No matter how many times you’ve moved in the past, moving to a new home will always be stressful. All that stress can easily lead you to make a few mistakes in the moving and packing process. While your moving company will help eliminate some of that stress, it’s up to you to avoid making the most common moving mistakes. Though some mistakes can derail your move, others are perfectly harmless. Here are a few of the most common moving mistakes that are not worth stressing over.
Not Being Ready
Moves happen whether you want them to or not. This means you’ll still need to move out of your house even if you’re not quite ready or packed up. Though this will make a move more stressful, it won’t make it impossible. If you find yourself rushing to pack up your home, don’t panic. Just be prepared to throw those few last-minute things into boxes and haul them to your new house, whether they’re organized or not. You can always sort through things once you’re at your new home.
Forgetting to Buy Enough Packing Supplies
Unfortunately, it’s easy to underestimate how much you have to pack up before starting in earnest. If you run out of packing materials, don’t panic—get creative. Find tote bags, plastic storage bins, and even shoeboxes and load your items inside. Worst case, you can always head to your local hardware store to pick up a few more boxes and some packing tape. The important thing to remember is not to panic. Packing supplies are easy to come by and should not be a source of stress or concern when you’re moving.
Not Decluttering Your House
Ultimately, if you still have junk and clutter lying around when the time comes to load the moving truck, it’s not the end of the world. Your movers will still be able to pack those items up and deliver them to your new house. But it does mean you’ll have more to go through when you get to your new home. Instead of panicking about the extra stuff, mentally prepare to go through it once you get to your new house.
You Pack Your Essentials Bag in a Box
Ultimately, going without a toothbrush for a day or two is not the end of the world. And when you’re moving, you have far more important things to worry about. If you can’t find your essentials bag, don’t panic. Instead, head to the dollar store and pick up a few items to tide you over. Once you get to your new home, you’ll find your bag eventually.
