10 Tips For Stress-Free Moving
The whole moving process can be a bit stressful. So check out these tips for stress-free moving.
First, you have to find the right home that fits your needs. Once you have found the home, you must pack all of your belongings and move them from your current home to the new home.
This can be daunting and stressful. Just the thought of moving often makes people cringe. There are ways to make the process go a little bit smoother, so you can enjoy your new home without all of the added stress.
10 Tips For Stress-Free Moving:
De-Clutter: Start by getting rid of things that you haven’t used in a long time. You might even sell things online for extra cash to help with moving expenses. Getting rid of unnecessary items will make you feel better in the long run, and it will make the moving process a lot easier.
Wrap Breakables: Wrap breakables in towels that you already have and need to pack. This will keep the breakables in tact and will allow you to pack multiple items in less space.
Call Utility Companies: You will want to make sure that you have called the utility companies in advance to have the utilities switched into your name. This will save you from having to rush around, remembering to do it while you are trying to pack and move.
It will also give you the peace of mind in having this task complete, knowing that you won’t have to pay for reconnect fees if you forget to call ahead of time.
Label Boxes: You are bound to be tired after moving all of the boxes into your new home. Unpacking will be so much easier if you have the boxes labeled. You might consider adding a room label to the boxes as well; that way, when the box comes into the house, it can be placed into the room that it should be in.
This makes unpacking a whole lot easier. It also makes finding items you will need right away a whole lot easier.
Leave Hangers On: Leave your clothing on the hanger. Simply throw a trash bag over the hangers and clothing. This will protect the clothing during the move, but allow you to easily transport your clothing from one closet, straight to the new one. It makes moving the items in your closet a breeze!
Use Saran Wrap: Instead of taking filing cabinets apart, or light drawers, just wrap them with Saran wrap. This will ensure that the items remain in the drawers allowing it to be easily picked up and moved.
Pack Luggage: Put your luggage to work and use it to pack items that you need to move to the new home. There is no sense in packing an empty suitcase when you could be using it to carry more things that you need to pack.
Bathroom Box: Make a box of items such as toilet paper, hand soap, and hand towels. You will be happy you have this for not only yourself but others helping you move items into your new home.
This is often one thing we don’t think about when we are crunching to pack.
Sandwich Bags: Use sandwich bags to hold screws and other small pieces when you have to take furniture apart. Once you have the screws in a sandwich bag, you can tape it to the side of the item it belongs to.
Have a Plan: Planning can allow you to have a much smoother moving day. Make a list of things that you need to accomplish before moving, the day of moving, and shortly after moving.
