Melia Robinson, an author with Business Insider presumably has a shipping service lined up for her life-transforming trip from New York City to San Francisco. Her recent article about the move makes clear that its transformative nature has to do not only with what will be waiting for her when she unpacks her shipping boxes in San Francisco. It also has to do with what she’s leaving behind in New York.
Robinson reports that before leaving she systematically checked 32 items off a list of things she wanted to experience in the place from which she’s departing. This is a great idea for anyone who is packing supplies and preparing relocations services for a major change of life. It’s a way to get the most out of moving by getting some real closure, whether you’re departing a big city like Los Angeles or a small Midwestern town.
It’s also worth noting that if you want to follow Robinson’s lead with your own moving day bucket list, the experience may be easier, richer, and more rewarding if you can make your last days in your old home less encumbered. Specifically, you can accomplish that by employing a shipping service that will hold your moving boxes to be delivered on a certain date, or that will deliver them straight into storage.
This option leaves you free of the burden and stress of moving everything on your own, so that you can enjoy extra freedom in the last days before an easy, reflective journey to your new home.
