What does the thought of moving conjure up in your mind? Most people would say, that it was the most stressful time of their lives, while others would be more forgiving and call it a challenging process. No matter what negative emotions moving tends to evoke, most people still move every once in a while. In America alone, there seems to be a bittersweet reaction to the subject of moving. The average adult living in America will move every 6 years. Furthermore, most people will gladly move if it means an easier commute to work. Another larger majority will also move when they feel it is time to move on up to a better neighborhood. However, student moves are largely determined by the need to join or to leave a university or college, than a personal desire to relocate.

How to have a smooth student move
Moving as a student need not be a stressful time. If anything, it is an exciting time as you get ready for life as an adult. To be able to have a smooth move into campus, we have put together some moving tips to help you along.
- De-clutter: Get rid of items you no longer need. Go through your closet and purge everything that is just extra baggage. Remember, college dorms and your first apartment may not have all the extra space that your home does.
- Sell, Donate, Trash: Once you have created a pile of shoes, clothes and other items you no longer need, create three separate piles to sell, trash or donate. You will be surprised how much money you can raise from a garage sale.
- Get help: Ask your friends and family to help as much as they can. You have got to remember that moving is a process that you cannot achieve by yourself. Additionally, you can begin shopping around for an affordable moving company.
