How To Stay Organized When You Have To Move In A Hurry

How To Stay Organized When You Have To Move In A Hurry

Posted on: October 8, 2019

Share this:    

Moving is a hassle under any circumstances.

If you have to be out of your home in a hurry, the stress is amplified.

A difficult task turns into something overwhelming that might seem impossible.

You're probably moving for a new job, a new school, or a unique opportunity, so in addition to the move, you have much more on your plate to worry about.

With that in mind, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself organized so you can beat your deadline.

No matter why you're moving, these tips will help you stay calm and as stress-free as possible as you go through the moving process.

Ask For Help

Loading heavy boxes and awkward furniture into a moving truck is a big job.

If your move is turning out to be too big of a job for you to do on your own, you might need to ask for help.

There are likely dozens of moving companies in your area that will help you get the job done, and most of them also offer packing services as well.

Having a team of professionals help you with your move will make everything much easier without any of the stress.

You'll have to pay for this service, of course, so be sure to get several quotes before you commit to one company.

Whatever you end up paying will likely be worth it to make your move as simple as possible.

If you don't want to spend the extra money, put on a big smile and ask your family and friends to help out.

Make it a "packing party" and have food and drinks and party favors in exchange for helping you get to your new home.

Make A To-Do List

Deciding to move can be a fantastic and stressful decision all at once, especially if you have to do it on a deadline.

The first thing you should do once you've decided to move is to get out a pen and paper and start your to-do list.

This will help you immediately organize your thoughts and give you the structure you need to make it through your move.

Start by doing a brain dump of everything you might need to do during the move.

Everything from packing socks to finding a moving company should go on your list.

Once you've dumped everything from your brain onto a piece of paper, do it again, this time organizing it in chronological order.

When you're done, make copies of it for everyone involved in the move, and keep it in your back pocket so you can refer to it whenever you need.

Add to it as you go; you aren't going to think of everything when you first start brainstorming.

Check off everything as you go, and communicate with everyone else involved, so your lists stay identical.

How to move in a hurry

Use A System

As you pack, it'll be easier for you and everyone else if you follow a system that keeps everything organized.

The system will vary from person to person because no two people are alike, but there are a few constants that everyone should be aware of.

  • Gathering everything you'll need to get the room packed.

  • Use soft items like t-shirts or oven mitts to protect fragile items

  • Don't unpack clothes from their drawers. Secure them closed and move them as-is.

  • Use a color-coded labeling system with markers that allows you to see where boxes belong at a glance.

  • Make a list of the items in each box. This will keep you from looking for items that you need when you get to your new home.

No matter what system you use, consistency is key.

Follow the same system for every box and every room.

This will help you stay organized, and you will become more efficient as your system becomes second nature.

Make Your Own Deadlines

To make sure you meet the deadline you have to be out of your house, you should set your own deadlines.

Go through your to-do list and set a deadline for each item.

To give yourself an extra push, set a few hard deadlines.

For example, schedule your donation pick up the same day you've planned to clean out your garage.

Since other people will be depending on you, you'll be more likely to stay on task.

You Can Do It

Moving is stressful, inconvenient, but a necessary evil.

If you've landed your dream job, found an excellent school system for your children, or just feel like a change of scenery, you'll have to move your things.

And that job usually has a firm start date, and the first day of school is going to come quicker than you realize.

If you use the tips we mentioned above, though, you will rock your move and be ready to being your new life before you know it.

If you're in need of new furniture after you move, visit the Furniture of Dalton.

Furniture of Dalton offers the highest quality furniture and interior design options in concert with a staff that understands the industry.
