Is anybody else planning to move in 2022? I have to admit, when I first moved out, I truly had no idea what I was doing, I was so determined to be independent but my first year ended up crashing and burning really quick (whoops)! Moving has been a roller coaster thus far, so I wanted to share some of my moving tips, tricks and more to hopefully make your 2021 the smoothest one yet! Let’s get started!


When you are moving, the last thing you want to be worried about is how much money you have. Create an emergency fund: Anything could happen! Don’t overspend on your move- things can get expensive! So, while preparing for your move I highly recommend using the app “Every Dollar”. This app helps a lot with budgeting. I downloaded it before I moved for the first time so I could focus on my move- not my money! I had emergency moving funds set aside and was able to keep my focus on my moving day, thanks to the app.


When you have finally realized that this is the year, you’ll want to be sure that you have all your ducks in a row, including finding a quality, professional and direct realtor who can point you in the right direction when it comes to selling and finding your new dream home. Ben Harris of Atlanta Real Estate is the one for you! Not only is he able to help you find a home that you’ll love, but if you’re looking for more luxurious high-rise condominiums, Ben is your guy. His professional home staging skills and real estate photography is key when figuring out how to get the best buys for your home as well as also the next step to helping you have a smooth transition of your own to your new location. Whether it’s a multi-million mansion in Buckhead or finding peace and tranquility in the 101 Midtown Condos, Ben knows where the best places to be are.

Do a lot of research to assess all your options and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Take your time — this is a big decision, and you want the best for you and your family. People looking for a home in Rain City are always diving into the market so they can find suitable Vancouver real estate agents who will guide them through the process. This level of help is invaluable for those looking to make the move.


Packing can be such a mess. Things can easily end up piled and your house ends up looking like something out of hoarders! Every time I plan my packing, Pinterest is my best friend for organization tips. When it comes to supplies? Don’t spend a penny on boxes, get on Facebook and ask your friends if they have boxes, 9/10 times you will have a friend who has boxes that you can get for free! Another great alternative to boxes is storage bins, they are reusable, and your recycling bin won’t be overflowing once you move in! Some other supplies that have been a lifesaver for my moves are: Taping guns, dolleys, moving blankets, and of course, bubble wrap! With Pinterest, the right supplies, and good timing, packing will be easier than you ever expected!


Let's be honest: nobody likes moving! The hassle, the work, the time-it is all just a big stressor. That’s why your timing is so important when moving. Have everything planned out the night before, write down what needs to be done, get a good night's sleep, and when you wake up, pump yourself up! That also means you need to be in full focus mode, have a good meal beforehand, no phones, keep water and snacks nearby, turn on your favorite “Spotify” playlist, and take down your whole plan like a boss! Like I said, nobody likes moving, but I believe you have the power to get it done in a fast, efficient way if your day is nicely planned and timed out.

With these few tips, I wish you all the smoothest, most successful move in 2021! Take your time, make a budget, and of course, hire the professionals. Moving can be a breeze with those few simple steps!
