There are a variety of different things you have to do before making your move. Ensuring that any financial considerations are taken care of, finding the right school for your kid(s), and making sure all of the logistics have been figured out ahead of time are just a few of the many things to be determined.

Below, you’ll learn what you need to know about saying goodbye to friends before you move: when you need to start saying goodbye to people, whether or not you should get help when you move, and why it can be nice to visit your places. We hope this helps you reminisce over good times with your loved ones.

Start Saying Goodbye Early

Depending on how many people you’re leaving, it may be incredibly difficult to coordinate everyone’s schedules properly. That’s why it’s a good idea to start asking people early when it’s a good time to say goodbye.

As well, this makes it easier than having one massive goodbye party: you’re able to spend more time with people and reminisce over individual memories, instead of being overwhelmed saying goodbye to everyone at once.

Get Help During Your Move

Your going-away party can also be a great opportunity to get help during your move. It can be overwhelming to pack, and packing with friends can be a fun way to look back at good times that you’ve had together.

That said, you don’t want to force your friends to help you move if they don’t want to. Some people choose to order in food like pizza to make it feel more like a party. You also want to ask your friends before making it a moving party.

Visit Your Favorite Places

In many ways, you’re not actually saying goodbye to your friends. It’s easy to stay connected with people these days, given the proliferation of social media. Really you’re losing a specific context that you used to enjoy these people’s company in. This could be a home, a restaurant, or even a park.

By visiting your favorite places with your favorite people, you’re able to say goodbye to both at the same time.
