How To Stay Motivated for Moving to a New Apartment
  • Opening Intro -

    After finishing your first year of college and moving out of the dorms, the idea of moving into a new apartment is a fun prospect.

    It’s a whole new experience of freedom and independence, not to mention having privacy and a place of decompression.


Whether you’re moving on your own or with friends, packing and getting all your belongings over is a lot of work.

Getting started on transitioning from one living space to another is daunting. But have no fear; here is how to stay motivated for moving to a new apartment so that you can celebrate your recent life accomplishment. You’ll thank yourself later down the road.

Create a Moving Plan

The first step in moving out is to create a thorough moving plan. Therefore, creating a packing checklist will help you stay organized and on top of any additional cleaning you may need to do. You can take on task after task, keeping track of what you need to prioritize.

Create a checklist from most to least important, and then categorize it by area and difficulty. By keeping your list straightforward, you can move in no time.

It can also provide extra time to relax in between different tasks, so take advantage of having a break then regroup when you feel refreshed.

Consider a Hiring Team

Considering how much stuff you need to pack and move, you must think about transportation. Whether you do it all yourself or have people assist you, you have to optimize your time from planning to moving day. You want to move smoothly and avoid any pauses along the way.

Asking a few friends or family members is cost-effective, and you can always thank them by buying a pizza and drinks. However, if you have a lot of big furniture that won’t fit in traditional cars, hiring a moving company or renting a moving truck is a better choice. Work with your budget and your availability to plan out properly.

Decorate Your Heart Out

A fun way to stay motivated for moving to a new apartment is by decorating it to your liking. By efficiently using the space in your home, you can decorate with ease. So, don’t be afraid to spice up your new home with a theme or decorations you favor. You’ll get a lot of compliments about your interests, and they work as great conversation pieces.

Try adding your favorite movies or sports memorabilia throughout your home to add personality, sticking to two or three furniture pieces per room, and avoiding cluttering your corners and walls. It’s a great way to keep your home décor simple and with easy flow.

Moving is an exciting time in your life. It’s the first step in becoming an independent adult and is beneficial for self-growth. So, have fun with the moving process and host a party when you’re all moved in.
