A good place to start is by going through possessions way ahead of the move date. Its good to take the time to sort through things you no longer use and that way you can dispose of them in the right way. Recycle as much as you can to reduce waste. Place them in different piles, for example one pile to be donated and another pile for maybe a yard sale. Its much better to get rid of things before the move and that way you have a lot less to move on the day.
There are many objects we have in our homes that, when placed in the garbage, are very bad for the environment. Chemicals, electronic equipment, batteries, paint cans, and light bulbs and are just some examples of things that should not be thrown in the trash. These items are also best to be gone through well ahead of moving day so that you have the time to get rid of them in the safest way. If you need information on where to take these kinds of items, contact your local environmental agency who will be able to help you.
Yes, moving to a new house is one of the most stressful things we do, but by simplifying way ahead of time, it will help to feel much more organized on the day.
