It’s March and whether you’re a basketball fan or not, you’re probably swept up in the madness of the tournament. Filling out brackets, rooting for underdogs, and cheering your top picks onto victory are all a part of the craziness of the tourney (or you just love sandwiches). After thinking about all of the “madness” that comes with the NCAA it got us thinking…moving & March madness have a lot more in common than you’d think.
Here are 7 March Madness inspired moving tips to make your upcoming move a BIG WIN!
1. Start with a Gameplan
When it comes to moving, “going with the flow” is not the best idea. Instead you need to have a plan in place. Pick a moving date, rent a truck, hire some move help, and get ready for the big day. Check out our moving checklist for a play-by-play.
2. Prepare Ahead of Time
Do everything you can do now to prep for gameday. That means donating unwanted goods, packing up boxes, and patching up nail holes in your old place. Instead of scrambling the night before the big move, you’ll be well rested and ready to get your head in the game.
3. Make sure you Hustle
No matter how much you prepare, moving day is going to be chaotic. Stay hydrated, stay on top of your moving team, and keep your fanny pack full of moving essentials on you throughout the entire process.
4. Teamwork is Key
As they say, there’s no “I” in “TEAM.” And when it comes to moving, you’re going to need a great group to win. Instead of doing it all yourself, contact HireAHelper and work together to move out of your old place, and into your new home.
5. Have a Good Support System
Emotions can run high when you’re in the middle of a move, so make sure you lean on your friends and family for support. They can help you deal with the stress and survive your move with a smile. Because let’s face it, there are plenty of emotions that accompany moving.
6. Celebrate the LITTLE things
Packed that mirror like a pro…and it survived moving day? Time to celebrate! To keep the moving process from overwhelming you, it’s best to celebrate all of the mini victories along the way.
7. Celebrate the BIG things
All of those little victories add up to 1 big one…the feeling of being moved into your new home! Instead of worrying about that looming to-do list (gotta pick a paint color, gotta meet the neighbors, gotta forward my mail) take some time to soak in your success and welcome yourself home. Make some cardboard moving box art projects!
So even if you don’t have a perfect bracket, you can still make your upcoming move a big win!
