Let’s play a quick game of “Would You Rather?” Would you rather stick your hand in a bucket of beetles for 30 seconds, or spend a weekend packing and moving? There’s no contest. I think we can all agree that moving is among the most dreaded tasks and life experiences. Not only is it extremely physically demanding, but it’s also emotionally exhausting. Going through years (or possibly a lifetime) of belongings and then vacating the place you once called home, can take a toll on your emotions. Our talented team of Professional Organizers at Can the Clutter has experience in helping you plan and execute organized moving. We can help make the moving out process quicker and less stressful by guiding you through the sort, discard and pack progression. Our method of organized moving is essential to helping you get settled quickly and peacefully in your new home.
Our Organized Moving Process
Here’s a look at our process, so you’ll know what to expect and how to prepare for organized moving.
- Consult with us. Tell us a little bit about your situation and your stuff. A quick conversation can give us a good idea for a timeline, as well as the number of organizers you’ll need. We’ll also let you know if there’s anything you can do before we get there, like have moving boxes, tape and a sharpie ready! Contact us today to set up an appointment.
- Meet with us – Pack it up. In our first visit, we’ll get right to work helping you sort, make decisions about items, discard if appropriate and finally pack (non-fragile, non-valuable items) in properly labeled boxes. How stressful is it when you just spent the whole weekend moving, Monday morning comes, and you’re digging through boxes of kitchen utensils and picture frames to find your black heels?! Not only will you be late for work, but yes, people will notice if you wear one black and one brown shoe. Proper packing is the first step in establishing lasting organizational systems in your new home.
- Move into your new home! This is where your movers and muscles take over. Get those neatly packed and labeled boxes moved to their new location. Smile in your new kitchen as you admire your neatly labeled “Kitchen” boxes, complete with all of your kitchen goods (not your missing black shoe).
- Meet with us – Unpack. Now for the fun part (at least we think so…we’re Professional Organizers, after all). We don’t just unpack, we help you set up organized systems that you can maintain in your new home. The hard part (sorting and discarding) is already done. We’ll get you on the right track to an organized lifestyle, before the last box is opened!
Whether you’re moving into your first home or downsizing a lifetime of belongings, we can help make that process positive, successful and even fun! So, get your hand out of that bucket of beetles, and contact us today. We can make home feel like home from day one!
