Step 2:  Organize

First, make sure you have a target date for your move.  Know where you are moving to and who is involved.  If you are buying or renting you normally will need a professional to help you navigate the process.  Realtors are great for this and typically have access to all types of business professionals that can help you move.  Now, I'm not saying that Realtors know everything, but 9 times out of 10 times, they know exactly where to direct you to find the answers.   Here are a few things you can do to make your life easier prior to that big move:

  • Make a schedule:  Start with your move date and work backwards.  Allow enough time to complete each task.  This cuts down on frustration, and gives you a sense of accomplishment for each task completed.
  • Start preparing the family ahead of time:  Have frequent discussions with your children about the move and provide a timeline.  
  • Visit the new area:  Take your children and pets to parks , trails and facilities located near your new home.  
  • Include your children in the process:  Give them age appropriate tasks to help with the move.  Allow them the opportunity to let go of items they no longer use.  They will feel more comfortable and in control of their circumstances.
  •  Calm the Kids:  This includes the fuzzy ones too.  Consider having a friend, sitter or family member take the kids and pets out to the park or some other relaxing activity on the day of the move.  Less stress for everyone, and you don't have to worry about someone getting hurt or lost.  Make sure there are plenty of snacks and lots of water.

Tomorrow, we talk about packing, and I know you can't wait!!!

Well that's it for today, did I mention 'drink lots of WATER', after all this is Arizona.
