I’m moving in 3 days and i’m not motivated to pack at all. I haven’t put a single thing into a box yet. I’m excited to move and everything but for some reason I cannot get motivated. Maybe it’s because I technically have all month to get stuff out of my current place. However my friends and I have a moving date planned in 3 days and I want to get most (if not all) of my stuff over to my new place in one go, any moving tips/advice? What would be a good thing to pack first to get me started?
Maybe you are not motivated because you’re thinking about all the junk and rubbish you are going to take with you!
1. Think about what you can throw out or give away and get rid of that first. Get it out of your current place. Moving old stuff, worn out stuff and stuff you don’t want any longer is a depressing job!
2. Next, get boxes for putting stuff in and dedicate one (or more) boxes to each room. If you only have one bedroom to pack up, then dedicate one box for each piece of furniture you have in YOUR NEW PLACE. You can colour code the boxes if that will make it easier to unpack them or get them moved in when you go.
3. Decide what you do not need for the next 3 days and pack one box at a time. You can even spend just 10 minutes packing, then take a rest and come back for another 10 minutes. Think about what you need to pack for YOUR NEW FURNITURE in your new place.
4. Leave a box for the stuff you will need up until you move. On moving day, pack that just before going.
