Moving is one of those things that has a tendency to sneak up on you if you are not paying attention. When you first learn that you are going to be moving in, for example, six months, you get motivated to start your packing early. Maybe you spend a week calming packing a few things here and there, putting boxes away in the closet and maybe throwing away some loose items that you want to get rid of. The thing is, that initial motivation tends to go away after a week or so, meaning that while you may know that you have to be out of your home in five and a half months, it seems like so far in the future that you just put off the work that you should be doing. Suddenly it’s four months and no more packing has been done, then three months, then two months. Finally, with a few weeks to go you are suddenly faced with a mountain of packing that needs to be done ASAP. This is one of the main reasons why you start packing early, and that you stick to a schedule that allows you to properly take care of things.
There is no need to get all your packing done four months before you move. You can take the long-term approach by going from room to room and packing what is not going to be needed first. With that said, setting a schedule allows you to keep up with the packing, meaning that you can be done with 99% of the packing a week before you move, only leaving the stuff that you need until the morning of your move.
