Moving in the Alameda Area?
You’re probably in complete control of all the millions of details, right? Packed — check, utilities — check, checklist — check. No? If you’re still sweating how to get your move in order, these tips will help you stay on top of everything that needs to happen in a short period of time.
Create (and Use!) Checklists
There are plenty of apps that will help you get ready for a move, but a free one that is extremely collaborative is Google Keep. Available for Apple iOS or Android, Google Keep allows you to share checklists between different family members and friends. That way, whenever you think of something that needs to be done, you’re not scrambling for that all-important piece of paper that your dog probably ran off with last week. Google Keep is the digital version of your personal to-do list, and even allows you to check items off as they’re completed.
Pack Room-by-Room for a Smooth Move
If something that’s still on your to-do list is packing, here’s a solid tip. Only pack items from one room in a particular box or bag. That way, you can clearly label every box by room and limit confusion as you’re unpacking in your new location.
Start Earlier Than You Think
It doesn’t help your stress levels to wait too long before you get started on your move. Instead, start packing up items that you don’t use as soon as you make a decision on a move — even before you set the final date! This could be anything from off-season clothing to items that you know will need to go into storage for a short period of time during your move.
