*Collaborative Post.

Moving to a new neighbourhood is an exciting time for you but can also bring about additional strain and worry. There’s a lot to do and you may be anxious about getting all your stuff together in an orderly and timely fashion.

Moving house doesn’t always have to be overwhelming and messy. Instead, apply the following tips to make moving house less stressful and chaotic. This way you can ensure a smooth process from start to finish and truly enjoy yourself once you’re all settled into your new property.

Lighten Your Load

If you want to make moving house less stressful and chaotic then find ways to lighten your load. Spend time decluttering your belongings so that you only pack up and bring with you what you need and will use. You’ll have fewer boxes and items to move this way, which will also reduce the cost of moving. Keep the stuff that you know you want to hang onto and donate or toss the rest depending on what it is and its condition.

Get Organised & Label Your Boxes

Another tip that will make moving house less stressful and chaotic is to get organised as early as possible. Prepare yourself for the move by making to-do lists and a timeline for when all your tasks need to be completed by. Gather all the moving supplies you need and then make an effort to properly label your boxes according to where they will go in your new home.

Have A Plan for Moving Day

It’s also in your best interest to have a plan for moving day. Work ahead at the office and take off from your job so you can be fully immersed and involved in the move itself. Look into hiring professional packing and moving help such as reserving a Mobile Storage service and unit that you can use in the midst of your move. They’ll make sure that your belongings are kept safe until you need them back and then they will deliver them right to your door.

Take Breaks & Take Care of Yourself

If you’re going to reduce the stress and chaos that sometimes comes with moving house you’ll want to make sure you take breaks away from it all. You should make time for other hobbies and activities to give yourself a rest from packing and thinking about moving house. It’s especially important that you take good care of yourself during this time so that you have the energy and focus you need to get everything done. Be sure to get plenty of sleep, eat healthily, and reduce your stress by taking time out of your busy schedule to exercise.


These tips will make moving house less stressful and chaotic for you and your family. While there’s a lot to do, if you’re organised and well-rested it won’t feel so overwhelming for you. Continue to remind yourself that it won’t be long before you’re in your new home and focusing on decorating and making it your own.
