Packing for a move can be stressful enough as it is, but adding kids into the mix can make the task feel like a herculean effort. Busy moms often need a bit of help when it comes to getting everything, including their kids, taken care of and ready for the move. Here are a few great tips you can put to good use.
Organization Is Key
Even if you aren’t a busy mom, getting well-organized for your move is essential. While you can likely use an app or word processing program to make note of everything, you might be better off with a physical binder you can quickly and easily access. In it, keep up with all necessary paperwork, phone numbers, lists, schedules and anything else you might need for your move. Be sure you keep an inventory of everything you’re packing and the boxes in which you pack them.
Accept Help That’s Offered
You might receive offers for assistance. No matter how under control you think you have everything, it’s best that you accept any help that’s offered, or at least tell the person you’ll get back to her or him with a definite answer when you’ve had a chance to see what kind of assistance you need. At the very least, you’ll have someone who might be able to take the kids off your hands for a few hours.
Get the Kids Involved
You might as well get your kids involved with the move and put their boundless energy to good use. If you like, you can have them pack up their room, designating specific boxes for specific items. Just make sure you take a peek inside the boxes before sealing them up to ensure everything that’s inside should be there.
