If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of a last minute move, the very first thing you should do is take ten minutes to plan out everything you need to undertake over the next few days. You could make a checklist of the little things you could easily forget, like buying light bulbs so you don’t spend your first night in darkness, taking meter readings and redirecting post. Alongside this, it’ll help you to put down a timeline of when each step of your move is taking place. Having these lists to hand will not only help you feel calmer and more in control of your moving day, it’ll make sure you have the best possible experience once you’re moved into your new place too.

As well as this, getting through your freezer is a great way to save the pennies before your moving day, leaving you with more budget to spend on your new home, and reducing food waste in the process.
