In this article we will discuss the most popular and useful tips that have helped thousands of people to plan their move and prepare for it the right way. We hope this material will help you organize your own move.

While most people agree that moving is stressful, there are ways to ensure you have a much less stressful move than you thought possible. There are lots of ways to reduce the stress of moving so you can actually enjoy the moment, look forward to the change and know that this move can be a positive and rewarding experience, which will possibly improve your life at a new place.

First, you need to remember that time is not always in your control. Sometimes a move sneaks up on us, forcing us to move last minute, and we have to act fast. If you can plan ahead, try to allow yourself at least eight weeks. I highly recommend twelve, especially if you need to hire movers and/or if you're planning a summer move. But everything can be done without too much stress within eight weeks so that’s why it is often considered to be the optimal time interval to prepare for your move.

Give yourself time as no one can plan things in the short term without failing.

To stay organized during your move, make a list of all the tasks you need to do, then divide them into weeks, allowing yourself enough days to complete everything on that week's list. If you're unsure where to start, check out an eight-week plan that will ensure you stay on track. I also recommend you tackle this one: getting rid of the clutter will help you be, and feel, more organized. It will also ensure that when you begin packing, you'll only be packing the things that you need to. There's nothing more frustrating than packing items you're going to get rid of after the move.

You're going to be living in chaos for a while, with boxes everywhere and things feeling out of control. It's normal to be upset when you can't find the spatula or the crock pot; just remember to consult your lists and know that you're organized and on track for this move.

One more thing, don’t forget about a back-up plan. Now, I'm not talking about creating a full back-up plan, but rather that you have a list of options should some of the major pieces of your move fall out of place. For instance, I always keep a short list of back up movers and rental agencies, just in case. When it’s finally time for you to move into your new home, also remember that it'll take a while for this new space to feel like your own - for you and your family to settle in. Give it time.
