“Hindsight is 20/20” — it’s a cliche adage, but it’s pretty accurate when it comes to moving! It seems that you always wish you organized differently, planned more, or simply had an easier way to navigate the moving process. Luckily, we’ve got you covered! These hacks are the most comprehensive guide to staying ahead of moving woes.
Before You Move
- If possible, clean the bathroom and kitchen in your new place before you move in.
- Designate a donate pile for all clothing and items that you don’t want to take with you.
- For the 2-3 weeks leading up to your move, plan your meals around whatever frozen food, perishable items, or half open containers that you have around the kitchen. You can also donate your nonperishable items!

Make your move easier with our free moving tools.
- Update your address for all your accounts, utilities, and subscriptions several weeks before moving day.
- Instead of throwing away old batteries and electronics, find an electronics recycling center in your area.
- Measure EVERYTHING. If a piece of furniture can’t fit in your new home, get rid of it!
- Schedule your move for the middle of the month or the middle of the week to cut costs. It’s cheaper to move then! If you’re planning a DIY move, you’ll want to look into the cost of renting a moving truck.
How to Get Your Deposit Back
- If you’re renting, take photos of your old place as you move out and photos of your new place as you move in.
- Remove any dents in the carpet that furniture left behind with ice cubes. Simply place the ice cubes on the dents, let them melt, and use a spoon to lift the fibers.
Via Rent Fluff
- Use white Ivory soap, toothpaste to fill nail holes in your walls.
- Broken glass on the floor? Use a slice of bread to pick up the pieces that your broom missed!
- To make picture frames more stable and protect your walls from scuffing, cut off pencil erasers and glue them to the back of the frame before hanging it up.
- Wrap a rubber band around a hammer to prevent scuffing the wall when removing nails.
- To get stains out of the carpet, use a mixture of 1 part hydrogen peroxide and 2 parts water. Add some lemon essential oil to the mixture, shake lightly, spray the area, and let set for a minute. Scrub with a scrub brush, and voila — good as new!
- If you have scuff marks on hardwood floors, cut a hole in a tennis ball, stick the ball on the end of a broom, and rub the scuff mark until it disappears.
