How to Move Quickly When You Have Less Than a Month
By Diane Schmidt
Sort Your Stuff
Get rid of junk. The great thing about last-minute moves is that you tend to be ruthless in how you sort and pack. And this is a good thing since the more stuff you get rid of, the less you have to pack and move which equals less time and energy. Some people think that to save time, they should just pack everything they own and sort later. Not so. Get rid of as much stuff as you can – that’s rule #1!
Make three piles. Go through each room and separate items into three piles: 1) Stuff to keep 2) Stuff to donate or sell online or at a garage sale and 3) Stuff to recycle or toss. If you haven’t used it or worn it for a year, give it away or toss it. Get the whole family involved by having them follow this rule and sorting through their own stuff. My own personal rule is, if, when deciding whether to keep or toss something, if I hesitate, I toss it.
Ask for Help
Call on: 1) friends and family and/or 2) professional services. Family and friends are always anxious to help out. Just make sure that before you enlist their support, you have a clear idea of what you need them to do. Packing stuff in your “to keep” pile is a great task as is the job of getting rid of the stuff you don’t want to keep.
