Top Organisation Tips for Moving

Mintbox understands that moving is one of those words that is synonymous with stress. Even if the end result is something you are ecstatic about, you still have to get through all the stress and hard work it will take to get to your new home. Here are some tips you can do to try to keep sane and make sure your moving organisation is the best it can be throughout:

Make a ‘moving check-list

 Jot down a list of every little thing you need to get done from now till move in day. Get it all out of your head and down on paper. Then, each morning, move part of that list into your daily “to do” and start tackling.

Start Early Organisations and Packing

Try packing a few boxes each night for the entire month. This way it won’t be so overwhelming at the end to get it all done at once.

Make Your Calls All Together

Set aside one hour to just continuously call each utility, each credit card, each physician, each online account, etc., and update your address. Just rip off the band-aid all at once and it’ll be over before you know it.

Purge/Donate/Sell before moving

Have “give away”, “toss” and “sell” boxes tucked in the corner to fill as you pack. Getting rid of your extra weight now is going to make your move a lot easier, and cheaper if you are paying movers. We love donating previously loved clothing to people who will give it a great new life! Read where to donate clothes in Cape Town here.

Colour Coordinate for MORE Organisation

Often an overlooked moving tip: choose a colour for each room and mark each box accordingly. This will keep your moving organisation in order.

Organise

Label each of your boxes with what room it will go in and what’s inside. This will help the boxes get to their correct destination and save you endless hours of rummaging through boxes over and over trying to find your cell phone cord, etc.

Stay Calm and Relax

It is very easy to get out of control and overwhelmed when you are faced with so much to do in such little time. So remember to breathe, and just keep telling yourself that you have done this before (assuming you have) and have gotten through it each time. Once you are settled in your new home, kicking back and drinking your glass of wine, you’ll forget all about how much of a pain it was to get there. We’ve been loving this wine for post a move cool-down.
