My Moving Plan

How to Create a Moving Plan

For the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to figure out my plan of attack for this move.  I’ve figured out the best way to approach this is the way I do everything else.  When I have a big task ahead of me, I make a list of all the pieces that are necessary to get me to the bigger goal.

I’m a list gal and this move won’t be any different!  There are a few things I know for sure, one of them being that I’m not moving with junk.  What I mean by junk is that I won’t be moving with anything I already know I need to either toss out or give away.  I’m sure you’ve moved a time or 2 so you know that you don’t realize how much stuff you have until you are ready to move!

Right about now, I’m wondering why I didn’t toss stuff out-at least clothes when the seasons were changing all these years.  Every year I switch my Winter clothes for my Spring clothes, but for the past couple pf years, I haven’t done the best with tossing out the stuff I don’t need. 

My list continues to grow, but here is what I have thus far.  My move date is Saturday, May 21st and since I like to do things ahead of time, I plan on being finished by Saturday, May 14th with the help of a friend.  At this point, I need to:

  1. Trash, sell, or give away tings I don’t need.  My rule of thumb is that if I haven’t used it within a year, I must not need it and it’s okay to throw away.
  2. Now that it’s Spring, I need to go through all of my clothes.  I’ll start with Winter and then move to my Spring and Summer clothes.
  3. Go through file cabinets and sort through old papers.

It probably sounds funny that I am organizing BEFORE I move, but as I mentioned before, I don’t want to move with things I already know I know longer want or need!

With this move, my goal is to move light!
See ya later!
