We all know packing up and moving is stressful. We all know the holiday season is stressful. Now combining the two? That’s a recipe for a stress overload disaster. However, sometimes a holiday move might not be avoided. So, let’s go over some moving tips for a stress-free move and a stress-free holiday.

Tips for an Easier Holiday Move

Move the day after the celebrations

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, you have to take time for family. That’s the whole point of holidays so don’t try to avoid it! Take advantage of your family being around and wait until the day after a celebration to move, once things start to wind down. It’s also good to do it around this time because all your family will still be around, so you can get help from them.

Prioritize packing

Get everything ready to pack ahead of time. You can be in the midst of packing up while the holiday and celebrating is still going on. By the time moving day rolls around, the only thing you should have out are your holiday decorations. The idea is to pack the things you know you won’t be using first, so that way, they’re out of sight and out of mind while the festivities are going on, but you can rest assured that they are taken care of.

Stay in the holiday spirit

Don’t let your holiday move put a damper on the joy of celebration. Instead, be happy, be present, and have fun. The best way to do that is to pack ahead of time, like we already talked about. But, if it becomes too much, take a break. Seriously! It’s the holidays! Relax and hang out with your family!
