Top 4 Tips to Stay Organized During a Move

Staying organized can make the difference between a hair-pulling nervous breakdown and a calm, efficient move by the books. Here are four tips to help you stay centered and focused amidst the whirlwind of tasks required during the moving process.

1. Create and Use a Moving Binder/Notebook

You’ll be juggling a lot of balls throughout the moving process — best to keep everything organized in one place. Here is a sample list of things to include and keep track of:

-Lay out your master moving checklist.
-Plan your budget and refer back to it regularly.
-Keep an inventory of everything you’re moving, selling, donating, or throwing away, etc.
-Write down and compare quotes of different moving companies, rental trucks, storage units, insurance options, etc.
-Take notes on the pros and cons of different places during the home/apartment hunt.
-Gather important phone numbers: moving company, insurance company, truck driver, real estate agent, broker, new landlord, handymen, etc.
-Keep important papers: receipts, bill-of-lading, insurance contracts, paint swatches, etc.

2. Go Digital

Given the world we live in, what would an activity be without technology to help you out?! Of course, there is Moved, which we highly recommend. No worries if you are not a resident with our technology as a part of your building offerings you can still hire movers here. Along with that, Evernote and Wunderlist are two of the most popular planning apps in the world and work great as a digital to-do list. Both Sortly and Snap N Pack are designed for moving and allow you to easily print scannable QR codes to put on boxes, which sync with photos you’ve taken of the box’ contents. Never again will you wonder what’s in all those boxes you labeled “Misc”!

3. Label Boxes

Labeling boxes makes the experience better for everyone, you, your family/friends, and the movers. Not only will a solid labeling system help you remember what’s in the boxes for easy unpacking, but it will also help you keep track of everything you’ve packed/unpacked, and it will speed up the moving-in process by letting the movers know clearly where the boxes are going. They won’t need to ask you for directions every two minutes, leaving you free to wield your organizational magic elsewhere. There are many label systems out there — you can use computer labels, stickers, or a good old-fashioned large marker to get the job done. You can also use a color-coding system, e.g. yellow for the kitchen, blue for bathrooms, green for the living room, etc. Here are some more tips on how to pack for a stress-free move.

4. Pre-Plan Your Furniture Layout

This tip will require a measuring tape and a bit of upfront work — but trust me, it will pay off in the end! What you want to do is get a clear layout of your new home/apartment with accurate measurements. You can draw this out yourself or use a site like Urban Barn or Plan Your Room to speed up the process. Then, once you measure all your major pieces of furniture, you’re free to experiment with different floor plans!

While measuring everything will feel like a hassle, ultimately, you will save yourself lots of time and effort. Moving furniture around on paper or a computer is certainly easier than lugging it around your place. And as an added bonus, you’ll be sure that everything will fit! You don’t want to show up at your new place only to realize your couch won’t fit through the door.

Moved is a Win-Win For AvalonBay Residents and Leasing Teams

Creating a better way to live drives the purpose of AvalonBay Communities, Inc., an equity REIT that delivers a superior lifestyle for residents. With core values that include a commitment to integrity, a spirit of caring, and a focus on continuous improvement, AvalonBay believes that improving the move-in experience for new residents is one way to demonstrate those values. 

Rhett Mitter, Senior Director of Product Management for AvalonBay, describes why the company turned to Moved to simplify and automate the move-in process for its nationwide portfolio of 275 communities and 85,000 units.

“We began working with Moved in Q2 of 2020 after realizing that their platform was in alignment with what we intended to build ourselves,” Rhett explained. “They have been an absolute pleasure to work with as they are always responsive and forward-thinking about how to streamline the move-in process and improve the customer experience.”

Rhett went on to describe how Moved enhances the other efficiency measures that AvalonBay has already implemented for its onsite teams.

Our team members love the Moved platform. Now, they can view all of their move-ins in one place — something we never had before. In essence, Moved has removed the burden on our associates by automating the move-in process, making it intuitive and easy.

Rhett continued to explain, “For example, our associates no longer have to key in renters insurance policies and are empowered to maintain high compliance rates among our renters.”

Rhett estimated that 95% of the households they invite to use Moved signup and engage. Having the ability to complete all the tasks leading up to moving day, all in one place, saves time and increases enrollment in ancillary services.

Honestly, I feel like the Moved self-service platform is going to be table stakes in our industry for improving the customer journey through self-service options.

“It gives residents the ability to do things like sign up for Internet service or enroll in our renters’ insurance on their own time, and it frees up our associates’ time. It’s a win across the board,” he explained. 

Rhett added that AvalonBay is rolling out two new ancillary services to new residents thanks to the efficiency of the Moved platform and that the early numbers are showing promise for increased conversions.

The Top 5 Questions to Ask Your Leasing Agent When Shopping for a New Apartment

So you’re looking for your next apartment. Whether it’s your very first rental or you’ve been around the block a few times, this is an exciting – albeit stressful – time. Moving is rarely the smooth process we all wish it were (although it absolutely can be), and there’s a lot to consider when picking your new home. 

No matter how go-with-the-flow you claim to be, it’s important to ask as many questions as possible while shopping around. A lease is a legal contract, after all, and you want to make sure you understand everything you’re getting yourself into to avoid any surprises down the road. Once you’ve determined the location, size, and budget of your next place, it’s time to schedule a few tours! Just don’t forget to ask the leasing agent these 5 important questions before signing a lease:

(Photo by Alena Darmel)

#1: What’s included in my rent?

Rental vets will know that the listing price almost never totals the full monthly cost you’ll pay. Aside from the base rent, your property manager may require you to pay for some, if not all, of your utilities, such as electricity, gas, and water. They may even charge for trash collection, maintenance, parking, or amenity fees. What exactly you’re responsible for will vary by property and location, so it’s important to ask upfront. If it’s not included in the listing price, be ready to tack those extra costs on each month.

#2: Are there any property rules?

An often overlooked factor in choosing an apartment, property rules can turn out to be a huge turnoff for many renters. Are your furry friends welcome (and at what cost)? Is smoking permitted everywhere, in some places, or not at all? Are there quiet hours you’ll have to abide by? Will you be allowed to sublet if you get that annual travel itch? You don’t want to be sneaking around your apartment complex, breaking the rules, and risking eviction because you found out too late that the property rules don’t align with your lifestyle.

#3: How is the property managed?

Before you sign a lease, it’s beneficial to know who you’ll be dealing with when it comes to your new apartment. Will you be interacting with a landlord or property management company, and what’s their management style? Is the landlord simply collecting your rent and then – *poof* – nowhere in sight when you have a maintenance issue? Or are there property managers attending to your every need? Do they provide any tools like a resident onboarding system or an online resident portal for you to interact with the property seamlessly? Every renter will prefer something different, so make sure your next apartment’s management style enhances, not diminishes, your experience. 

#4: When and how do I pay rent?

There are a lot of different ways property managers can accept rent, so make sure you find out how they’ll require it. Will you have to obtain a money order every month and hand-deliver it, or do they make it easy with an automatic mobile payment system? It seems like a small detail, but it’ll make a big difference in your experience as a resident – especially if remembering to pay rent on time isn’t your strong suit. And if that’s the case (hey, no judgment here), be sure to ask how long the grace period is before they’ll start charging you late fees.

#5: What move-in procedures are in place?

We hate to break it to you, but the stress doesn’t end once the lease is signed – the actual move might be just as stressful. Be sure to ask the leasing agent what procedures you can expect on move-in today to ease the anxieties of any unknowns. Where will you pick up your keys? Will you need to reserve an elevator? Is there a dedicated unloading area? Will you have to meet your property manager the day of, or is there an online system that automates the onboarding process for you? Knowing these logistics beforehand will set you up for a seamless moving experience and set the tone for your new home.

As a prospective resident, property managers will be screening you, but don’t shrug off screening them and their property as well. At the end of the day, you’re picking out your next home – a place you’ll likely be spending a lot of time at. Make sure it suits you beyond the basics and that you’ll be happy there for the entirety of your lease. Happy hunting!

A Guide to Moving Last-Minute.

Moving homes in NYC is essentially inevitable. The high cost of living, constant construction, rent hikes, 1 bedroom apartments converted into 3 bedrooms, bad roommates, worse landlords, bedbug infestations, sweaty summers and frigid winters are just a handful of the wonders of living in NYC.

Despite these circumstances, most New Yorkers move within the metro area. And those that have had enough are leaving the city for the burbs and warmer weather. We compiled our moving data to gain some more insight into where New Yorkers are moving.

Manhattan dwellers stayed on the island

Of all moves originating within Manhattan, 68% moved to another location on the island. By comparison, just 9% moved to Brooklyn, 2.4% to Queens, and 19% to a location outside of the city completely.

We are seeing a slightly higher percentage of people moving from the Bronx into Manhattan than vice versa. And, generally, residents on Staten Island are staying put.

And, although most Manhattanites are staying in Manhattan, there were more moves from Manhattan to another borough than the other way around. As the population of NYC continues to grow and the cost of living continues to rise, this is a trend that likely isn’t going away.


Of all moves originating within Manhattan, 68% were moves to another location on the island.

Best Days to Move in the Winter

Winter is coming. And though that means shorter days and colder nights, it’s also the cheapest time of year to move! Of course, some days are still more expensive than others, but you can be pretty confident that the cost of your move will be significantly cheaper during the winter than all other seasons.

Have some flexibility in your move date? Take a look at the calendars below to find the best aka cheapest (green) days to move this winter:

With all the holidays and the cold weather, winter may not be the ideal time of the year to move. But as you can see, if you can swing it, there is a lot of money to be saved by moving during the winter months!

Packing Tips from Travel Bloggers

Packing can be exhausting. Physically and emotionally. Especially when you have to pack everything on your own! To help you out, we compiled a list of tips from travel bloggers who, although they’re not packing boxes often, do quiiiite a bit of packing themselves.

Use Colors to Stay Organized

Turner from Around the World in 80 Jobs uses colored packing cubes to organize his clothes. Knowing where everything is makes his unpacking process so much easier. Though you’ll likely be using cardboard boxes instead and packing much more than clothes, you can use his method to label your boxes by by room (bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, etc.). Knowing exactly where each box goes when you get to your new home can save you a ton of time in the long run. Trust us.


Pack Smart

Helene in Between, who dropped everything to travel the world with her husband Michael, uses a unique strategy to pack her backpack while she’s on the go (pictured alongside). By putting her densest and heaviest closest to her back and layering the lighter ones along the outside, she makes her pack easier to carry. You can do the same thing when filling your cardboard boxes! Put your heaviest things on the bottom and work your way out. Just make sure you double- or triple-layer the bottom of the box with tape!

Stay Safe From Spills

Nothing could put a damper on arriving at your new home quite like a cardboard box that’s been steeped in shampoo for a few hours. Kay from The Kay Days urges packers to keep their toiletries and other liquid items in ziplock bags when they travel. When you’re moving, this could be typical toiletries or other liquid items like cleaning supplies that might require larger protection (grocery or trash bags). This way, in the event that something spills during transport, you won’t have to deal with any type of catastrophic mess. Better safe than sorry.

Keep Rollin’

You’ve probably heard this one a number of times before, but that’s because it works! Laurel Robbins from Monkeys and Mountains says to roll your clothes to save space while you’re packing. This applies to clothes, but also larger items like blankets, towels, comforters, and curtains. The more space you save means the less boxes you’ll have, and the less money your move will cost. P.S. rolling will save your fabrics from wrinkles, too.

Plan, plan, and plan some more


Being prepared is the key to a successful move from start to finish. According to Christina Guan from Happy to Wander, tip number 1 is to “always start with a packing list… and always be reviewing your packing list.” A seemingly simple but extremely underrated piece of advice. Beyond just packing, having a list of everything you need to do for your move (hiring movers, reserving elevators, packing, booking storage) will ensure that you don’t forget any critical steps along the way. This might seem straightforward, but when the wheels start rolling, moving can get hectic.

Keep it Simple, …

Maybe our favorite tip comes from Laurence and Jessica of Finding The Universe. They say that once you’re done packing, you should leave at least half of what you were going to bring behind. This may be a bit drastic considering that you’re going to be moving every possession you own, but getting rid of your excess stuff before you move will save you big time! Packing will take you less time, you’ll have more space in your new home, and you’ll save money on the move! As is the case with most things when you move, simplicity is key. Check out How to Get Rid of Stuff When You Move to help you purge your unnecessary possessions.

Bonus Tip:

Though not a necessarily a travel blogger, Shaun Huberts is a musician and world traveller from Vancouver BC. He is also author to the book “How To Pack Like A Rockstar” (so we’d say he’s probably fairly knowledgeable on the subject). Shaun packs his clothes so they stack vertically in the opening of his suitcase (like demonstrated in the picture below). This way, he has easy access to any clothes he might need on the go and doesn’t make a mess digging through and unfolding everything. While this tip definitely applies to clothes, you can take it a step beyond that. Pack the things that you know you’re going to need right away at the top of boxes, or in a separate container (potentially suitcase or carry-on bag). Think silverware to eat with, your coffeepot for your morning coffee, your phone charger, towels, and sheets.

How to Register to Vote When You Move

Election day is right around the corner. If you have voted in the past, you are likely aware that your voter registration is identified through your home address. That can become a problem for residents who have moved in the last election cycle.

While the process of updating your voter registration can seem complicated, we put together a guide to make it as simple as possible for you:

How to Register

There are a few possible ways you can register to vote, depending on the state you are moving to:

  • By Mail: You can register by mail in all 50 states, and can do so by going to This will require you to fill out a form, print it, and mail to the party who handles your state’s voter registration (likely the Department of State).

  • Online: In 37 states, they make it even easier for you to register by doing it online. You can find out if your new state of residence permits online registration by selecting your state via

  • In person: If you’d rather handle your registration face-to-face, you can do so by visiting your state or local election office. You can also update your registration when applying for your new driver’s license or ID card at the DMV (this can sometimes be done online as well, depending on the state).

Registration Deadlines

There are deadlines to register to vote in each state. You can find all the necessary deadlines for your state here.

**Note: The state of North Dakota is the only state that does not require its voters to register.


If you are already registered to vote in another state or in the same state under a different address, you will likely have no problem registering at your new address.

For first time voters, there are a few general requirements that must be met:

  1. U.S. Citizenship

  2. Fulfillment of your states residency requirements (some states have a durational residency requirement, but none of them are more than 30 days).

  3. 18 years of age on or before Election Day.

Your opinion matters. Don’t forget to vote!

How to Build the Ultimate Man Cave

Football season is right around the corner. And while that might mean the return of cold weather is closer than we’d like to believe, it also means that Sundays spent on the couch eating pizza and drinking beer are acceptable again! Well, at least a little more acceptable. 

To usher in the new season, we put together a guide to help you build the ultimate man cave for all your viewing pleasures:


Duh… The cornerstone of every great man cave is the TV. Without one, you’re looking at more of a glorified basement. Get yourself something big. We’ll leave the specs up to you, but let’s just say you’re old plasma screen isn’t going to cut it. 

Some surround sound speakers or additional screens definitely won’t hurt your man cave credibility either ;).


Depending on the amount of space you have to work with (and how ambitious you are), you might even want to consider going for the full bar, like this one from The Family Handyman. At the very least though, you need to have a space for a mini fridge. It’s unreasonable to expect your friends to head all the way upstairs for a beer while the game is on.


The focus of your man cave is generally going to be the game that is going on on the TV. That said, it’s always good to have something to help take your mind off the fact that yet another week has gone by where your fantasy team has completely let you down. Again, this is very space-dependent. We love this bar-style ring and hook game that you can make yourself or purchase online

If you have some extra room to spare, throw some table games in there (think pool table or foosball or even a pinball machine!).



No man cave is complete without some cool decorations to line the walls. You have a lot of options here. Rep your favorite team with some jerseys or pictures. Hang some championship banners. Put up some memorabilia from your favorite bands. There really is no wrong way to go.


This is a no-brainer, but selecting the correct type of seating is crucial. You can go the sofa route, or you can go with individual seats. When choosing, you probably need to consider how many people you’ll normally be expecting to watch with, as well as your budget. Buying 3-4 individual seats is probably going to me more expensive than a couch. 


    When game day roles around, make sure you have the right snacks, beer, and other accommodations (like good wifi) for your guests. Once you do, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy your new man cave! 

    *** Man Cave’s for Apartment Dwellers ***

    Don’t have enough space for a man cave in your apartment? That’s okay, there’s still plenty of things you can do to make your home game-day-ready! 

    • Consider mounting your TV to save that precious floor space and make more room for guests.
    • Have a balcony? Take advantage of the beautiful fall weather by making use of your outdoor space! Maybe even consider setting up a mini-bar/ putting a cooler outside. 
    • Make the downtime between quarters and during commercials more interesting with games like this football squares pool
    • What your apartment may lack in man-cave capabilities can all be made up for with great food. Have your football party catered!

    Happy football season!

    Best Days to Move in the Fall

    Summer is coming to an end *sigh*. And, while that might mean it’s time to put away your swimsuits and flip-flops, it also means that the most expensive time to move is coming to a close *un-sigh*. 

    Here are the best (aka cheapest) and worst times to move this fall:

    Best Days to Move - June.jpg

    **Note: green denotes cheap, red denotes expensive.**

    Back to School Guide: Moving off Campus

    College is said to be one of the most transformative periods of your life. Hopefully you’ve finally learned to do laundry and cook a nutritious meal (no, microwavable mac and cheese is not a meal). For the more audacious student, you might even move off campus and learn to deal with those much-rumored utility bills. We get that you’re really busy juggling classes and making time to hang out with your friends, so we’ve put together useful tips and tools to help you become the independent adult that your parents have been dreaming about for years.

    No Fee Rentals

    Looking for an apartment in New York City can seem daunting, especially if it’s your first time. But relax! There are a ton of resources to help you. StreetEasy is an awesome real estate hub for both sales and rentals. They make finding a place super simple and even give you a tool to choose the right neighborhood.  Search their platform, and check the “No Fee Only” box to save that [not so little] bit of extra money. 


    For most people, their first time moving off campus is also their first time going through the process of finding a roommate. This is an important step, because you don’t want to be stuck living with someone who’s a slob and comes home on Tuesday at 2am causing a ruckus. Luckily for you, there are online resources to help to you do that, too! Check out Roomi. They provide an app that makes it quick and easy for you to find a trustworthy roommate. Gone are the days when you had to post an ad on Craigslist for a roommate and pray you didn’t accidentally choose a creeper.


    You don’t need to go out and spend money on cardboard boxes that you’re just going to get rid of after your move. A great place to get some is your local Target or Walmart. They are constantly getting rid of thousands of boxes and would be more than happy to give you some. Just ask. Lots of people also post ads on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace giving away boxes that they’d otherwise be putting in the trash. Save yourself some money and be environmentally friendly by repurposing boxes.


    At the end of the day, you are a college student who likely (besides the little help from your parents) has little money to be spending on a move. There are tons of ways you can save money that we have outlined here.

    Best of luck with your move off campus! We know you’re going to have a blast, and if you need any help along the way, you know that Moved can handle whatever you need!

    Household Items that Serve as Packing Supplies


    The cost of packing supplies, like most things when you are moving 🤦‍, can add up quickly. Luckily, there are lots of alternatives to packing paper, cardboard boxes, and bubble wrap that you already have sitting around your home!

    1. Towels, Blankets, Sheets and Comforters

    Soft cloth items are great for wrapping delicate things like plates and dishes. See the example below to get the most out of each towel/blanket.

    2. Suitcases, Chests and Laundry Bins

    Suitcases and chests are built for packing things safely, so why not use them to pack your stuff when you move? While we don’t recommend putting delicates inside, they’re great for clothes or other knick-knacks.

    Have a locking suitcase? You can even use it to ensure your jewelry gets to your new home securely.

    3. Trash Bags

    Instead of folding your clothes to pack them up before the move and then unfolding them all over again, just wrap them in trash bags. They’ll stay clean and unwrinkled; you won’t even have to take the hangers off!


    4. Egg Cartons and Newspaper

    Newspaper especially is an excellent substitute to packing paper and bubblewrap. Use it to wrap your dishes and silverware or crumple it up to stuff bowls and glasses.

    Egg cartons are designed to cradle fragile items and can be reused to do just that. Line the sides of a box with egg cartons using double-sided tape, place your tiny delicates inside them for protection, or use them to divide your boxes into layers or compartments.

    5. Backpacks

    Have backpacks laying around? They may not be able to hold much, but anything you can fit in there is less space you need elsewhere.

    They’re also a great option to carry valuables that you’d rather have in your possession that on the moving truck. Think jewelry and antiques.

    6. Clothes, Socks and Shoes

    Clothes and socks are great for wrapping things for protection. You can even put smaller things inside of socks and ball them up for extra protection.

    In addition, shoes tend to just get thrown in a big box and tossed onto the moving truck without much thought, but if you stuff the shoes with things first, you’d be amazed at how much space it will save you. It will also prevent your shoes from getting smushed and help them maintain their shape throughout the move.

    Best Days to Move in the Summer

    Summer is the most popular time of year to move. The weather is warm, kids are out of school, and leases are expiring. Naturally, it’s also the most expensive.
    Booking outside of peak season unfortunately isn’t an option for everyone. But to help, we’ve put together a moving calendar that highlights the cheapest times to move in the Summer months:


    Green=cheapest, red=most expensive.


    The most expensive times to move are the beginning, end, and middle (around the 15th) of every month, when leases are expiring. Weekends are also a peak time. Your best bet is Monday-Thursday.


    It’s also important we note that the sooner you book, the better off you will be. Summer is coming fast, and slots are filling up!

    Should you hire a moving company? — A Flowchart

    So you’re FINALLY ready to move out. The apartment search is over, and you can’t wait to start life in your new home. But you’re not all the way yet. You still have to actually move. One of the most common questions surrounding moving is whether you should do it yourself or hire a moving company. And while hiring movers is often much easier, there are benefits to both options.

    We created a flowchart to help you find the best option for your situation!
