If you have ever moved house you'll know that it can be one of the most stressful things you can do in your lifetime. Whether you're buying a new property or moving into somewhere that you're renting, a lot of preparation takes place in order to make the whole process work. In fact, the more preparation you can do beforehand, the better.
If there is one piece of information I can give you when it comes to moving house, it is to ensure that you are as organised as possible. I am a massive fan of writing lists, and a list of tasks can be a really good place to start. Even a basic list of what needs to be done when moving house is a good place to start. That way, you get a sense of achievement when you're able to tick these off too - great for motivation!
Preparation is Key
It is all well and good being organised, but it is also a good idea to make sure you know what you are dealing with. Get things like removal quotes, broadband prices and your utilities sorted out well in advance. This will mean that you have less to worry about when things get hectic as moving day approaches.
Just remember, that whatever you do - things are likely to get hectic. You can be really organised and get everything prepped in advance, but you can almost guarantee that something will come along and put a spanner in the works. Just remind yourself that in the end it'll all be worth it and you'll soon be in your brand new house, enjoying a cup of tea on your sofa - heaven!
