Tips for Moving During the Holiday Season

Planning for a Holiday Move

Moving during the holiday season can add another level of stressors to an already stressful and busy time of year. If you find yourself needing to pack up and move to a new home over the holidays, don't worry — we've got you covered!

At Go Mini's, we understand that moving is never easy, but hopefully, these tips will help make the process a little bit easier.

Get Started Early

The earlier you start planning your move, the better. This will give you plenty of time to declutter your home, pack up your belongings, and make arrangements for things like utilities and movers.

Starting this process early will get things out of the way and make room for you to enjoy your holiday plans without having to stress about your very long to-do list.

Keep Certain Items Easily Accessible

There are certain items that you're going to want to keep easily accessible during your move, especially over the holidays. This might include things like medications, toiletries, holiday decorations, clothing, and, of course, presents!

You'll want to make sure that these items are packed in an easily-accessible spot so that you can grab them as you need them. A good way to do this is by packing them in a clear plastic bin — that way, you can see exactly what's inside without having to dig through a bunch of boxes.

Make a List

And check it twice! This one might seem obvious, but it's important to make a list of everything that needs to be done in order to move successfully during the holiday season.

This list should include things like packing, cleaning, changing your address, and scheduling time off from work (if you're taking any time off for the holidays). Checking items off of your list as you go will help to keep you organized and on track — plus, it's always satisfying to see how much progress you've made.

It's also a good idea to keep a calendar up to date with all your holiday plans — in the bustle of the season, it can be easy to forget.
