The one thing about spring is how it makes us feel new again. When you think about it, we are like flowers in that we open to the light and the sun beating down on our faces. That feeling of renewal can be applied when we move. There are ways to make a spring move less stressful. Take the time to smell the flowers and use these moving tips to embrace the good things about moving in spring.

Start with the basement and the rooms you use the least then end with the kitchen and main bathroom. Take your time. Breathe.

One of the best things about moving in spring is that it’s also the season when people start trolling garage and yard sales for worldly goods. Take advantage of the season by holding your own sale of household goods that you won’t need at your new location.
Besides the weather, other things to keep in mind when moving in spring include:
