether it's teens decluttering and packing their bedrooms, or middle school children sorting through their books and toys, everyone can pitch in.

Older children and spouses can complete the files you've been collecting, make phone calls or run errands. Hold weekly meetings to keep everyone informed on the progress of the packing and move, and assign the tasks for the upcoming week. Have each person give a progress report of the previously assigned tasks. You may need to have meetings more frequently as the moving date looms closer.

Don't try and do everything yourself! You will suffer physically and emotionally.
