Avoid Freaking Out About Moving Your Stuff
Moving any place carries its own set of challenges. I personally hate packing my belongings, and it seems like there is no way to avoid your life being thrown into a state of upheaval.
However, here are a few tips that may help make the process a little less stressful:
1 - Make a list of everything you need to do. Since moving involves not only packing, you'll want to be sure you remember to call the phone company, cable company, electricity company, etc, and, as the date gets closer, these are the things that often slip your mind and cause stress - so keep them on your list which should be stored someplace visible.
2 - Outsource what you hate most. Take that list of things you need to do, and note the ones you hate the most, or that cause you the most stress. If you feel that it will ease your stress dramatically, consider hiring someone to do the pieces you hate the most. For example, you can pay a moving company a little extra to pack your boxes for you.
3 - Ask for help! Moving is a huge job, you don't have to do it by yourself. Consider hiring a handyman to help you remove fixtures you're taking with you, or offer your friends a free dinner if they'll help you pack or unpack boxes.
