Storing Smarter Every Day

I have always been the kind of person who loves organization, which is why inheriting a bunch of items from a long lost aunt was really difficult for me. I realized that I couldn't part with things, but I knew that I had to store things in a smart way if I wanted to have enough room. I started going through things, nesting boxes, and working on a viable solution, and before I knew it, things were really coming together. I wanted to start a blog for people who need help storing things, so that you can get the advice you need.

6 Weeks Of Moving – Making It Less Stressful At The Last Minute

If you're lucky, you have several weeks to plan for your move. Having this much time to work with will allow you the opportunity to get the many tasks that need done little by little instead of struggling to get it all done at once. Here, you will learn a step to take each week during the 6 weeks leading up to your move.

6 Weeks Out

Now's the time to start looking for the moving company that will be helping you. If you were to wait until the last couple of weeks before the move to start looking for a moving company, you'd have fewer options to consider and may have a difficult time finding one to book for the day that you plan to move.

5 Weeks Out

Two things for you to do now – order new checks and take care of the kids' educational needs.

Since checks can take several weeks to receive, now's the time to order them. Getting the checks ordered this far in advance will make it possible to receive them at your current address before the move. This way, you will not have any issues using checks from day one at the new house.

The kids' education is of the utmost importance. Take the time now to contact the old school to have the kids' records to the new school. Some districts require a signature to have the papers sent, so be prepared to visit the school to get this task completed.

4 Weeks Out

You will need utilities at your new home. Take this time to look into the utility companies in the area. Compare rates and the customer reviews of the services. It can take several days, sometimes weeks to get the new service installed, so thinking ahead will help to ensure that you have all of the utilities you need the minute you walk in the door.

Contact your current utility companies and schedule a disconnect service. This way, your utilities will be shut off the day you leave and you won't be responsible for services after you leave.

3 Weeks Out

Head over to your post office and fill out the forms for the change of address. List the date in which your move is scheduled so that they know to forward anything that they receive beyond that point to the new home.

2 Weeks Out

Contact your creditors and tell them of the address change. Some companies will post-date the call and make sure that the changes are made the day that you move.

Starting the process of moving 6 weeks out will eliminate a lot of the stress that you could experience during the last week. Get planning now and be glad you have so much time to work with. For more information, visit websites like http://www.bekins.com.
