10 easy tips for moving house
Lighten your load
Now is the time to get rid of extra stuff that you no longer use or want, long before it's time to pack. Get your kids to try on all their clothes and sort through their toys. You can either sell unwanted items, or give them to charity. Either way, you are saving yourself time and money by not moving unnecessary items to the new house.
Order boxes early
Don't order moving cartons a few days before the move. Rather, get them as much as 3 weeks earlier. Yes, they may make the house messy for longer, but giving yourself plenty of time to pack means that you will pack more efficiently. Plus you'll realize in time if you have too few boxes and need to order more.
