1. Start Planning as Soon as You Know You’re Moving

Moving requires a lot of moving parts. Having a plan of action going into your move can save you from a lot of stress. One of the most important things you should plan out is a moving schedule, which involves jotting down the things you need to do and when you’ll need to do them by. 

2. Stay on Schedule

Now that you’ve made a schedule, you’ll need to stick to it. Certain aspects of moving like school enrollment, transferring utilities, etc, require timely action and should be done proactively rather than last minute. Try using your phone's calendar or other calendar apps to set up reminders as to when you need to do certain tasks. 

3. Take Inventory of Your Belongings

A great way to determine how long your packing will take is to take an inventory of your belongings when making your schedule. For this, you don't necessarily need to take an inventory, but taking a good look at how much stuff you truly have can help you determine how long each room will take to pack. 

4. Ask Friends and Family for Help

If you plan on asking your family and friends for help, the best time to ask would be now. Moving is a difficult task, but it doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. Ask friends and family for help in advance so they can let you know whether or not they will be able to help.
