Take. Deep. Breaths. Planning is good, but go with the flow, too.
Moving is just like organizing any event and things may not go according to plan. You may have to be a little resilient, but realize the end result will be worth the energy you’ve put into it. The following is a moving day checklist to ensure you’re ready to go: ■ Organize movers and the move out process prior to moving day. ■ If moving locally, recruit help to watch your small kids and pets. ■ Have a light meal prepared for your friends and family to provide them with a little sustenance to make the move easier for everyone. ■ Collect everyone’s cell phone numbers on the off-chance you get separated from your movers or run into any other problems. ■ Ask your movers up front about their preferred form of payment and have it ready when you arrive at the new place. ■ Have directions mapped out for everyone who will be driving between your old house and new house
