Welcome to the latest edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival! Because this is such a popular time of year for people to move, I asked our readers to send in their related blog posts to create an awesome collection of tips for an organized move. Please check them out, leave some comments, and share them with your social networks!

This was such a popular topic that I’ve decided to split it over two days. Today we’ll begin with a list of blog posts about planning a move, packing, and coping with the stress of moving.

I’d like to start by welcoming the bloggers who are participating for the first time this month:

Lauren GiammarcoOn the Move? Get Started on the Right Foot!

LauraA Moving Tip that Made Life So Much Easier

Jonda Beattie – Moving Tips

Oksana Bellas – How To Survive Your Next Move

And returning this month, we have:

Geralin Thomas – Tips on Moving with Kids (by guest blogger Helena Alkhas)

Lelah Baker-RabeTravel digest and moving: stage four

Ellen DelapMoving Day

Be sure to come back tomorrow for tips about decluttering, staging, and moving in – and to meet our newest Professional Organizers Blog Carnival Star Blogger!

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
