There is a copious amount of research surrounding stress. Data has shown that moving ranks higher than other stressors such as divorce or a death in the family. It is important to consider that oftentimes moving takes place in conjunction with additional life changes, which can intensify the stress level associated with moving. Are you stressed already just reading about this? Don't worry! We put together some tools and tips designed to have an organized move and reduce your moving stress. You may even have some fun along the way.
Here are my favorite moving organization tips:
You may be wondering how photos have anything to do with moving. I promise that photos will reduce your stress. Here's how:
Don't be that person who is pulling out of the driveway for the last time thinking, "Oh no! I forgot to forward my mail." Complete the mail forwarding paperwork early. It may take the post office up to a month to process it, so leave plenty of time.
Does the thought of having no internet send you into an immediate panic? If so, handle this annoying formality early. Electricity and water are also important, so don't forget about those utilities. It is better to turn them on early than arrive at your new place and be left in the dark...literally.

It is 33 pages of heaven sent guidance on how to organize for a move. If you love checklists and want a stress-free move, these moving planner printables is the tool to make it happen.

If you have the means, consider hiring professionals. There is no shame in needing help. Professional movers can help you pack, lift, and haul the contents of your home faster and safer.
When things get hectic and most of your life is packed into boxes, you will be grateful to have your moving day essentials box. Pack things you use on a daily basis, such as:
