So you are planning to move…get ready for an adventure that you soon will not forget. Moving doesn’t have to be stressful however, if you take a few simple steps to help you prepare for your big move. First of all relax and realize people move every day and they are just fine and make it through to the other side nicely.
One way you can prepare for your big move is by having some things done in advance. If you know you are going to need a lot of boxes, go ahead and have those either purchased or borrowed weeks in advance. You can even begin to label boxes if you really want to get a head start on things.
Another way to prepare for your big move is to de-clutter your home. More than likely there are things around your house that you do not use or that you do not need to keep. Now is the time to go through things and purge what you have been planning to get rid of for years but have never had the heart to do it. The less stuff you have to move, the easier the move will be on the entire family. Have each child do the same with their individual rooms. They can make a couple boxes to keep and make one large box of items to give away to needy families. Especially around this time of year with the holidays coming up, needy families would love to have some of the things you no longer need or want. Make it a fun event and talk about how the families will love to receive your items as gifts.
Yet another great way to prepare for your big move is by talking to your children about where you will be moving to and what all there is there for them to do and see. Talk about meeting new friends but keeping the old. Make up songs about how their life will be enhanced by the move and how they can keep all the wonderful memories they have made while at the home you currently live in. Perhaps they can write letters to the people who may move in after you and tell them all the wonderful secrets there are to tell about fun places to play inside the house. You can make most anything an adventure if you take a little time and effort to put some thought into it.
Just remember that once you move to your new location all will settle down in a short amount of time and life will go on beautifully.
