14 Jun 7 Tips To Make Moving Into Your New Home Easier
With moving comes stress. Packing up your entire house calls for lots of work. Sheryl Rohen with Top Flite Financial knows this and wants to help your moving process go smoother than you could have ever imagined.
With a few easy tips and tricks, moving into a new home seems much easier than ever before.
Get organized early. The earlier you start to get things organized the better. Avoid doing things at the last minute. This only causes stress and makes the process harder and more of an annoyance.
Seize the opportunity to purge. We all know you have items lying around our houses that never get used. Take this opportunity to get rid of some of the things you know you don’t need or have no use for anymore. There is no need to throw it all out. Give it away to people or take it to charity. It will make you feel better about the clutter and the fact that someone else can use it who actually needs it.
Create a master moving to do list. Schedule and plan things out so you don’t leave everything to the last minute. This ensures that you get everything done that needs to be done. Even the little things that need to be done should be written out so that you don’t miss any step.
Label everything. Label not only what’s in the box, but where the box needs to go in terms of rooms. You could even use a color coding system for your boxes. This makes the process of unloading the car easier. You will know exactly where the box needs to go, and what you have in the box. The unloading process is made easier with this too since everything you need is together.
Sort things by category. Not only is this important when packing items into boxes, but also when loading the car or moving truck. This will make unloading easier so everything for the kitchen or whatever room is in one place.
Take pictures of electronics so you know exactly how the wiring goes. For those who are not technology savvy, this one’s for you. This helps so that when it comes time to put everything back together and plug devices in, you know exactly how they go, and you don’t have to fuss around and figure out the wiring.
The heavier the item, the smaller the box. Some say this is the golden rule to moving. This makes carrying something easier. Having a large box full of heavy items sometimes is impossible to carry. Smaller boxes are easier to move and maneuver through hallways.
