5 Key Benefits of Organizing Before Your Local Residential Move

An organized home makes life much easier, but many people don’t realize how unorganized they are until they face a move—taking the time to sort through and organize your belongings before a local household move is essential. It’s one of the most vital things you can do when getting ready for your move. Here is a look at why.

1. Organizing helps you eliminate unnecessary stuff.

When you work to organize your home, you get the opportunity to examine all of your belongings. Organizing often involves physically touching and holding everything you are trying to put into place. You may find many things that truly have no place or do not fit in with your belongings or your current and future lifestyle. Before moving, eliminating the unnecessary can lighten the load.

2. Organizing your belongings simplifies packing.

Simplify the packing process before you move by organizing — it’s an essential first step. You won’t have to move from room to room to fill a box or track down items you should pack together. For example, you won’t find things in your bedroom closet that should be out in the garage. When you have everything in its place and properly sorted, you can pack up your belongings much faster.

3. An organized home is easier to manage on moving day.

Not only will packing be a lot easier when you have your belongings organized, but your moving day will be easier too. Take the time to pack your belongings by room. Don’t put items from one room into a box with things from another room. Label all of your boxes. You should include the contents of the box and the room in which the movers should place the box in your new home. 

4. Organization is good for your mental health during a stressful situation.

Of all the significant life changes, moving can be one of the most stressful. Alleviate some of the stress that comes along with moving by getting organized. According to Psychology Today, your brain works better when you are in a well-ordered space. Excessive clutter or disarray can inhibit your ability to focus or concentrate on what you need to do.

5. Good organization strategies simplify setting up your new place.

When you get to your new home and start unpacking, all the organizing you did before your move will really pay off. You will know what each box contains, where it should go, and you will spend less time shuffling around boxes to empty them. With the clutter already eliminated, you will be able to unpack and put your things away quickly.
