You've sold your home and found the new home of your dreams....now it's time to start the dreaded job of packing. Shopping for that new home is generally an exciting experience, but there is nothing fun about packing...

Maple Leaf Storage shared this story with us and they have some great suggestions on how to bring some "Zen" into your move.

I moved my family across the country almost 7 years ago and even before we listed our home in Brampton Ontario, I started packing. I often tell clients to pack away as much as they can when they ask for suggetions on how to get their home ready to sell. You know you are moving why not get things started, it makes things a lot smoother once your home sells and your moving date becomes a reality.

For my family with such a big move from Ontario to BC, I wanted to purge as much as I could. Much like the article suggests if you haven't used it or even looked at it in the last year...do you really need it? So that's what we did. I had my house packed and organized by room and with such a big move I documented everything. It really did make the move go smoothly and I knew exactly where everything was to go and where to find everything we needed.
