How to Succeed in Gradual Moving
When we move, we face financial and emotional stress in every aspect of it. When moving because of job reassignment, we may be forced to leave our children while the house is up for sale. In this crucial time, it is important to be prepared and organized. Below are tips to help make this temporary separation and gradual move manageable for you and your family.
Develop a check list
Establish a check list which indicates the tasks you and your spouse need to accomplish. Be sure to point out who will be responsible for each task. Checklist should include arrangement for home repairs, booking of moving companies, hiring of real estate agents and choosing of house in new location.
Before you leave your spouse, be sure you both have already discussed about the stuff that will be kept and discarded. Note an inventory of these items. Start with off-season clothing and the non-essential stuff of the partner moving first. Packing these items helps de-clutter home before selling it.
Discuss hiring requirements
To avoid misunderstandings, the couple must settle a budget for hiring movers and other companies assisting in the move. This also includes hiring a baby sitter. Talk with your partner what sorts of services you may need and what you can afford. Also discuss possibilities of doing some of tasks yourself to cut down moving expenses.
