The first thing first, you need to hire Moving Buddies Tucson AZ. They will make your move much easier. Although we cannot promise that you will feel that you have just returned from the spa after following these tips for making moving day fun, we really think that you at least feel that you have received a very nice manicure. Baby steps!

Children's hands

Here are all our best insider tips for, dare we say, making moving day fun!

Create a playlist for packing and unpacking

This advice may seem a little silly, but we swear it works! Create two playlists that you can use when moving: a packing playlist and an unpacking playlist. For your packing playlist, you can focus on vigorous dance music to keep motivated. And to unpacking playlist, you can choose songs that are a little more relaxing, but still, have some effect. Or one of you can play your favorite songs on a piano before your piano movers Tucson AZ come to pack it.

Something psychological happens in your brain when you go through this process with playlists that you have chosen for these two tasks. Somehow, you will be able to really turn on the gear faster than usual.

Focus on easy peasy

When you are working on packing things, look for any way to make your life easier. Here are some of our favorite tips:

If you have furniture, such as a chest of drawers filled with clothes, leave the clothes there, rather than take out everything and pack them separately. Your long-distance movers can wrap up your dresser and make sure that none of the drawers move. When you get to your new place, you will know exactly where everything is.

For clothes that are already on hangers in your closet, leave them on hangers. Instead of giving these things to your loaders, you can move objects yourself and simply transfer them directly to your new closet. Make sure that when you pack your things, you leave them in the same order in which they were. This will minimize your work even more.

If your cutlery, kitchen tools, and other items are already in the drawer organizers, leave them in the organizers and pack them in this way. When you get to your new home, you can take them straight out of the box and just put them right in the box. If you do not use the organizers and would like, now is the time to do it. Buy a few organizers that you know will work in your new room and pack your kitchen utensils in them before putting them in the box.

Small boxes – your friend

Small moving boxes for making moving day fun

It can contribute to making moving day fun: go with small boxes.

Sometimes you need big boxes, but you will find that during your move you need very few of them. And although you will have more boxes, you will still be much happier. That can also be a great way to keep kids busy on moving day. You can also pack and unpack small boxes much faster, as well as easily move them during the unpacking process. Unpacking the small boxes looks like you are constantly going through quick small wins, and it really supports you.

Use the app for making moving day fun

If the organization is not necessarily your favorite thing, download a moving application, such as Moving Van. This application will help you keep track of exactly what is in each box, allowing you to take pictures as you fill the boxes. It also has a super convenient search function, so when you are at a new place and wonder, “where I packed my collection of coffee tables books,” you can search for items and find out exactly what box they were packed in.

Eat some junk food

For those who are lucky enough to have a group of friends who will help you on the day of the move, be sure to plan in advance a setting that will force them to immediately go into the BFF category. Our idea? Junk food bar! Stock up on all the snacks, which, as you know, you should not eat, but love in any case: chips, chocolate bars, chewing candies, cookies, etc. Put all this in your new space and call everyone to help themselves.

Create a super important box

This advice, in our opinion, is crucial. When packing a place, make sure that you have a box for all of your most important items. Think about: clothes for a few days, workout clothes, favorite shoes, toiletries, important documents, a checkbook, food for your pet, medicines, etc. Basically, everything you need as soon as you get to your new home. And those are things you need to pack last on moving day.

If you can’t fit all in one box or one piece of luggage, take two with you! Just make sure that you clearly mark these super important boxes so as not to lose them in moving.

Set reward for the bribe

Working on this special delicacy really helps keep your motivation and not lose your mojo during the unpacking process. You can also tell a few friends about the goal, and ask questions throughout the week if you were meeting deadlines through text and social networks. You can even have a friend who will join you at the spa reception if you finish unpacking things in time.

Girl dancing

Then you can also do a moving happy dance.

Our final conclusion for making moving day fun: do everything that works for you. Moving can be very stressful. So when you decide which tricks are best for you, make more of them and drop everything else.
