Take inventory of your belongings

It’s important to take a step back and look at what inventory you have in your current home to gain perspective on what is actually important enough to take with you. Once you take inventory you can start to imagine what will actually fit in your new home.

Measure your furniture

How are you supposed to know what furniture you can bring to your new home if you don’t measure your furniture and new home? Measure all of the items you’re planning on taking to make sure they will even fit in your new space.

Focus on one room at a time

Imagining tackling your entire house all at once can seem like a daunting task, but there are ways to make it feel less daunting. Focusing on one room at a time can help make the entire process more manageable.
