Your big break at work finally happened. All your prayers have been answered, and you can just imagine better days from now on. The only problem is the promotion is in a new office in a different state. Your boss expects you to commit, and you really want to, but how do you pack up your life just like that?
It’s easier than you think. Let these tips help you manage everything:
Pack only the essentials
You used to think this was your home, so you’ve amassed quite the amount of stuff that you now have to worry about packing. But don’t let the thought overwhelm you. The truth is you don’t have to pack everything and carry them with you.
Some of them can go into storage with the help of long-distance moving and storage companies, while others you can sell or keep in your parents’ house for safekeeping.
Make it a collective effort
There are two kinds of help you need when moving a great distance: free help and enlisted help. Your friends who support you, and your family who will miss you, they can all contribute to the move.
Give them tasks such as packing or folding clothes while talking about all the fun you’ll have when they visit. Enlisted help in the form of a moving company can handle all the heavy lifting and the transportation.
Store everything properly
You’ve already segregated your stuff depending on which you’ll bring and which you will leave behind. But you still feel that you’ll need a lot of space to store them for the move.
The secret is being smart and wise when packing. Use the space inside large appliances. Cabinets and refrigerators can accommodate a lot, which cuts down on a couple of boxes inside the moving truck.
Don’t let a good opportunity pass you by. Fill up those moving trucks and be on your merry way.
