1. Finding a new place to live.
In some cities this is an easier process than others. But for places like New York, its take-it-or-leave-it, with only a few days to find a respectable home before your own lease has expired. Bring on the stress, headaches, and split-second decision making.
3. The purging process.
Do you have room for that piece of furniture? Have you worn half of those clothes in the last year? Are you still in love with that huge, purple mirror? If the answer is no, it has to go.
Donate to Goodwill, sell some things on Craigslist, and try to part with as much as necessary before packing.
5. Hiring movers and recruiting friends.
If you’re going to spend some money and get movers, do the research and make sure its a reliable company that won’t rip you off or damage your goods.
If you’re going to get friends to help, make sure you repay them with food and drinks.
Even though the process makes for a long, tiring day, try to get some of the big things put away before the first night like clothes, toiletries, and kitchen supplies so you don’t have to go digging for essentials when you need them most.
Things like decorating and rearranging can wait until you’re more settled.
