Moving is a stressful task, we all know that. You have to do so many things; getting your child in a new school, packing everything in boxes, scheduling the movers; it all can cause a hard time for you and your family. At the end you will realize that it's not impossible to get everything done on time and in timely manner.
Try to organize your activities. Provide a checklist of different tasks that should be accomplished at the end. You should provide a checklist at least one month before moving and it should be well advanced, it's that simple. Write down few important things that should not be forgotten and attach it on your fridge, it is a perfect place where everyone can see it. If you remember something that has not been written on that checklist, write it there immediately, if not you might forget about it. Once the moving time is getting closer, you might want to upgrade your checklist into the calendar format, where each day will be focused on certain task.
There should be useful information such as notifying your phone company that you are leaving. Once the task is accomplished and dealt with it, cross it out. You will be able to control all your activities. You can also modify your list. Add the certain person name that needs to do the next task in the checklist and by what time he has to finish it. Controlling everything is the key for perfect moving. When the certain task is completed, cross out of the checklist those people who were responsible for it. Using this method you will easily avoid any unneeded problems.
It's just natural, that once the moving time comes closer there will be plenty of task left on your checklist that are unfinished and needs to be done. Just make sure that the first thing that you need to do is to pack your things. On the other hand the last thing to do is to unpack your boxes at your new house. Sometimes it's necessary to add some specific tasks to your checklist, but there is no time left, then you have to see them by situation if it can be done quickly or not. Most common tasks that your list might include are:Buy boxes and get some packing materials, maybe instructions if needed.
