Moving is quite possibly one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life.
In order for a move to be smooth and successful you’ll need to be prepared. Make lists, check them twice, start getting your home in order and preparing the kids and pets for a big change.
In the month before you move, apart from all the packing and panicking, there are a few things that you need to remember to do: newspaper and magazine subscriptions need to be either cancelled or moved to the new address, you’ll also need to notify your creditors of your new address (bank, credit card, medical aid etc.).
Don’t forget to send a letter or an email to all of your friends and family members notifying them of your new address (you never know they may just send you something nice for the new place).
One of the greatest things about moving is that you get to get rid of all of the junk unworn clothes and unused items that are inherent to every home. As you are packing be ruthless; anything that you don’t need or want needs to be put aside and can be given to a charity. This way you’ll at least start off with a clutter free home on the other side.

It’s important to remember to pack all boxes to capacity, the undefiled ones are more likely to be crushed in the move and the overfilled ones will inevitable break under the strain.
Packing up one room at a time is a great idea. This way you can ensure that you have everything in that room packed up together and labelled accordingly. Make sure you indicate which way is up with an arrow – you’ll be thankful once the movers arrive. It’s also a good idea to label the furniture according to which room it is going to be in, in the new home.
