Navigating the Moving Maze

We all know moving isn’t always a walk in the park - maybe you didn’t even choose to move voluntarily. From bidding farewell to your old digs to figuring out how to fit your entire life into cardboard boxes, there's a lot to wrap your head around. We're here to help you tackle those challenges and to focus on the exciting possibilities your new home brings

Expert Strategies for Stress-Free Moving

  1. Visualize Your Dream Space: Before you jump in to decluttering, let's take a moment to envision your new home sweet home. Moving is about more than just changing addresses—it's an opportunity to create the space you've always dreamed of. Close your eyes and picture it: the cozy living room where you'll unwind after a long day, the bright and airy kitchen where you'll whip up delicious meals, the tranquil bedroom where you'll drift off to sleep each night. By visualizing your dream space, decluttering becomes less about letting go of stuff and more about curating the life you desire.

  1. Timing is Everything: To declutter before the move or after? That is the question! You'll likely need to do both. Downsizing your possession prior to your moving dates saves on moving costs and labor, and is especially important if you’re downsizing or moving long distance. Once you’re in your new space you’ll be able to take stock of what fits comfortably and how much storage the closets really have. Be ready to let go of additional items that don’t suit your new space and lifestyle

  2. Upgrade Your Listing: If you're selling your home, it's time to work some staging magic! We're talking decluttering, depersonalizing, and arranging furniture - all so that potential buyers can tour the home and see themselves in the space. Tidy, decluttered homes have more attractive listing photos and can have improved sales success.  

  3. Start as Early as You Can: Want to know the secret to a stress-free move? It's simple—start now! By giving yourself plenty of time to declutter, pack, and prep, you'll avoid last-minute rushing and actually enjoy the moving process. Trust us, your future self will thank you for it.

How Home Organizers Support Your Move

As we transition into the packing phase, we'll bring our expertise to the table to ensure your belongings are packed efficiently and securely. We'll coordinate with other professionals, like movers and real estate agents, making sure everything runs smoothly leading up to and on moving day. Then, as you settle into your new home, we'll be there to unpack and set up your space with efficiency and function.  

My favourite moving secret…one of the best times to hire an organizer is to unpack your new home. You’ll be unpacked and organized all at once -  saving you a ton of time and effort!

Moving may not always be a walk in the park, but with a plan, some proactive action and the right support, it can be a whole lot easier—and maybe even a little fun!

“I had a huge job of clearing out my 2500 Sq ft home to stage for listing and then to move into our holiday trailer. I'll be recommending Sort & Simple to anyone who even mentions in passing they need an organizer. Thank you for all you've done to help us start our next chapter!” - Ashley
