These moving hacks will reduce the hassle of taking all your things to a new home.

I was recently interviewed, along with my esteemed colleague Donna Smallin Kuper, for an article on moving hacks to reduce the stress of moving.  Half the suggestions were mine and I am so thrilled to have been referred by Donna for the joint interview.

Packing up an entire house is on most people’s invisible list of “Least Fun Activities. Ever.” But it doesn’t have to be that way. A few clever hacks can help you fast forward the whole moving thing – and ditch some of the stress.
To help demystify the process, we combed the Internet and asked two professional organizers – Maria White, founder of the website “Enuff with the Stuff,” and Donna Smallin Kuper, author of “How to Declutter and Make Money Now” – to give up their secrets.
1.  Do a Pre-Pack Photo Shoot
Make unpacking a snap by taking some pre-packing photos so you’ll know exactly where everything goes when it’s time to empty those cardboard moving boxes. Take pictures of bookshelves, display cases, and even all that wiring behind your TV and computer. With the photos in hand, you’ll remember just how you had it set up before so you can recreate it in record time.
