Hello My Friends!
I hope that you and your loved ones have been safe and healthy during the Coronavirus pandemic. Isn’t this so crazy? It’s been a long time since I’ve written here in my blog, but there is so much that has to be said when it comes to moving during corona 19 especially since I just finished relocating myself.
So, by now,it has been almost five months or so with us living under the constraints of the Coronavirus. Some of us are still practicing social distancing, some of us are observing self quarantine, masking up and wearing gloves to do the simple and mundane grocery shopping, walking the dog or any other basic activities. Maybe that’s it and others, well- not so much. But as crazy and scary as all of this sounds, life must go on as carefully as we can!.
So with that, I have recently completed a big relocation for myself and my family from state to state, and let me tell you, it was hard, it was totally brutal and beyond challenging. Surely it was one of the most difficult tasks that we faced as a family, for me as a professional organizer. Moving my family during a global pandemic was not a small feat by any measure, which if you are doing it, it may not be so easy either. We ended up doing a DIY move, and it was also a pain in the back! While I have many tips and strategies up my sleeve for moving client’s this pandemic and health crisis made it complex, confusing and even dreadful at times, something I never ever expected for myself and my family.
Well, at long last, we completed our move last week. It has been several days since we have been settling in and it has been such an amazing relief, now we are just unpacking and organizing little by little.
I plan on sharing what I have learned with you later and you will be shocked to read about some of the unexpected pitfalls I encountered moving during my Covid 19 mass move and relocation.
In the meantime, timing could not be better, just as I was completing my own personal move,
I was contacted by Lexi Klinkenberg over at Redfin about her awesome relocation guide that she wrote and asked me to share with you.
Her recommendations and ideas are spot on..
I just lived it and it looks like she has some great insight too.. The guide compliments many of the ideas that I will share with you later. Check out her guide below on my next article!.
