Moving becomes less of a must do chore when you divide the tasks according to the number of days you have. The tasks can be broken down on a weekly basis, as to what you would be doing throughout the moving process, per week. Make moving a manageable process and not a haphazard pain in the neck, by making a check list. Hand the list that you prepare on your refrigerator as a reference and pack your belongings with ease.
