Are you planning to move this summer?
National Moving Day is always the Tuesday after Memorial Day, and this year it will fall on May 30th. We all know that moving can be very stressful. If you want to reduce the stress, you have to start early.
So, what can you do now to prepare? Purge, Purge, Purge and Pack, Pack, Pack. The more time you allow yourself the better off you will be. When we do not allow enough time, we end up packing things that we do really love, want, need, or use. This is a waste of energy, time, and often times, money! Instead, purge out everything that you do not want in your new home. Contact your favorite charity and arrange for them to come pick up your donations. This is an added benefit, too, because it provides a deadline and will force you to get busy. If you are planning to purge and pack in stages, then commit to dropping off the donations REGULARLY. The last thing you need is a bunch of bags or boxes in your way that are going to be donated. Get rid of them now! And remember to get your tax donation receipt.
