Resourceful Repurposing

You can save money when acquiring packing materials for moving, and reduce waste, by repurposing items you already own or have around the house to pack effectively. Use towels, shower curtains and trash bags as packing materials or protective covers so you don’t have to buy anything new. You can even use pool noodles to protect furniture corners, craft moving carts from cardboard boxes, which you can use to easily move items around, or repurpose old clothing as padding for fragile items. Most of these things can also be re-used once you arrive in your new home meaning wastage from your move is reduced to an absolute minimum

Time-Saving Techniques

Although it may seem like the build-up to a big move takes forever, things start to move fast if you are not properly prepared. The best way to save time and get ahead of schedule is by packing non-essentials well in advance, labelling boxes clearly and consistently, and utilising color-coding systems to enhance organisation and ensure that you know where everything should go when you reach your destination.

Stress-Reduction Strategies

Moving house has been shown to be one of the most stressful life events that most people experience, so it’s understandable if things feel overwhelming. However, there are ways to manage your stress and ease the burden, especially by doing things that make you feel more organised, and like everything is under control. You can start by creating a moving checklist so you know everything that needs to be done (Scotty’s The Movers’ moving checklist template makes this easy). You can then schedule breaks between important tasks, so you don’t burn out and can conserve energy to keep going. Finally, it’s always a good idea to ask willing friends and family for help wherever you can.
