We all know packing up and moving is stressful. We all know the holiday season is stressful. Now combining the two? That’s a recipe for a stress overload. However, sometimes a holiday move may be necessary. So, let’s go over some moving tips for a stress-free move and a stress-free holiday.
Tips for an Easy Holiday Move
Move the day after celebration
Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, you have to make time for family. That’s the whole point! So, take advantage of your family being around and wait until the day after a celebration to move, when things start to wind down. It’s also good to do it around this time because all your family will still be around, so you can get help from them.
Get everything ready ahead of time. You can be packing up while the holiday and the celebrating is still going on. By the time moving day rolls around, the only thing you should have out are your holiday decorations. The idea is to pack the things you know you won’t be using first, so that way, they’re out of sight and out of mind while the festivities are going on, but you can rest assured that they are taken care of.
Stay in the holiday spirit
Don’t let your holiday move put a damper on the joy of celebration. Instead, be happy, be present, and have fun. The best way to do that is to pack ahead of time, like we already talked about. But, if it becomes too much, take a break. Seriously! It’s the holidays! Relax and hang out with your family!
