Whether you are relocating to Eldon, MO or moving to a new home across town, moving can be a stressful time. With a number of homes for sale near Eldon, MO, there are plenty of opportunities for you to move in the near future. Take a look below to learn some helpful tips to get you through the stress of moving!

1. Keep Items Organized

When packing boxes, keep items that belong in the same room together. This can make unpacking in your new home much easier. It can also be helpful to label your boxes as to which room they belong in. This can help avoid a huge pile of boxes in your main living space, once you get everything moved in.

2. Start Early

Get a head start on packing as soon as your move is approaching. It can be helpful to pack items you don't use very often first. Consider packing up your out of season clothing and other things you won't need immediately. On moving day get an early start, as well. This can help ensure you have enough time to move your items to your new home and give you a little time to start unpacking!

3. Utilize Luggage & Totes

You likely have storage containers of some sort in your home. Utilize these containers to move stuff -  they will have to be moved either way! Pack your clothing away in spare luggage for easy transport. Use your empty storage totes, tubs, and other bags to help move too!

4. Keep Fragile Items Safe

When packing, ensure your breakable items are packed securely. Consider wrapping a towel or newspaper around your fragile items. This can help protect your items from breaking in transit.

5. Use Smaller Boxes

The heavier the item, the smaller the box that should be used. This can help make your boxes easier to move for you and your helpers. With heavy objects, like books - the smaller the better!

6. Keep Important Items Separate

Paperwork for your home purchase, keys, and a few cleaning supplies should be kept separate. This gives you one location in which all of your important items can be easily found. Keep this important box close at all times, that way you know of its whereabouts, should you need something from it.

7. Line Out Help Ahead of Time

It's important to get help moving ahead of time. Whether you are relying on family and friends or will use a moving company, it's important to get a date locked down well in advance. This can help ensure you have help during this busy moving season!

8. Check the Weather

Keep an eye on the weather as moving day approaches. If the forecast is not in your favor, you can make adjustments accordingly. Whether you choose to push moving back or move it up, you can adjust based on the weather forecast. You can even better prepare your items for the forecast if you want to keep moving at the same time!

You can also take advantage of garage sale season and rid your home of unneeded items before you pack them up to move!
