4 Tips To Make Moving Easier - For The Busy Mom

Moving happens. And sometimes it can happen without much warning. On top of the parenting and the life thing, how in the world do you plan to sell, pack up, and plan for your new adventure?

We are currently in limbo ourselves. And let me tell you how GREAT that limbo is when you have anxiety. With the possibility of a move due to the hubs' job, my head is already spinning with the what ifs and the how-in-the-heck-would-I-get-it-all-done? I do not want to get ahead of myself, but we do need to be prepared if the move happens. Since I am a list-maker, I've already come up with 4 tips I am going to follow if God has moving plans for my little fam.


REACH OUT TO YOUR FRIENDS

The day the news broke about this potential move, I went straight to a dear friend who lives in our possible new city. Not only will we need a house, but we will need good schools, too. I don't want to make any hasty decisions, so reach out to those who just KNOW. For me, it's busy moms who know the importance of all the choices you need to make.

GET ORGANIZED

Get your planners. Make your lists. Check out movers. I have already found checklists for moving via Pinterest. Also, check to see if the company requiring the move will provide packers and movers. I have had many friends who move sit back and let great companies pack up their homes and organize the boxes. While my OCD could get the best of me, I would love help in moving around a toddler.


DO YOUR RESEARCH

While we wait for news of a possible move, I've researched ways to make any move with kids an easy one! Thankfully, I've come across UpNest! UpNest takes the pain and complication out of finding a trustworthy local agent because all of their partner agents have the best records of selling and buying homes for clients in your area. As an added bonus, UpNest’s top partner agents compete for your business resulting in an overall savings on their services. After filling out a couple of simple questions, you are well on your way to finding the best local real estate agent fit for your unique situation.

I love that selling AND buying is all at my finger tips through UpNest. In my original search, I have been sent proposals for top agents in our area. From start to finish, the whole process took 10 minutes. And busy moving mamas across the land say YES, PLEASE!



TAKE A BREATH

From the moment we learned this move could happen, my busy brain began to fill with all I'd have to do. I don't do change well; I'm not sure I want to leave the life we've made here. My anxiety is at top notch speed, and with regular activities already keeping me spinning, I'm a mess. The best avenues for me are to take a minute - then assess the moment. 1. We do not know for use this move will happen. 2. If it does, we will take it one minute at a time. Just like life, really.

Have any of you moved lately? If so, I am all ears for helpful advice. For now, I will sit back and do my thing with UpNest knowing that I have great support and guidance for our future.

  7. We move every few years due to being military. Research, planning, and organizing are what keep me sane. While I can't control everything, it helps to be able to feel like I'm in control of at least that portion of the move. We're getting ready for what will probably be our final move which is exciting and scary all at the same time.
