How to organize the move?

How to pack your whole life?
Do not wait to pack until the last day. The more day closer to S, will be under greater stress and have fewer nerves and attention. Pack the box, two each day, room by room, by following his plan. Throw away or donate unnecessary and immediately think of the new site in a new home for her things to streamline unpacking.

Be organized and in packaging. Pack the row, room by room, and before the arm boxes, markers, wide adhesive tape and newspaper.
The box never enough. A few weeks before the moving start collecting boxes and at each visit to a local store. Get boxes of various sizes, which are clean, firm and give it to close. Get them at least twice as much as you think you need and store them so they do not take up much space (open lower and the upper opening, and Flatten). Keep in mind that the smaller boxes easier to manipulate, especially if you are on their way to face obstacles such as narrow staircases and the like, a box of alcoholic drinks are great for packing glasses, vases and other staklovinja because they are made of hard cardboard with sections. Do not pack things in garbage bags. It is easy to be confused with the real trash and discarded.

If you want to reduce the initial confusion in its new home, check the box. Thick marker on each box write the content (be specific, write rather than plates and pans kitchen furniture), which includes a room, whether the content is brittle and which side should be facing.
You can mark the boxes and labels in different colors to distinguish boxes with things such as the kitchen. clothing, cosmetics and so on. Before entering the box to a new home, the doors of the rooms put a sticker in the appropriate colors to your helpers know immediately where to place that box.
If you're an organizational freak (or permanently lose your marker, and the handwriting is illegible and you messy, as is my case), print the labels with the help of computers and for every room in the house (kitchen, pantry, living room, dining room, bedroom, children room, bathroom). The next step is to paste in the box. Ideally, stick a label on all 4 of the box in the upper left corner, it does not need to roll over and look where that box belongs. At the door of each room paste a label with the name of the room, so that carriers know where to put all those boxes. Transfer boxes to their correct destination and the time you get half the battle.
How to pack
Start with a pack on time (early) using a method that suits you best:

ABC Method
Everything you pack does not have to be unpacked immediately upon arrival at a new home. If the box contains the essential items, mark it with the letter A, which marked its top priority. If its content is important but not essential for the first hour of tick box letter B. If the box contains the off-season clothes and shoes, holiday supplies and other things that will not be used for some time, mark the letter C. Boxes and unpack the ABC sequence. Start with areas that do not use often (basement, garage, etc..) Or off-season stuff (off-season clothes and shoes, holiday supplies, ski equipment ...), and finally pack the most important and what you use every day.

Pack the order of things, room by room and keep them in separate boxes (do not confuse things with things out of the bathroom from the kitchen, etc..) That are marked with colored stamps. Specify the same color for every room in the old and the new home, for example. yellow for kitchen, orange for dining room and the like. On a box of kitchen stuff put a yellow sticker, a sticker the same color and put on the kitchen door in his new home. This will reduce confusion, helping carriers to bring the box to the right destination and save time for unpacking.

Basic things without which you can imagine every day pack at the very end. This will be your "survival box". The basic pack her things all the family members (clothes, shoes, cosmetics and medicines), which will contain everything needed for the first 2-3 days after you log into your new home full of neraspakiranih box. Useful stuff that should hopefully find places in the last box: a flashlight, a couple of towels, bed sheets, toilet paper, a small pad of paper and pencil, a few toys for children, and nepokvarljiva dry foods, paper or plastic plates and cutlery. Keep on hand and a flashlight and a box of basic tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, nails, hooks ...
Colour is red, oblijepite with Sponge Bob stickers, check the boxes to be allocated from the rest and put it in the van last so that the new location is removed first.
Do not stop here. If you have small children, boxes with TV, DVD player and cartoons Pack the van among the last things to entertain them as soon as you are extracting files. Do you need a cleaner and vacuum cleaner? The box with basic tools to set up shelves and hang pictures? What you desperately need the back pack and pack the last first.

Good luck!

Decorate your living space

Many a desk covered with various papers and old newspapers, and closets full of clothes that a multi is not in fashion or just does not fit anyone. In a word, we are surrounded, even suppressed disorder.When all this confusion out of control, balance and creativity and inevitably come into question.

We remember only the great moments

Habit of collecting objects and memories inherited the belief that our identity is associated with objects that surround us. These so-called. positive cases, associated with great moments and events, make us happy and positive effect on the condition of the soul and body, because they stimulate positive energy, but the mere sight of them fills us with joy and pleasure. Conversely, items that remind us of some unfortunate events or dark periods of life are hateful to us without a doubt the best solution is to solve them as soon as possible.
By collecting things just a bunch of problems

Clutter accumulates due to various reasons, and all have their roots in psychology.
Filling homes with unnecessary furniture and plenty of decorative and other items is the result of fear of losing their own creativity
Convinced you that you may have a case could be used, although it has long should you? It is an obsession with collecting, which conceals a strong fear of the future and lack of faith in their own abilities.
Things are no longer used, even if it is stored and disposed of the same, hidden place, an obstacle to the subconscious: in this case, the new energy can not freely circulate in our lives.
Objects to be repaired and operations to create a complete mess and show a tendency to avoid problems.
Disorderly and messy living and working space after a while the bad will also affect our attitudes toward life as such and the people with whom we are in, and indifference to the chronic disorder is really just kind of defense mechanism.
Cleaning the closet is a positive change in life

At the end of a dark period in his life, often feel the need to clean closets, clearing your desk or the introduction of order in the pantry. Exemption from clutter practical method of establishing relationships with self and mental cleansing: the separation of unnecessary items and bring order into living space had a positive influence on the state of mind, allowing us to be thus rid of old habits and open space of the new energy and positive events. Dom is an extension of ourselves and the place where each of us is relaxing and resting. It is for this reason must be comfortable and functional, but also bright and airy. Fantasy and creativity are inevitable in everyday life and, therefore, that the brain can function properly and completely, we need him, silence, space, emptiness, and red. Turn around, look at your desk and go in detail the release of unnecessary ballast.
Clutter is a kind of alibi, justification for the delay and failure to solve the problem

Disorder in the home, the mess in my head

Chronic disorder in the house, basement, or leave the office and work desk can be the enemy of mental balance and well-being. Clutter causes increased fatigue, a sense of immobility and inability to solve problems related to the stored memories. Clutter reminds us of the past, perhaps even violent, and prevents for dealing with new situations and new habits of life. Physical and virtual space in our brains are too crowded with unnecessary memories and prevent the acceptance of innovations. Clutter is a kind of alibi, justification for the delay and failure to solve the problem without feeling guilty. One of the causes of family discord. In the longer term causes of depression and pessimism. Chronic physical disorder costing us, and mental energy, and we need more time to find a thing.
