I’m Lazy and I Know It: Moving Tips for the Lazy

So, you have decided to move out. It could be a different city, or a new country. Whatever it is, moving indeed is painful, especially for the lazy person. You have to plan, organise, and put in all the hard work that is needed to have a peaceful move. Overwhelming, isn’t it? Well, I have some tips that could help you get everything done with the least of efforts. Frankly, a successful relocation is all about doing things right without putting in a lot of time and energy and I’ll teach you how!

Plan in advance: You know you are too lazy to do things, so, why not do little things every day? This way, you won’t have a million things to do at the last minute. For instance, you can prepare a handy checklist and start a month in advance. Trust me, your packing will be much more convenient and controllable.  

Pack and don’t dump: No one likes to pack. It is time-consuming and it is boring, but the truth remains if you are to move you’ve got to pack. And when I say pack, I mean literally pack and not just dump things for the sake of. It may be easier and quicker, but it could lead to damage of goods. So, take out the time and use appropriate boxes and bubble wrap to keep your goods safe and secure.

Call for a moving company:  You may think you are wasting money if you call for movers and packers, but if you can get affordable moving services, what is the harm? They would do all the loading and unloading in one trip that would probably take you ten or maybe more. And all this, without you having to raise a finger; or maybe you’ll have to raise a finger to say where to place the stuff. Besides, you won’t have to pay for the extra supplies you may need and save up on time and energy by visiting the stores and hunting for stuff.

Make use of the things you have: You don’t have to necessarily have a new sofa, bed, or cutlery just because you have moved to a new place. You can make use of the old items. Now unless they have become outdated and old I don’t really see a need to spend on new things.
Additionally, ensure that you have a list of all emergency numbers, have all connections started like phone, internet, etc. Set up domestic supplies as well as electronic appliances.
