Make a plan with your moving date, inventory list, other important dates around the move, packing supplies and contacts for moving companies and friends that will help you with the move.
Keeping everything together and managing your time is essential during a move.
make planswith your friends
Don’t hide in your emotions but rather go out and make some plans with your friends.
Don’t leave them behind.
The fact that you’re moving doesn’t mean that you have to stop talking to them.
The most important thing is the support you get from the people around you.

One of the advantages of packing and moving is the clearance of the house.
Many people store items that they never use.
Not only do they require space but it’s also an emotional baggage that we carry with ourselves.
Getting rid of unwanted items makes space for new emotions.
You can make some profit out of it as well.

Another amazing opportunity is to give these stuff to charity.
It’s a good deed and you will make some space for new items that you can and you will actually use.
Whichever you choose it’s a good start.
Start with some positive energy.
Everyone has different reasons for moving.
Weather it was your choice to move or not, find the best angle and hold onto it.
The unknown is often even better than what you expect so embrace your fate and start thinking about all the good stuff that are on the way.
There is a bunch of new challenged to experience and a bunch of new people to meet and make some lifelong friendships.
Start packing as soonas you get your moving date
Don’t leave packing for the last minute.
As soon as you get your moving date start by dividing your stuff into rooms and boxes.
Leave all the essential stuff that you use every day for last.
For example leave the kitchen utilities, bathroom essentials and bedroom accessories for the last day.
Make a basic list of what each box contains so you smooth your unpacking.
Label your boxes and leave them in the storage room or a place, which won’t be on your way every day.
Packing as soon as you get your moving date can actually influence your move a lot so keep that in mind.

Start doing some research.
Whatever you’re interested in- find it in your new place.
Get to know the place you’re moving to by exploring the surroundings.
Find the best bars, restaurants, schools, malls.
Try Yelp for some recommendations for anything that interests you in the surroundings.
Try socializing with your new neighbors and colleagues.
Best way to do that is through Nextdoor app or website or at work.
Don’t focus on the move fully, give yourself some free time to let the weight off your shoulders.
