EnergyAustralia asked me to contribute my top tip for moving house…. Hmmm I had to think! I have a few tips seeing as I’ve moved quite a few times. We’ve built and renovated numerous times and in doing so we’ve also had to rent while our projects are completed. Also, when I was a kid growing up my Dad was a bank manager and we moved every 3 years or so. My Mum was an expert at moving and she is a master at culling and decluttering. I definitely got my skills from her. I don’t hoard a thing and I am ruthless at throwing things out.
Anyhoo, this would be my biggest tip:
Have a big cull and declutter before you move. Don’t take any unnecessary items with you to your new home because this will make the unpacking process so much more stressful. It’s best to move around from room to room in your old house and be prepared to toss items before you go. Donate what you can and cull before you move rather than thinking about it at the other end. That way when you land at your new home you’ll only be unpacking the important things you want to keep, meaning there’ll be less mess and stress!
EnergyAustralia asked 3 other bloggers what their tip would be too. Click over to EnergyAustralia’s HUB here and see what Yvette, Skye and Lisa also recommend. Very useful ideas!
Are you moving house too at the moment? What would your tip be?
