If you want to have a smooth and effortless house moving you need to invest some time in planning all the details properly. Many things can go wrong you want to make sure that you can handle anything fate throws at you. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I need to bring all my belongings with me to the new place?
  • Will I ever use item “X” or “Z”?

If you answered with no, congratulations you just completed your first challenge and now know that is time to declutter your home. Make a pile of everything you don't want, or it is not essential to your new home. You can either donate everything or make some unexpected gifts to family and friends.
Now it is time for the next set of questions:

  • How are you going to move?
  • Can you do everything all by yourself or you need help?
  • Who can you call for help?

These questions need to be carefully thought about. You may need to call some professional help or bribe your friends with a beer in order to help you pack all your belongings.

  • What is going to happen to your old place?
  • Do you need to do an end of tenancy cleaning?
