Moving can take a substantial amount of time and results in significant amounts of stress. However, moving can also be incredibly exciting. Taking the steps to ensure that the move goes as smoothly as possible can ensure that you remain more excited than stressed throughout your move. 

Begin Early

Moving takes large amounts of time. Procrastinating the moving process is one of the main reasons that moving can be incredibly stressful. If you begin packing early on, you will be able to ensure that everything functions more efficiently and reduce your total stress levels. 

Keep Everything Organized

Organization is the key to completing a stress-free move. Make lists and keep everything together. You may want to develop a color code to ensure that movers know which box goes in which room. Construct a plan to ensure that you pack in an efficient, logical manner. It can be particularly helpful to ensure that certain objects are packed together, such as lightbulbs and lamps or screws and disassembled furniture. 

Pack an Essentials Box

After a long day of moving, you may be too tired to begin the unpacking process. Separate your essentials into a designated box to ensure that you will be able to find them easily. Ensure that you clearly label this box to prevent it from getting lost among all of the other boxes. 


When you remain in one place for an extended period of time, it is easy to accumulate clutter. Take some time before moving day to sort through your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer want or need. By reducing your belongings, you will substantially simplify the move. When it comes to moving, preparing in advance and keeping organized can substantially improve your move and minimize your stress. Following these steps can go a long way toward simplifying your move. To learn more about simplifying the moving process, contact us at the Keyrenter in Sacramento today!
