Recently faced with the realization of my lease ending at the end of summer, I looked around my apartment and was surprised at how much my roommates and I had acquired over the past year. I’ve been dreading the thought of having to pack everything up again, but I’ve started thinking of different ways I might be able to ease the process. Moving experiences are rarely enjoyable, no matter how exciting the next chapter of your life may be. It’s a process of deciding what to get rid of, how to decorate, what service to use, and so much more. Thankfully, we live in a time of great technology and I’ve listed several smartphone apps that can help making the moving experience more manageable!

1. sortly title


The Sortly app helps your organize your belongings into different categories so you don’t lose them during your move. You can categorize all of the boxes you are moving by storing them in a detailed inventory on your phone. The app allows you to categorize the items in each box and which room each box belongs in. Then, when it comes to unpacking, you can easily search the app to locate which item is where.

Price: Free Version & Premium Version ($9.99)

2. magic plan title

The MagicPlan app is amazing if you are furniture shopping or unsure if your current belongings will fit in your new place. The app quickly creates professional floor plans by measuring the rooms through pictures you take through the app. You can even add objects and measurements to see how a piece of furniture would fit in the floor plan. Rather than getting on your hands and knees with a tape measure, the app simply guides you in mapping out the room with your phone and generating the measurements and shape of the room.

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more
    useful than ever before.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that
    “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!
