Moving Is The Worst

Going from place to place, house to house isn't always an easy transition. There are so many factors that go into moving that it can almost be too overwhelming. Being organized with so much stuff can easily be frustrating and too much to handle. If you're like me and getting everything organized is a top priority, you won't be able to relax until everything has found its perfect place. Sometimes you may even think that it would have been better to just suck it up and stay put. While I love organizing everything and being settled in, I just wish that I could snap my fingers and it would be done in an instant. I know that I am not the only one who feels this way. Moving isn't fun for anyone unless you're just into that, I guess.

1. There is stuff everywhere, and you want to give up before it's even started


Packing up everything unveils the hiding places of the stuff you just didn't know what to do with. You end up looking at the mess and crying. Maybe you'll decide to throw it all away and get new stuff. Whatever it may be, you're just not thriving off of the mess in your house, and you're ready to be done.

2. Items start getting thrown into boxes in the most unorganized way


After everything is taken out of its original space, it's time to box it. It's so tiring trying to piece everything together to make sure it's organized. Before you even realize it, all your boxes are labeled "misc."

3. It is hot


We all know how miserable the heat is in the summer. It gets stuffy and sticky outside, and all you want to do is take a dip in the pool and drink a cold drink. Carrying boxes on boxes up and downstairs in this heat, on the other hand, is not what any of us find fabulous.

4. It's all heavy


No one wants to make one trip just for one little box. Making every trip to the car count is an essential part of moving. So, there are so many ways this can go wrong. You are loaded down, things are getting heavy, and items are falling. Not cool.

5. Finding a spot for everything in your new place seems impossible


By the time you've faced the heat and carried up all the heavy objects, unpacking it all seems nearly impossible. It's a lot, and there is a lot of space that you just have no idea what to do with.

All in all, packing is not something most people enjoy. But, once it's all unloaded and figured out, it feels good to be in a new space and call it home.
