Time Management: How To Manage Your Time On Moving Day

Moving day is an exciting experience, yet it can be overwhelming, The secret to successful and smooth moving is an organization. This entails planning and proper time management. For most people, they focus on managing their time during the actual moving day-from the time it takes to pack, transport to unloading your belongings to your new space. 

The key to making your move less challenging is to plan days before your actual move. Start early to save enough time and prevent last-minute hiccups. The moment you set a moving date, you should be able to start packing your items, especially when they are plenty. Procrastination may be tempting but bear in mind that the less time you spend on packing, the more difficult and challenging it is during your actual moving day.

Pack Daily 

One tip is to pack little by little starting with the things that you use less often. These things include seasonal items, excess clothes, kitchenware you only use for special occasions, and basically anything you do not use but cannot get rid of due to its sentimental value.

Dedicate A Space For Packing 

When you have a designated place where you can pack, it is easier for you as having your packing materials all over the place will waste time, making you less productive. Make sure to have your materials ready in place so you won’t take the time to search for it.

Resist The Urge To Reminisce

While packing for your move, resist the temptation to spend a lot of time reminiscing on your belongings. You may find yourself making the trip to memory lane as you pack your old photo albums or keepsakes. Before you know it, you’ll be wasting your time on a single item. Remember that you have all the time to do this, once you move to your new home. 

Enumerate The Things That Don’t Need Packing. 

These are the things that should not be away from you. This could include your toiletries, perishables, and important documents that you can carry yourself. With a list of things you don’t have to pack, you’ll save time deciding whether or not you need to pack them otherwise-especially during the exact same moment of packing. 

Learn To Establish Your Priorities

Consider all the things that you need to get done before and during your moving day. You can categorize them using the following classifications;

  • Important And Urgent
  • Important But Not Urgent
  • Urgent But Not Important 
  • Not Urgent And Not Important

For instance, packing your intimate belongings and toiletries is important but not urgent- meaning, the time it takes for you to pack these does not matter as long as you get it done right before your move. By doing so, you’ll have enough time to pack the most important things.
